I'm looking at some BB Peal & Co. bals. I have AE 5th Aves in 11D. The fit is good, maybe a little tight in the toe box at the end of the day. Any insight on whether to go 11D on the Peals or size up to 11.5D?
Has anyone else previously ordered from Robert Old to the US? I'm trying to find out if I will be hit with customs or not.
Best way is to contact them and ask who they use as a currier. Honestly, there is always a possibility of getting customs fees. The issue is that certain curriers (i.e., DHL) charge handling fees that are excessive (in my opinion). Once you find out who they use, search the frequency people had been charged customs.
I've never been hit with customs with DHL. However, other people seem to have ordering from other websites. I'm thinking it''ll provide a more accurate expectation to ask people who have ordered from Robert Old specifically. I'm doing this because the customs fee+international purchase fee (my bank) might not make it worthwhile to order C&J at a cheaper price overseas rather than the US flagship store in NYC. But good idea-- I've just e-mailed RO to get info on the courier
Evil shoes. I hope you beat them severely for their selfish behavior!
Frankly I didn't realize the English were that specifically attached to their Spainish brethren. But I'm not currently up to date on the state of shoe politics and social alliances.
Not me either so i took a chance. They must be related somehow, they both goodyear welted, oxfords and brouges
