Dear Mr. Stang:

This classification decision under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) is being issued in accordance with the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A sample of the complete shoe along with a sample of its unit molded bottom were submitted. By our measurements, we have determined that on this shoe, the unit molded rubber/plastic bottom overlaps the upper by 1/4 inch or more for less than 40 percent of the shoe's perimeter.
We do not consider this shoe to have a foxing-like band.
