Mine aleways delivered (US) FedEx next day with no custom fees imposed or collected. The cost savings is not that great and you risk custom fees more with Royal mail than FedEx, May I recommend that you leave it as is. FedEx expedite their parcels more than RM/USPS when it comes for custome clearance. I am not sure about European custom fees and regulations.

Benson, Miller, Milton, .... I am so looking forward to getting some of these sooner or later. It is torture to wait for shoes.

   you are spot on with THAT assessment.

Royal Mail is so expensive (cheap compared to FedEx or UPS though) and their parcels take much longer than the estimated time they give you. The USPS is one of the few things I miss about living in the States.

USPS is going through a lot of pains. They keep loosing money and some wants them to deliver mail onl 3-4 days to save money. They rely on FedEx for expedired service and their customer sdervice is getting much worse. It is a shame, because USPS used to be teh best in teh world.

That is not my, nor most people's, experience with Royal Mail/Parcel Force/USPS delivery.
I've never been charged any customs/duty on any package shipped from the UK using that method.
That would be around 20 or so packages.

On the other hand, I'm probably around 90% getting charged customs/duty on an equal number of packages from the UK using fedex.
That's about 8.5% in addition to the about $30 brokerage fees that fedex imposes.

OK. Royal Mail is fine. I am not rocking the boat. I will go along the concensus. AFPOS uses FedEX next day. I have never paid custome or brokerage fees in over a dozen deliveries to-date.
But, I am with you. I do not like or want to be charged custome or brokerage fees as well.

That sounds like a lot, especially if you are buying something expensive.

The last time I got hit with customs via fedex for some Tricker's, they were classified as 6403.99.60 75
http://www.usitc.gov/publications/docs/tata/hts/bychapter/1210c64.pdf

They probably should been 6403.99.40 91 for welted footwear which is 5% but it's not worth the time and effort to get that $15 or so back.
