We’ve compiled everything you’ll need to know about purchasing shoes from Amazon after the launch that’s sparking excitement throughout Australia.

At the moment, no. However, once Amazon Australia launches fully it certainly will.
Does Amazon UK or US ship shoes to Australia?

There are several shipping options on offer to Australia from both Amazon US and Amazon UK.

What brands of shoes does Amazon sell?
Amazon stocks a vast range of brands. From Crocs to Docs and from Uggs to Nikes, Amazon caters to everyone’s tastes and needs!
Are shoes cheaper on Amazon?
When Amazon Australia launches fully it will be a convenient and comfortable way to bag a shoe bargain. At present, international shipping fees from both the US and UK are preventing Amazon from being a dominant competitor price-wise, but once these are no longer an issue they’ll be strongly competing for cheapest retailer in Australia.
What are the most popular kinds of shoes on Amazon UK and US?
Amazon US’s best selling shoes include Crocs, Asics and children’s ballet pumps. Amazon UK buyers are loving orthotic insoles, Vans and Ugg slippers. So as you can see, Amazon offers a diverse range of footwear.
Does Amazon Australia sell running shoes?
Again, at present, the answer is no. But based on Amazon operations in the UK and US, we do expect that once launched Amazon Australia will indeed retail running shoes, including popular brands such as Onemix, New Balance and Asics.
