Could you please help me. l need to import my designer shoes

Resolved Question:

Could you please help me. l need to import my designer shoes from China. The manufacturer is asking me to comply with UK law Customs and Excise in order the shoes doesn't get seized.
Does the "Made in China" need to be printed on the outsole or it can be attached on a sticker or fabric?
Thanks you very much

Hello,

There is no requirement that the shoes be labelled with a country of origin label. So, it is really up to you to have the "Made in China" printed in a sticker or fabric, or in the outsole, or you may choose not to have it.
