    How come Leatherfoot only carries E width for shoes? Nobody in Toronto has wide feet for F/G or EEE widths?

    Will only flip it if I change my mind on it. That said, I would give it to anybody here at cost if I change my mind.

    So happy you bought these. I absolutely didn’t need them but was going to be forced to pull the trigger at that price. No willpower.

    Completely agree. However I did purchase from them a UK E width which was still tolerable for my wide feet - Crockett and Jones

    I was going after the 8UK size. Was also going after the black half-brogue on Simpson last. That one is gone, too. I have been emailing with Jenny back and forth since last week and looks like everything I wanted is OOS. She has been a bit slow with replying to emails - but one woman team - so can't blame her.

    Were people able to finish checkout online? I kept getting an error on multiple browsers. Sucks. Missed out on some good deals in my size!

    re crossborderpickups I had a seller include the invoice after asking them not to... annoyed to say the least. especially since I paid a lot less with the 20% off coupon...

    Now to see if they will adjust

    That sucks. I'm afraid of that happening, but so far so good. Although now I might ask for a refund from a seller because they're adamant about including an invoice in the package.

    I think CBP still charge heavy duties though? I d k why but sometime my package from US are duty free, if the value isn't too high.

    I made my first transaction via CBP as a test. For an item I declared a value of 18 USD, I ended up paying around 16 CAD to pickup at CBP. I calculated saving around 20% (based on buying the same 18 USD item, plus shipping, plus eBay's import charges). Actual savings were actually better because I declared an alternate value for the item.
