Why do you charge $10.00 shipping on a small item like 1 pair of shoes?

Actually, to ship 1 pair of shoes almost anywhere in Canada will usually cost more than $10.00 (just check the postage) because of the way Canada Post decides on costs. They measure length, width and depth. Any item that is not flat goes as a parcel and the same price stands for a light item or one weighing up to 1 kg. To package a pair of shoes without crushing them means a measured parcel. One solution is to order a number of items you really want and the price is still $10.00 (for the first 4 items and then increases a small amount as items are added). In any case, your postage does not exceed $13.00 - regardless of size and weight.
