    +1 on this. Shippingcart is awesome, no worries on any duties. What you pay shippingcart already includes the import taxes. I recently bought $1200 worth of items, got it shipped for $53.

    From shipping cart’s website
    “Shipping Cart rates are "all in" and already inclusive of duties and taxes. Therefore, you will not be assessed any additional duties and taxes upon delivery of your shipment.”

    ^who taxed you sir and where did you pay? i find that odd since shippingcart sends the boxes direct to you via their couriers, so the courier asked you to pay tax? that's definitely not how SC operates

    ^oh we are talking about the shippingcart service sir it acts as your storage in the US and they ship it here, you pay them for the service but their quote already includes customs duties etc... you pay them via website and they send you the package direct, no duties or taxes to be paid. If you used the local postal service you would indeed get taxed if more than 10k

    That number, 93/17, got burned in my brain thanks to you guys and the posts you made above, @Sunil_K @Cmmig

    I’m on a business trip to Cebu, and whaddayaknow, Sole Academy opened their branch here 4 days ago, and the last 93/17 pair was sitting on their shelves, in my size, in the exact colorway that I was looking for (triple black = “sneakers that can be used in a work setting”)!

    So what’s a guy supposed to do?!
    Thanks again.

    I didn’t realize that mine is exactly the same, with reflective stripes, until I saw yours. The stripes look flat from many angles.
