Buying shoes online in Australia through Amazon

Everything you need to know about buying shoes from Amazon Australia based on countries that already have Amazon

Amazon is a shopping sensation that not only dominates media, clothing and toy sales, they also sell shoes!

Heels, boots, wedges and sandals are just a few examples of the footwear Australians will be able to purchase with the click of a mouse once Amazon Australia is fully functional.

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


Does Amazon Australia sell shoes?

At the moment, no. However, once Amazon Australia launches fully it certainly will.

Does Amazon UK or US ship shoes to Australia?

Yes. Both Amazon US and Amazon UK offer international delivery of shoes to Australia.

How long does shipping take?

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

Amazon US shipment times:

Standard: 9–12 working days

Expedited: 7–11 working days

Priority: 2–5 working days

Amazon UK shipment times:

Standard: 5–10 working days

Priority: 4–6 working days

How much will shipping cost?

The shipping options available are charged at standard rates plus additional charges per kilogram (UK) or pound (US). Pricing is outlined below:

Amazon US shipping:

Standard: US$6.99 + US$2.99/lb (approximately AUD$8.62 + AUD$3.70/lb)

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.
