Shipping to the U.S. is pretty expensive but it makes up for it when they have cheap restocks. 3 of the 4 times I've ordered a pair of SBs, they arrived in 3-5 days without a hitch. Yet, my most recent order was delayed in Philly for 4-5 days because of customs (making it a total of about 11 days) //forums.stashedboxes.com/public/style_emoticons//thumbs_down.gif I thought I was going to get raped by customs fees, but it turns out it was just taking a while to get through customs for some reason. Long story short, I haven't been hit by customs fees (knock on wood), but I've also only ordered one pair of shoes at a time. Shipping is usually fast; strictly from my experience: 75% of the time you get it in 4-5 days. Overall, I've had a positive experience with only a U.S. customs issue--never an issue with Caliroots itself.
