    Anyone know what the usual custom/import tax percentage is on a pair of CPs? (figured they'd all be the same, rubber sole, leather top).

    And I'm asking about shipping into the US, not Canada.

    Thanks in advance,

    K.

    if those are reg CP achilles, they always end up on sale at a few spots for less than $200.00 every year

    Yea, $200 is good for me, but I cannot find any place selling them for that price, especially in my size 46/12

    Was it shipped by Fedex? Fedex usually mails the duty/customs fee a week or so later.

    Nope it was UPS. Wearing them today in fact. I wonder if I didn't see the duty since I had them shipped here to my work, we have a UPS account and ship hundreds of thousands of dollars a year with UPS. Maybe they just charged our house account...?

    Fucker. I knew before clicking which pair it was, and, that if it was in stock, that I'd have another pair of cps on the way. Thanks for the heads-up. I think the five holes are sweet, and that the blue pair will look sharp through the fall. Basically replacing my navy authentic as the go-to summer shoe.

    I ordered a sweater from them a week or two ago, and it got to me (in the US) in like 3 days. I think theres something wrong with your order. Even customs doesn't take that long. Did you get emailed a tracking number?

    yep, just checked, my order didn't go through. the five holes are now sold out too, except for the horrific yellow color lol.

    bummer, those were going to be my white summertime sneakers for the next few years.

    Big reductions at Caliroots.

    I've found them great when ordering before and had my white gum achilles delivered within 3 days of ordering so they may be more suitable to deal with for European customers.
