Fits similar to rain, feels slightly looser in toe box. Higher instep.

 

Not particularly good for wide feet and bad for low instep.

Maybe someone here can clear this up for me.

Why is Fedex Priority cheaper to the US than USPS? USPS says it'll take longer but it's more expensive. Reason why I ask is because most people seem to agree that USPS doesn't charge you a customs fee, so in order to avoid that I was going to choose USPS as my shipping option.

Yes. FedEx will hit you with a hefty fee. USPS can take a long time in some cases. But usps is the better option on a cost basis.

^ USPS delivered my boots a week ago with no fees and it tool 8 days from Stockholm to Texas.

Very true & completely agree

Yeah I figured that much, was just curious in the reasoning for the price difference between the two. Seems like I may be saving money using USPS anyway, even though it originally costs more.

Unless you get Stcrispin then you have no other choice but fedx

I was looking at Carmina but decided to hold off for a few weeks. But they gave me the option of Fedex or USPS with USPS bet 150 SEK more than Fed ex

Regular post (USPS for US clients) is simply more expensive for us to use. We have a good contract with FedEx and that's why it's cheaper to use. Customs fee to the US is 8.5% so its actually not that bad.

It's only a matter of time until we will have to discontinue the USPS option, both EG and Carmina is putting some pressure on us to stop this because USPS is so lousy in regards of collecting customs. For StC we have already stopped because they demanded this.

Hard to capture the greatness on my lousy phone. Will try again when no crying children...
