Loads of people have been PMing me already. OK, here's the deal for anyone I haven't replied to or agreed with already
I'm willing to do this, for only a small hassle payment (once costs, fees, fuel, etc are all taken into account). These prices are non-negotiable, take or leave. I think I'm being extremely
generous in terms on the amount I'm asking, given the hassle of collecting the parcels from the post office/repacking/reposting but you're absolutely free to disagree and walk away and ask someone else.
1) If you can pay for the shoes with your own card and just need a UK delivery address, my rate is Â£30 per pair for forwarding on the shoes to a US/EU address. PM me and I will give you my postal and paypal addresses.
2) If you need me to pay for the shoes on my card if the site doesn't accept your billing address, I will require Â£230 per pair, payable in full in advance. PM me for my paypal address.
I reserve the right to refuse to deal with any member who's brand new or that I otherwise don't feel sure about for any reason.
I will close requests on Friday afternoon UK time, at which time I will order any shoes all in one go. I will need paypal payments in advance of this time. If any items sell out in the interim, I will of course refund you in full immediately.EDIT ON AUG 20 - due to sheer volume, for now, I can still take a few more if you PM me, but I think I will need to close requests on Thursday PM rather than Friday, simply because the hassle factor is becoming immense.
