These pads are designed to be placed on the foot before the foot is inserted into a ballerina point shoe.

The applicable subheading for the silicone toe pad will be 3926.90.9880, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other articles of plastics, other. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.
