How do you buys shoes online ?  What if I buy wrong size or don't fit right and if I want to return it ? If I have to pay return postage, then it is not worth the trouble. 
The problem shoe sizes is that the fit is not the same from one brand to another. 

There is no place buy them locally.

What are your thoughts on this ?  Do you suggest any online dealers in USA ?

Measure your feet at the longest toe, in centimeters.  Then it's not too hard to order the right size.  Width can still be a problem.

Well , "width" is one major problem. Some shoe dealers say buy one size bigger for that.

Also, as I said one dealer's size 11 is 12 for another or 10 for another. I have actually seen it.

Anyway where can I buy really lite table tennis or badminton etc shoes online , that offers free returns ?

I buy from racquetworld.com.  They pay postage on the returns, and they carry Python shoes in wide sizes.  Volleyball and squash shoes also work.  I even have a pair of indoor tennis shoes that work.  For me, the surface of the floor is very important.  I rarely play on rubber floors.

It's not just TT, buying any kind of shoe online is tricky if you haven't worn them before, or at least know the brand and their sizing.
