RE: The tariff classification of footwear from China

Dear Mr. Armani:

In your letter dated November 4, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The submitted sample identified by you as “No. MB-SAND” is a pair of one piece molded plastic, Y-configured strap upper toe thong sandals with straps, the ends of which penetrate and are secured into a flat rubber/plastic sole by plugs. This one-piece molded plastic upper sandal is considered a “Zori” for footwear classification purposes as per TD 93-88, “Footwear Definitions” dated October 25, 1993.

The applicable subheading for this item, identified as “No. MB-SAND,” will be 6402.20.00, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for footwear with outer soles and uppers of rubber or plastics, with upper straps or thongs assembled to the sole by means of plugs (zoris). The rate of duty will be Free.

We are returning the sample as you requested.

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

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Richard Foley at 646-733-3042.
