    How often would the C&J seconds be re-stocked? I am looking for size 6 medium width.

    I've never ordered from the UK or Europe. Can someone tell me the odds of being hit with customs fees and what % they run?

    I've used them several times and some of the beat customer service I've ever had. They showed pictures of the flaws and in Canada I got delivery the next day! It really was a great shopping experience and am definitely going to buy here again.

    We add stock regularly - and thank you for the very warm welcome!!!

    Regarding comparing the lasts, here are some thoughts - C&J 348 last is an elegant long shape and an long toe line with chiselled toe. The closest AS last to this would be the AS 104, on which the Cheveley or Snape is made or perhaps the AS 99 that Hadleigh and Orford are built.

    The C&J 341 on which the Sydney is made is most easily compared to the AS 106, such as the Bourne.

    The C&J 317/ 314 and 325 lasts are all regular widths and shorter in length with a rounded toe and these compare to the AS 80 and AS 87 lasts in length and toe shapes.

    It's great to see that you do Saphir products - they really are superb.

    I just ordered a load for myself and for a few of the guys here a couple of weeks ago from Valmour! The only thing is your pricing is a little high for Saphir, would be nice if you could be as reasonable as you are for your shoes.

    Seems really random. The $500-ish boots from Pediwear I paid $36 (IIRC) Custom Fees

    The $800 MTO Boots from Trickers I didn't have to pay any custom fees.

    The $1300 MTO Boots from G&G I also didn't have to pay any custom fees.

    I think it really really depends on what method they used to ship the shoes and how they filled the forms out. National Mail carriers (such as Royal Mail for UK) seems to not require Custom Fees as often as private companies such as DHL.

    FedEx seems to be standard for more than one pair of shoes. I asked if they could ship by Royal Mail (to avoid the customs problem), but they said Royal Mail is limited to a certain weight. Fingers crossed...

    Requested Royal Mail shipping on my order. They said yes. Two hours later I got a shipping confirmation on my AS Dulwichs.

    Would be interesting to see how much, if I do, get dinged by Canada Customs.
