after being dragged around to all the shops with my wife who has melted my credit card buying stuff for herself and our children - I'd like to let guys know of some deals I found for myself.
Asics Gel Kayano runners are about $230 in Oz. They retail in Foot Locker in Hawaii for US $160 and it was on sale in the Foot Locker in Kalakaua St in Wakiki for $140. It was also on sale in Sports Authority for $130.
Underarmour t-shirts retail in Oz for $50-60 depending on the type of shirt. You can get the same ones in Champion or sports stores for US $34.99
At Sketchers at the Waikele outlet stores you can get shoes about $10 cheaper than in Waikiki per pair and 50% off the second pair. There are some good sales at the Adidas outlet as well. Got a pair of trackys for US $35 (about $70 back home).
At the Gap outlet in the shopping centre opposite the Waikele outlets you can get things for half the price back home eg. got a Gap hoodie for US $25
Everlast isn't a cheap brand in Australia but it is very cheap in Sears in Hawaii. Unfortunately the Sears that was at the Ala Moana shopping centre has closed but we stopped into one on the way to the outlets. Got tops on sale for US $9 and trackys for $20.
At Ross Dress for Less behind Ala Moana shopping centre I found Sketchers sports shoes for $35 (normally about $70) and we bought a Samsonite large suitcase for $99 (to take back all the extra stuff we bought!).
Hope this helps!
