eheheh :D trying to give me ideias are you?
i guess i must learn more first. i have been a long time lurker.
I usually only read, most of the times people already asked what i want to know
i think i'm too new here to start a group buy although i have two pairs of meermin
It likely won't be too soon. I just stumbled across that model this week, and I would want the suede for a summer shoe, so buying it now wouldn't make tons of sense. The Dark chocolate is really nice as well, I only want snuff suede instead because I have a casual chocolate suede shoe in my collection already.
I am also wondering if anyone from Canada has anything to say about import/duty fees? I've read a few horror stories on here already, and to be frank, it is the main reason I havent ordered yet. $220 shipped for these suede shoes is a nice deal, but $320+ isn't any more. I could get 2 pairs of Allen Edmonds for that price, and not have to worry about it all going to duty fees.
add about 31% (duty + hst) to any shoe imported and you have your deal...
I had to pay, therefore I believe everybody else has to comply with the regulations.
But the 31% applyes to shoes only.
It is actually a 18% import duty, plus 13% tax plus the fee of the broker.
One way around is for the seller to declare a lower value, or no commercial value, and most of them are not willing to do that.
