I've had that happen before with Fedex.
They'll want you to fill out an Importer of Record form.
I think this is it http://forms.cbp.gov/pdf/CBP_Form_5106.pdf
It seems kind of shady since it requires SSN but it's legit.
There's some other footwear specific form you may or may not need to fill out.
Call Fedex Trade Network and ask.
They seem to only be open regular business hours (eastern time).
Chances are you're going to be hit with the $25 brokerage fee + $5 advancement fee + 9% or so duty.
They'll bill you in a week or so.
