The applicable subheading for the both boots will be 6401.92.9060, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (HTSUS), which provides for waterproof footwear with outer soles and uppers of rubber/plastics: Other footwear: covering the ankle but not covering the knee: other, other. The general rate of duty will be 37.5 percent ad valorem.
