    whoever they use you can't get hit with fees if they mark it low.

    Most countries have a threshold for customs. In NZ i think it's $200. Anything below that is exempt.

    My (Toronto) mail man told me a while ago you can get hit with duties on anything valued over $25, even if it's marked as a gift.

    anyone can wear boots all 4 seasons?
    ive said it before, but i really like hi cut footwear more than lowtops

    white sneakers --> white suede boots

    brown boots
    black boots

    etc.

    anyone find it boring? anyone only wear shoes/boots and no sneakers? and i am not referring to anything MC.

    i donno but i can say i have little interest in buying sneakers again. i still like wearing the few i have though, and i might be getting the damir ones but they look not much like other sneakers i guess :alien:

    the damir footwear ive seen do not resemble sneakers at all.

    i guess sneaker boots also fall under boots (SW&D)

    in general i am referring to high cut footwear, and most sneaker boot hybrids look horrible.

    but anyway it's irrelevant to your point, with which i am agreeing more and more. i won't stop wearing the ones i have, i am particularly victim to the cdg[COLOR=FF0000]<3[/COLOR]chucks, but i see little point in buying more. though this is partly because nothing in that category interests me...what lead you to this ?

    There's no fees for shipping between countries that are part of the EU but since Norway isn't a member I risk getting hit by fees. The treshold is $35 for stuff you buy from abroad and $170 for gifts received from abroad.

    the aesthetics is what mainly made me think of this. thought about it several months ago.

    aside for shoes worn with suits, i find low cut shoes/sneakers with denim/pants not a great look unless you still are entertaining the idea of "stacking you denim". personally, i find most of my pants with 7.5" hem anyways so unless you go skinny (7" or smaller) the stacking would look weird.
    tbh, if i could, i would change all my AE shoes to dress boots even

    pants in general just fall better on ankle or higher cut footwear IMO, and from my experience.

    take my most recent waywt. i think a pair of light colored (white suede boots) would make my pants appear better than falling on top of some lowtop vans.
    ankle or higher cut footwear give the ankle area a bit more "volume" for pants.

    plus, i do not wear shorts of any kind except to the gym. the boots/hi-top footwear i have seen throughout the forum (MC and SW&D) also look far more nicer.

    Saw Kanye and Jay-Z last night. Kanye was wearing Rick I believe? Must have been crazy hot for him because I could feel the pyro from the 100s section.
