    Bought them on Tuesday, they were delivered on Wednesday to East Coast US. Amazing service! Of course, that's why shipping is £25..

    I haven't been charged anything yet. Should I expect a bill later? There is paperwork from Trickers, but no bill.

    You still might get a love letter from DHL with the bill.
    I got my red monkey boots from Shoe Healer on Monday last week and a DHL bill arrived within a week.

    I've bought 3 or 4 pairs from retricker and only been hit up for customs once.

    I think the proper duty charge for shoes like Tricker's is 8.something%.
    DHL fked it up both times and I got charged 12% and 10%.
    Not enough to raise a stink about.

    DHL charges a somewhat reasonable $6 broker/handling as opposed to the Fedex $30 or so.

    Thanks for the info. I suspected a bill was coming later. The waybill says fair value is £70. So at 8%, should be under $10, right? ...+ broker fees.


    BTW, what does Tricker's do to their leather that they have this ultra soft feel? This is the fourth pair I have handled. The leather is nowhere near as stiff as any other pair of shoes I've seen.

    There's still a good chance you won't get a bill. I think I'm about 2 for 10 getting DHL bills.

    I forgot to mention, nice Belgrades too.

    We're supposed to be sneaking a few pairs in our shop. I'll keep everyone updated once I hear something concrete.

    Thank you. And thanks for the sizing advice, as well. Worked out well..

    Now, I can see how you've ended up with such a large collection of Tricker's. There is so much cool stuff available from their ebay store and from the other retailers like Shoehealer - I've had to restrain myself from going crazy and have to tell myself to hold out for only "must have" items.

    Higher quality leathers and softer linings. But Tricker's leather suppleness is still notches below the higher end RTW shoemakers like EG, JL, G&G or even C&J.

    Trickers Eaton in the wild. Didn't use on wild hiking trails, but did walk on easy trails with 'em. Not a scuff on them after. Just a bit of mud which was easy to clean off.
