I've seen the Simpson in person and the toe cap is quite narrow. Reminds me C&J 348 last. Too pointy for me. My guess is that the Rain is wider. Also, I thought Alcudia is like Simpson, not rain.
i have both rain and simpson. rain is a bit wider at the toe. i agree that the simpson is similarly shaped to the 348. but i take 1/2 size larger in simpson than in 348. and even at that simpson was a bit snug in the toe for me.
Well, the boots are Eur 360 (ex-VAT), and Eur 50 shipping for a total of Eur 410 or about $530.
The vultures will hit me with duty on $530 which would work out to be about $200-250....!
2 years ago, when my Cottesmores came in from Pediwear, I paid almost $275 in duty!!
