    I just got a call from DHL stating my Taxes and Duties for a pair of C&J Ashdowns came to $216. Does this sound right for a pair of $500 pair of shoes from England?

    Seems steep. At least for imports to Canada, DHL is one of the better carriers, charging 2.5% brokerage. I'm sure fees to the US are similar. I doubt your local taxes and duties make up the rest. Give them a call and ask for the breakdown.

    That seems way high.
    I'd expect about 8.5% plus about $10 dhl brokerage fee.

    Will echo that that number sounds insanely high.

    Got a reply from Mark regarding the Rothschild in chestnut and St James II in another color.


    Apparently, I will need to have both done up as MTO and the cost is 890GBP(before discount). Just a heads up to the rest!

    In case you are between sizes 9 and 11.5, Leffot has Rothschild in Chestnut for $1125. If you are in US by the time you pay for shipping duties etc it comes about the same.

    I am still waiting for reply from Mark. Any of you guys know how much is a shipping?

    Whoa. To echo others, this sounds very steep! Anybody else in the US getting these outlandish rates?


    20 GBP to anywhere outside of the UK.

    Gents, I'm looking for recommendations for a dark brown plain captoe bal. I've emailed with Mark, who tells me that C&J Audleys are too backordered. I think the C&J Hallam might be a bit too elongated, although I'm willing to be convinced otherwise. I searched threads about the Londsdale, but it's hard to get a handle on what it really looks like. Any other ideas?

    I should just get EG Chelseas, right?

    I've exchanges some emails with Mark and am ready to pull the trigger..........what's the best/easiest way to order if in the US? Will going through the website be enough or do I need to go through Mark and give him my CC info?

    That figure for duties seems crazy high. I went to an online calculator and mens shoes carry a 5% duty, if a pair of C&J with shipping runs $375 the total due should be about $17. Definitely would like to hear what DHL says as I am thinking of pulling the trigger on a couple pair.

    Just order from the online website should be fine. I ordered a St James II in size 8 but Mark told me that they ran out so he had to order. I then change the last to MH71 at no cost and it was accommodated at the discount price. Great deal

    So after dealing with DHL and customs along with sending in details of the shoe and invoice, come to find out customs coded it incorrectly without even verifying contents. DHL stated the customs code for men's shoes has a duty rate of 10%. Duties came to be $55.86 + $6.5 (disbursement fee).

    FYI, all MTO before VAT & Discount was quoted:

    Galway: £920 (~$940 after VAT/Discount)
    Walcot: £790 (~$810 after VAT/Discount)
    Banbury: £870 (~$890 after VAT/Discount)
