Cost will be the same man there isn't much saving you may save 50$ if that tops.

Feel free to be vague (money talk can be seen as tacky) but is there a benefit cost wise to purchasing in store rather than on Skoak's site?

Might force me to use some of my ungodly amount of vacation lol

Well if the prices on the international site includes VAT, one can assume there should be a refund when departing Sweden for non-EU customers.

Wait wait wait, do Skoak's prices NOT include VAT?!?

I was (perhaps mistakenly) under the impression their prices now includes the whole shebang (shipping, duties, VAT, etc). I'd LOVE to hear this is not the case!

Edit: my mistake. I thought you were referring to the US site...

not the full VAT though, at least wasn't the case for UK back in 2011, 20% VAT refund end up like 13~15% refund (some fee are fixed then some other random fee)? If you have it ship to the US then it's full VAT refund, though you have to pay shipping (never bought from Skoab so I don't know if they charge shipping)? and potentially custom in the US

If a person goes to main store & buy the shoe they will pay same price for Saint crispin that is on there international site. But this price does not include custom charges that will be tacked upon automatically via FedEx & up charge fee for extra material or custom last. At the end the difference is still there buying at there store vs buying online but it's not very drastic but saving is saving. I may be wrong may be gent above know some thing that I don't but feel free to share.

Anyone have experience getting an adjustment on their lasts up to 5mm? I'm looking to add 2mm to "fit 5" in the photo below. This is having already added 3mm.

Slightly worried this will throw off proportions between the left and right shoe (or just the look of the right shoe on balance), but that extra 2mm would be nice to ease the break-in period.

At the moment, my StCs are OK after about two dozen wears. The first dozen are a bit rough though. And still after about two dozen wears, the right corner on the right shoe is a little tight after a full day's worth of walking. I assume things will be fine after another dozen wears, but it's an annoying process to have to go through.

Would be nice to add the 2mm to ease the break-in process, but also don't want to distort the look of my shoes.

Anyone with experience adding this much space to their lasts?

Are you on a G width or an F width?

I added the full 2mm to fit 5 on both sides of my personalize last, I believe. It was much better than just the G width. My original pairs on just the G last were tight for nearly a year. Now they're fine, but that was a long process. I'm honestly not sure what changed more, the shoes or my feet! Everything after the personalized last, with the extra fittings is much more comfortable out of the box. If you're unsure about doing it to just one side, I recommend emailing Philip directly.

I have a G width coming in with an additional 6mm at fitting point 5. Will let you know if it looks weird when I get it. To be fair, it may look weird because I have obscenely wide feet.

I added 3mm on mine and they're mostly fine after two dozen wears. Really could probably live with it, but it would be nice to have these not uncomfortably tight for so long.

3mm is noticeable though, esp if you only get it done to one of the shoes. Which is why I'm hesitating to add 2mm more.

You might feel that it's noticeable, but I'm certain that no one else will. Not sure how much I had added on mine. It's a f width width because I need that width for my arch, but with quite some added to fit 5.

It had enough space from day 1, and have been very pleased with it.
Try to add the 2 for a more casual pair, and see if you like it?
