They ship via Royal Mail. Once the shoes arrive in the US they are turned over to the US Post Service. When the shoes come through customs in the US you may or may not end up paying import duties depending on whether or not they are noticed by the customs agents. The shipper has no control over this and no way to predict what duty will be assigned, if any. I just received a pair with no duty due. But that's just the luck of the draw I guess.

It should be noted that in the US, whether you pay import duties or not depends highly upon the method of delivery, IME. I have had to pay import duties on every item I've ever bought that qualifies for them when DHL or UPS was used as the method of shipping. When EMS was used, I have never had to pay import duties before, and I've received dozens of qualifying shipments through EMS internationally.

It's more than a few pence, depending on the order, you could be paying up to several hundred dollars in customs fees. If there's a way to legally avoid those charges, why not discuss it?

Maybe it is a small timer discussion ... but the cost of a CJ Hangrade + DHL/UPS/Fedex fees + customs duty is more than G&G, so there is no harm is knowing which vendor works best for a small timer's pocket.

 

I recently had to pay duty to India Post, the national service which handles USPS shipments in India. This was the first time I had to do so with India Post while I have had to do so everytime with UPS/DHL etc. A recent Red Wing boots cost me more than a pair of CJ handgrades.

Hey guys, I'm thinking about getting a MTO pair of Grants in midnight navy on theTG73 last .
How do you think this would look?
Is the midnight navy almost black?
If anyone has this model in this color scheme, can you please kindly post a picture?

Thanks,

There's a Navy Calf (aniline coloured) and a Midnight Blue Calf (crusted with a vintage look).

Navy is very dark.

This is only my recommendation and cannot be guaranteed:

I ship worldwide from the UK. If I use Royal Mail or Parcelforce Priority Mail my customers don't usually have custom problems. These companies use the local delivery service in the destination country which seem to be more lenient about attached documents & duties.

If I use FedEx, UPS, or other couriers like these, the customs declaration is taken very seriously. If you are purchasing from the UK, try to ask which service the seller uses. Worth noting that if it's Parcelforce Datapost ( their fastest service ) even Parcelforce use FedEx in the destination country for their faster service so more detailed documentation is required so try to avoid.

As standard I use the following:

Royal Mail "Small Packet" International Signed For service...Parcels under 2KG's

Parcelforce "International Priority" service...Parcels over 2KG's

Please note that this is not a guaranteed solution but it seems to work.
