Nice! Aieyric. Have you treated them with anything or polished them since picking them up?

These have been polished a couple of times they have a couple of months on them in this picture (they look the same now, some months later)

Aieyric, those look amazing. I can't believe I didn't see these shoes earlier.

Don't ever order internationally, so Im not sure. But will I have to pay a customs duty? Im in the states.

I'm sure I'm hexing myself, but I've never paid duty on an incoming shipment. From others' experiences, certain products tend to get nailed. I specifically didn't order shoe trees on the MTO because it seems wood products attract a lot of attention at customs.

Yeah it seems like everyone who orders trees has to pay. Some slip through unnoticed without trees.

Most have been hit with customs and brokerage fees.  Plan on the additional 10% and be thrilled if your shoes somehow sneak through.

10% would have been nice.

I got hit with like $45 on one pair and $59 on the other.

Dang! So really a pair of the double monks shipped to the states would end up being almost 300 shipped.

IME, invoices under $300 declared value have little chances to be scrutinized by customs.

 

p.s., shoe importing tariff to US is about 8.5% AFAIK.  FedEx charges $6.5 fund advance fee for prepaying tariff.

Surely that knowledge is one of the first things you should learn on a forum such as this - assuming you didn't before.

 

There's a reason Meermin MTO costs ~350 Euro and a bespoke pair is 2000+

 

Actually there are various MTO and bespoke methodologies.  Various different price points as well.  It goes as low as $800 in US or £1100 for Tricker's bespoke.

 

And then there are people whose feet are so deformed that MTO or even RTW fit them well.

 

But the last should be first; if it doesn't fit, sizing up/down is almost always a bad choice, unless its by design.
