The applicable subheading for style Diva will be 6403.99.2060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for footwear with outer soles of rubber and uppers of leather, other footwear, other than covering the ankle, made on a base or platform or wood, for women. The rate of duty will be 8% ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 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.
