    when you subtract VAT, the our legacy shoes seem really affordable.
    does this mean the quality is shit?


    I saw them in person and they're decent. They're made in Portugal and IMO on the same level as Camper, YMC, Surface 2 Air, Swear, etc. Not quite an Alden or C&J, but who needs every shoe to last 20 years? I'd buy them for retail if there is a style I really dig.

    i'm not in the US, but in Canada and I order from TBS all the time. i normally get charged about $20-$30 regardless of how much i order. the guys at TBS are really good about putting a lower amount on the customs forms, so fees don't end up being too high. i think it's fedex's brokerage fee (their charge for getting the package through customs quickly) that makes it that much.

    When I ordered from them, I didn't have to pay any fees to the US -- but I think it's sort of a matter of luck whether or not customs checks the package and charges anything.

    I've warned people here and sufu. I still have a pair and like them, but i acknowledge that i'm paying for the styling only. The OC shoes mostly always look nice though.


    The Kitsune Pierre Hardy blue laceups are pretty nice on the site

    I have been looking for blue shoes for a year or so, and those don't seem bad. I also like the suede Our Legacy, but I don't know anything about the quality of their shoes.

    Does anyone else find it strange that there is a field for your social security number when you register? I don't think the Swedes are trying to steal my identity or anything, but I just can't imagine why they would want to know that.
