RE: The tariff classification of footwear from China

Dear Mr. Maher:

The submitted sample, identified as Style# E7704G002/58604G002, is a little girl’s size 7 shoe with a predominately rubber/plastics material upper that does not cover the ankle and a rubber/plastic outer sole. The external surface of the upper includes a suede leather toe portion, a small suede leather heel patch, sewn-on textile material side stripes and a narrow textile ankle collar. The shoe has two adjustable hook-and-loop closure straps at the instep and a cemented and sewn-on molded rubber/plastic bottom with a foxing-like band that overlaps the upper at the sole by as much as ¼-inch. You have informed this office by telephone that the shoe will be valued at over $3 but not over $6.50 per pair.

The applicable subheading for this infant/child’s size 7 shoe, identified as Style# E7704G002/58604G002, will be 6402.99.7090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for footwear with outer soles and uppers predominately of rubber or plastics, which is not sports footwear, which does not cover the ankleotherwhich has a foxing or a foxing-like bandother and which is valued over $3.00 but not over $6.50 per pair.
