Custom tax on shoes

my friends wants to send a pair of brand new adidas shoes by courier from dubai.I looked into custom tariff but it was very confusing with all the categories for example:- shoes with rubber sole,made from synthetic material and more.what if my shoes falls in every category?or there is a basic tax for all kinds of shoes?
how will custom authority will calculate the tax when they dont know the actual cost?someone told me the sender will mention the cost,so can he write any price he want and it will be calculated on that?

Regrettably, we don’t handle personal shipments. as a personal advice, I’d recommend buying them locally, a single pair will cost much a lot than you will pay locally.
