chaco zaagh shoes

Verified Buyer Reviewed by l123r from Wales,UK on Saturday, April 11, 2015
I have quite a few pairs of chaco shoes, boots and sandels that I have been able to purchase in the UK, I really wanted these shoes so ordered them from Sierra, the only problem with this was the cost of the import duty, horrendous to have to pay another £28.00. The shoes were as the reviews suggested,hard leather so I was prepared for this, I could hardly get them on, squashed my feet with my socks , so here's a tip I tried and it works, put the sock in the shoe first, then slip your foot in, no tight socks and the shoe fits. Now heres how I dealt with the hard leather, I purchased some Flexalan oil, similar to neatsfoot oil used to oil horse saddles and tack, coated the shoes a couple of times and now they are soft and I can actually put the shoes straight on without needing to put the socks in the shoes first, the shoes are really comfortable now and I am very pleased. Would buy from Sierra Trading and recommend them, but I am not willing to pay any more import duty. I purchased other things from America that were sent through international shipping and did not have to pay any import duty, if Sierra trading could post things like that, I would be buying lots more things from this company. Very pleased with these shoes though, hope the tips help.
