So GATS are $355 US when selecting "US" as shipping country. They are £259 when shipping to UK which is ~$370. Theoretically the price should be somewhere around 370 / 1.2, which is obviously not $355 So the 20% off coupon just gives you VAT off basically.
Any reason that the VAT excluded price on End is the same as VAT included price for continental EU stories? Does UK apply VAT exclusively versus inclusively of price? Just curious~
VAT refund is not the full 20% though~
It includes VAT, look up VAT refund on Google.
You can check FR prices by going to and changing your location to France. They are significantly cheaper.You should theoretically save 20% or so for VAT if you ship it, however you will most likely pay 20% in duties so it evens out. If you just bring it back you have a good chance of the customs officer not caring even if you declare (I always do). I've never had to pay any duties on stuff I've physically brought back even though I've always declared full value.
I'm pretty sure they still make some pairs from Italy. For example the classic black and white crepe soles in FW last year were retailing for 900 - 1100 USD and if I recall were MII. Even the classic versions usually retail for ~700 or so versus the cheaper price on HBX. Just pointing out the MiP as why they're cheaper in case people get suspicious. The only real difference I've noticed is a slightly different toe box, otherwise leather seems just as good between MiP and...
I think they sell the MIP versions, which are a bit inferior to MII (I have a couple pairs in both origins)
Ah, I wonder if I should just try my luck out when I'm in France next month, although it does seem like its been selling out pretty quickly.
@jwoowoo Any idea of places that might have the distressed L01? I have the normal L01 and although I love it it definitely feels like I have to baby it a bit. Would love to get a nice version of it that I can just beat up. As far as I can tell its not on their websites which might indicate its out of stock and hard to come by in the stores as well.
