    Thai business woman and son:)

    My wife and her son are convinced they will make millions buying sneakers (runners) in Canada and selling them to Nut's friend's at University

    There is demand and they will make a bit of money

    What is funny is that my wife knows she can make a lot more money buying high end handbags here and sell them in Thailand

    But, even though she won't admit it
    She wants her son to look cool at school getting sneakers that are hard to get in Thailand 5555

    Surely import duty would negate any profits

    This would just be "carry in"

    They were talking about a bigger scheme with shipping, but as you point out not feasible with import duty

    And that's why she really is just doing to to make her son look cool 555

    Looks like Chob's wine smuggling days are numbered 55.
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    He could wear them once, take back in his case and sell for near new price.
    If they look as though they have been used. surely no duty on that.

    Whoever he sells them to all is has to say is that he wore them once, realised they were to small, so decided to sell them

    A lot of talk on Thai forums apparently about Thai expats getting stung on duty e.g. bringing in two or three handbags, gifts, etc. So I now get lumbered with the gifts!
