What is a Footwear Declaration?

U.S. Customs and Border Protection and other U.S. agencies require all footwear to be accompanied by the Footwear Declaration form, detailing specific requirements.

All footwear must be accompanied by a Footwear Declaration form also known as the Interim Footwear Invoice that ensures it has met all requirements set by U.S. Customs. Information such as the types of materials used to make the shoe, where the shoe was made, and the type of shoe(s) being shipped are some questions that you will find on the Footwear Declaration form. Below is an example of the form.
