I just found out I will be traveling to Brazil (Rio), Montevideo (Uruguay), and most likely Buenos Aires, which is very close to Montevideo. So of course I am thinking of buying shoes. My question is: Is there a significant price difference in buying shoes (CIF, or similar) locally in Latin America, specifically BA, compared to buying them in the States of Europe? I know that shipping and/or taxes can be a significant cost if buying online or in the States/Europe, and that buying in an authentic store is a chance to try on many pairs and such. But strictly speaking, is the price of the shoe itself likely to be cheaper in Argentina, say, compared to buying it in the States, or is it like any name brand item, where the price of the product will generally be the same worldwide?
