Posted:I've been trying to buy THESE converse boots for my sister's partner, who is a huge comic strip fan, Batman being one of his favorates. The problem I'm having is they say that I can't export the boots to the UK.



So my cheeky question is, is there anyone in the USA willing to buy these for me and post them on to me if I paypal them the money to cover all costs? I know they won't get here by Christmas as I've left it all a bit late, but if anyone wouldn't mind doing this for me I would be very grateful.



Oh and any Batman fans out there help me on the colour choice. I like the black red ones but they do come in yellow too and well the Batman badge in the original was yellow. What do you think a true Batman fan would prefer?

Posted:I think a true Batman fan, speaking as a comic fan (though not batman) would prefer the yellow. Though I agree the red/black are awesome looking.

PM on the way.

Posted:Sadly Dunc its looking like it won't be either as I have been emailed by Converse saying

Written by:
Hello Lynne!

We have only two shipping options available on converse.com:
1. Domestic- a domestic order placed with a US issued credit card shipping to an address inside the US
2. International-- an international order placed with an international credit card shipping to an international address.

We cannot accept an international order with a US shipping address or, a domestic order with an international credit card.


Thank you,
Converse.com
THank you,
Converse.com




Which isn't very helpful as I wanted to pay for them online and then have them shipped to Pele, as she had kindly offered to receive them and post them on. It annoyed me to be honest, do they not want to make money?

Posted:I've already thought of that thanks Cole...... this present idea never happened sadly, not for lack of people offering to help. Pele was all set to order the boots for me but they ran out of the size I needed frown Ah well.

Big thanks to all who offered to help me. hug

Next time I'll just have to get my act together a bit faster ubblol
