In regards to friendly shipping. Unfortunately, our shoes are shipped out from China to your doorstep (being the fastest and most safe way). We are so sorry if that causes any inconvenience, but the duties and tax are on your side.
Also please note that it's because we ship from China that we can offer reduced international shipping. And as startup, we currently do not have freight, distribution and warehousing to provide another service for you.
In terms of value declared, we will try our absolute best to get you the best rate possible.
