Yes, I received shoes in Canada without customs and tax claims. They were cheaper, plus I ordered C&J trees. Those are very nice. And access to shoes: They claim to need 4 weeks headsup for out of stock items. Each time (twice) I ordered shoes, I was told that they would be 4-6 weeks from the factory. Suddenly, 2-3 days later the order was filled and shipped. Both times. So, they have good access at the factory, I presume.
