Buying from UK won't ship to Switzerland

Hi
I am trying to buy a particular pair of hiking shoes from a UK shop. The maker and their outlets all do not ship to Switzerland. But other shoe makers do. Is this something that each business has to secure an import deal? Any ideas on how to get around it. I don't know anyone in the EU to have the shoes shipped there.
Thanks!

It's just a choice, they can't be bothered.

Re: Buying from UK won't ship to Switzerland

Do you live near France or Germany? I usually buy and get delivered to post office in France 'Poste Restante' - and pay a very small fee to retrieve.


But you can buy boots from Switzerland you know - Decathlon is a good choice.
