    There's supposed to be no duties, but it'll garner taxes though, to the effect of 13% of the stated value on the package. I think going with you would probably be the best price a Canadian can get first quality 1K Miles for.

    Yeah, it looks like even with the tax and shipping people would save a good chunk of change.

    probably true but hard for me cause ive not been able to find a 1000k boot anywhere near my size to try for size here in toronto. its said alot here that we ought to size down 1 full size but if i have to return to you cause wrong size i will end up losing the money i would save if i knew my size.

    I would, but I live in the Midwest where we get rain, sleet and snow.

    It is hit or miss. I have had stuffs sent to me from US with no tax nor duties and other time with tax and 'broker fees' charged by the courier. I was told that getting stuffs shipped by USPS has the lowest chance of getting hit with duties.

    Epaulet also has black 1K Miles on markdown, in a few larger sizes and 7.5; pretty good deal at $255.

    Go to a different cobbler. I had my NIB 1K's half-soled no problem. I chose Vibram's Raptor sole. Cost me $27 bucks.

    I just bought a pair today from B2 on Queen St. W. They had 1 pair in rust, and 1 pair in brown. The rust just happened to be my size. On sale for $275 too.

    Anyone tried removing the to reinforcement so the toe settles naturally and not have that weird bump even after multiple wearing?

    Possibly, I really liked the contrast of the brown soles but it wouldn't be worth me paying full price for the soles alone. Any idea of how I can remove the black polish from the soles? I think I can use fine grit sandpaper to remove some of the black polish then seal with some sno seal.
