Brand new pair of unworn dark brown lace up boots, leather bottoms with suede uppers. Been waiting until the winter hit to wear them, but I am thinking abiout the wet and salt that comes with a New England winter.
Any suggestions on how to treat the boots before the first wearing, or even if I should treat them at all, so that I can head off any potential problems?
Thanks in advance.
I am having a pair of shoes shipped to me from the EU.
The company says that they want tto charge me VAT, but my recollection is that mailing items to the USA are not subject to VAT.
Can anyone clear this up for me?
