RE: The tariff classification of footwear from China.

Dear Ms. Singer:

In your letter dated August 11, 1993, on behalf of J.P. Original Corp., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Style 77099 is a woman's over-the-ankle shoe with a plastic upper and a unit molded rubber/plastic lug sole. It has a mock welt and lace closure.

The applicable subheading for this shoe will be 6402.91.40, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other footwear with outer soles and uppers of rubber or plastics, covering the ankle, having uppers of which over 90 percent of the external surface area is rubber or plastics. The rate of duty will be 6 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
