Hi All
Can anyone tell me or give me suggestions how I can purchase a pair of Nike trainers on Ebay US. Unfortunately they dont ship to Switzerland.

Many thanks!

I can tell you that anything posted (mailed) to you from outside of Switzerland will most likely attract Swiss VAT plus a substantial "service charge" levied by the post office, which alone will amount to more than the VAT.

Unless these shoes are a really amazing bargain, I'd look at buying them here or in Germany, on a shopping expedition.

Have you asked the seller to ship it here? Some will despite what the auction page states.

As a first tip: if they're being sold as 'Niki' they're almost certainly fake.

I've always wondered why the counterfeit factories seem to hire so many dyslexics?

Presumably as an attempt to avoid claims of counterfeiting; KNIE is not NIKE. But the logo looks rather a lot like the famous US$35 swoosh.

That was my first thought - that these are a special promotional commission for a well-known Swiss entertainment family.
