Typically if your order weighs more than 2 kg, CBSA will "flag" & investigate further and most likely charge if they can. I've heard of them using the internet to confirm prices in the past. You'll most likely need to produce a receipt for $100 for the shoes if you want to make a claim. I have to pay 18% on European made shoes, and then 12% GST/PST (or HST) on top of that. So the $110 on the $350 is normal.
