I had 3 pairs shipped from one of the shops on Jermyn St late last year. They were shipped ParcelForce in the UK, then transferred to the USPS for delivery here and I paid no duties/fees. As others have said, UPS, DHL, sometimes FedEx, almost always collect duty and fees. From anecdotal info, and my one experience, your chances of escaping these fees increase if you request C&J to use ParcelForce.
