This exact one will run about that much, but knowing your preference for the Simpson last, you might want to check out this link for the Carmina e-boutique. They have the Simpson last equivalent for about $650 shipped after the VAT deduction. Lots of sizes still available.
+1 - I picked up this shoe directly from Carmina a couple months back. If you like the Simpson last then this is the way to go.post #5480 of 167408/4/13 at 10:11ampost #5481 of 167408/4/13 at 6:23pmpost #5482 of 167408/4/13 at 6:26pmpost #5483 of 167408/4/13 at 6:30pmpost #5484 of 167408/4/13 at 6:35pmpost #5485 of 167408/4/13 at 6:40pmpost #5486 of 167408/5/13 at 11:16ampost #5487 of 167408/6/13 at 3:13ampost #5488 of 167408/6/13 at 3:39am
I've only used Carmina trees on my Carmina shoes but the LCA Perfecta Beechwood trees from the Hanger Project would work nicely (I am using a couple of those on other shoes). They are a bit pricey though...post #5489 of 167408/6/13 at 5:43amQuote:
I'm using saphir size 7uk trees from A Fine Pair of Shoes in carmina 8uk (rain and forest) and 8.5uk (simspon) with no issues.
Could the fit be better? Probably, maybe. Do I think it matters? Not at all.
