The high price of footwear in Belize…

What does it take to purchase a pair of shoes online from Belize?

Perseverance, perseverance, and lots of money.

I finally managed to get through the maze of non-shipping destinations, non-existent Zip codes, and wrong email addresses, to order a pair of ordinary sneakers – $35.95 US. However, by the time all the charges (duty, shipping, etc.) had been added up it came to $112. US!

Yikes.
