Don't know about stores on the continent but Carmina is based in the Eurozone.

Edit: Sorry, missed that this is the G&G thread. Go with Skoaktiebolaget, as suggested by others.

Skoati in Sweden might be your best bet. Cheapest prices Ive seen online.

We have a selection of G&G: www.skoaktiebolaget.se.

We trade in SEK (Swedish Krona) that has actually taken an even larger hit than the Euro. Good news for all yanks!

Who really needs a pinky toe, anyhow?

Exactly! Plus, I've heard it has a nice slimming effect on the foot AND you get one of those very stylish handicap tags.

I can take care of those toes for you guys. I'm specializing in Foot/Ankle surgery, but a major part of my study has been proper fit of feet in shoes for people of both pathologic and non-pathologic types. You just have to fly over to the Philadelphia area. 

I'm thinking about doing some research in surgical techniques to help people fit into their favorite shoes. I think i will be able to remove the 5th toe and suture it in a way that it will heal like it was never there. I'm sure many of your guys would love to have that. haha

GMTOs anyone? Cross-post from Skoaktiebolaget thread. Prices are cheap for now. Who knows when currency exchange rate will get worse and the next GG price increase will be.


Burnham / Vintage Oak / TG73 / Single Leather Sole ~$1239. The price has dropped around $150 since the initial posting and I think it would be a great boot for the spring.

Probably $872 given today's exchange rate without shoe trees.

I believe you need 5 of same width then 6th+ can be different width.

As Ironist said, the way Skoak does it, you need the first 5 committed to order the same width to get any GMTO on the books. Then they open it up to others to add to the GMTO order, only at this point can someone order a wider width.

That is my problem, as a G width gent, i must sit on the bench on all GMTOs and wait to be called as the 6th man...

You heard the man; he needs our help! Let's seriously do this.

All the above look great. But I would also love to do a deco. Any takers?
