Ramones


I acquired some new Rick Owens footwear today in the form of shearling lined leather Ramones. It's about time I got my hands on some RO sneakers. I found them for a sweet price online at a store based in Kuwait called 4. This sweet price became WAY less sweet when I got nailed with $250 worth of shipping/processing/duty/tax fees. SO FRUSTRATING! So here is another store I will likely never shop at again. And to note, these did not come in half sizes (or maybe they did and were sold out) so I went with a half size up. They're really big so I should have gone a half size down.

4 notes:

Kim they are such cool looking sneakers. Are you saying they are too big for you to wear? The duty and taxes are outrageous. I have ordered very little from overseas but our system must be different as I have never incurred additional charges. I'm really sorry as I know how keen you are on these.

I always manage with shoes that are "too big". Thick socks, insoles, whatever it takes. I wore them to work today and they're ok.
Canada sucks a** for extra charges. We get nailed unless it's made in Canada or the US. There seems to be no exceptions if you order stuff from anywhere else.

Glad you were able to make them work after all - especially given how much you paid in additional fees. Now let's see you wear them...! :)

The day I wore them I forgot my memory card - so there's only an iPhone photo on IG (so far).
