Application for Subzone for U.S. Shoe Corporation Plant; Foreign-Trade Zone
46; Cincinnati, OH 
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Greater Cincinnati Foreign-Trade Zone, Inc., grantee 
of FTZ 46, requesting special-purpose subzone status for the storage and 
distribution facilities of U.S. Shoe Corporation in Cincinnati, Ohio, 
within the Cincinnati Customs port of entry. The application was submitted
pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended 
(19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 400). 
It was formally filed on July 17, 1987.  

   U.S. Shoe is a retailing and footwear manufacturing firm with 1985 sales
of $1.9 billion. Headquartered in Cincinnati, it has 16 footwear 
manufacturing plants in 7 states. 
   The proposed subzone is for the company's primary raw material and 
finished product storage and distribution center, covering 15 acres at 
Eastwood and Kingsley Drives, Cincinnati. Raw materials for footwear 
production are received, stored, and distributed to U.S. manufacturing 
plants. Some 35 percent of the materials are sourced abroad. The facility 
also receives finished footwear from the company's production plants and 
directly from abroad for distribution in the U.S. and abroad. These 
operations employ close to 300 persons.   

   No manufacturing approvals are being sought. Zone procedures will allow
the company to defer duty payment on the raw materials and finished footwear
sourced abroad. Zone savings will contribute to the company's overall cost 
reduction program, improving its international competitiveness. 
   In accordance with the Board's regulations, an examiners committee has 
been appointed to investigate the application and report to the Board. The 
committee consists of: Dennis Puccinelli (Chairman), Foreign-Trade Zones 
Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; John F. Nelson, 
District Director, U.S. Customs Service, North Central Region, 6th Floor, 
Plaza Nine Bldg., 55 Erieview Plaza, Cleveland, OH 44114; and Colonel Robert
L. Oliver, District Engineer, U.S. Army Engineer District Louisville, P.O. 
Box 59, Louisville, KY 40201. 
   Comments concerning the proposed subzone are invited in writing from 
interested parties. They should be addressed to the Board's Executive 
Secretary at the address below and postmarked on or before September 18, 

   A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of
the following locations:
