USPS or Fedex? 

Is it worth it to pay 300 SEK for USPS versus 150 SEK for Fedex? 

FedEx for me. One guy on here just posted that his shoes have been tied up with the post office for 17 days; last time I had shoes shipped via USPS they were sent to Atlanta!

JezeC I am normally 10 & 9.5 much more closer to 9.5 USA. I tried on AE park avenue 9.5 was a good snug fit all this time I have been wearing size 10 shoes which are little big because that's what Alden & AE guy recommended. So from 9.5 USA went down to 8.5 UK for carmina rain last. After doing some research I liked carmina chukka boots that they are having on sale at the moment. On Detroit last so went with 8Uk on both loden & burgundy chukka. Hope fully they will fit. I also have Santonies chukka 8.5 F they run little big. So said what the hell try my luck to it's 8 UK.

To give another perspective, I had shoes shipped from Skoaktiebolaget via USPS. The shoes took exactly 1 week to get to my house with no troubles and no customs fee.

You're always gonna hear horror stories with every carrier. I've order 4 times from SkoAB through USPS and they've all come within a week with no customs fees.

We will have to discontinue USPS later this year probably, U.S. retailers are putting severe pressure on most manufacturers, forcing them to restrict exports to the States, especially because USPS are lousy with charging customs. There will be changes coming later this year, not just at Skoaktiebolaget but most EU retailers in the classic men's wear business. Just a heads up!
