They ship to the US, but don't take off VAT automatically. They referred me to http://www.globalblue.com who they said they work with. I've only had experience with this Global Blue when purchasing in person in the EU and then redeeming at the airport. Not sure how this works with an internet purchase and they didn't seem to want to volunteer the info. I got a very quick response. I was on the fence on a couple pairs, but have decided to pass so I didn't ask any further about the VAT.
Thanks for the follow-up. I'd be disinclined to go through a third party for a VAT refund. Particularly when so many vendors simply deduct it at the outset for exported shoes. Appreciate the info all the same.
