I used to run a small business where nearly all of my sales were online, and usually shipping out of state. I guarantee you that Kent is not making any money on shipping. All you have to do is go to usps.com and spend five minutes with their shipping cost calculator. It's only when you get to really, really big volumes that you can both negotiate lower shipping rates, and care less about the money you're losing on shipping.

The trench boot overall feels like a nicer boot than the 1Ks - the general level of finish is cleaner, the toe/vamp lining is more substantial, and the leather seems to be of a slightly heavier grade (although that could just be my imagination - they're both Horween Chromexcel).
