RE: The tariff classification of a leather athletic shoe.

Dear Ms Sung:

This letter is a supplement to Binding Ruling D85108.

Due to a miscommunication with your office, model MFB105 Air Tuned Force 2 was classified as a style and design that may be commonly worn by both sexes. Based upon additional information, this item is solely classifiable as footwear for men, as there is, in fact, a similar corresponding athletic line for women.

The applicable subheading for style MFB105 will be 6403.91.6040, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other footwear with outer soles of rubber or plastic and uppers of leather, covering the ankle, for men, youths and boys...other: tennis shoes, basketball shoes, gym shoes, training shoes and the like: other. The rate of duty is 8.5 percent ad valorem.

A copy of this supplemental letter should be given to your broker and members of your staff for attachment to all copies of Binding Ruling #D85108. If entry documents have been filed without this correction, the supplemental ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.?INCLUDE F:\\WPFILES\\PIRP\\BINDRULE\\94\\801413.???INCLUDE F:\\WPFILES\\PIRP\\BINDRULE\\818625.???INCLUDE F:\\WPFILES\\PIRP\\BINDRULE\\94\\801413.???INCLUDE F:\\WPFILES\\PIRP\\BINDRULE\\818625.??
