For Carminas that were in stock before the price changes at the end of February, what changed exactly? For example, were base Carmina models 2,800 SEK and now they're 2,880 SEK? This is just a curiosity thing for me (10 USD isn't any sort of deal breaker for me). Thanks.

think Carmina was only upped a very small single digit percentage, but it fluctuates everyday based upon the $.

The swedish central bank recently lowered their interest rates, but i think it's about as far as it will go before it appreciates.

Anyway, I digress. Don't suppose you size down for the Rain? How does it feel/fit compare to say the AS 724 that we both know?

So the 724 toe is narrower, higher instep and similar heel, all marginally for the AS 724 compare to Rain, both the same size.

Thanks wurger. Lower instep for Rain is good news. My 724 has some heel slip & toe area a bit tight. Seems you have more overall room in the Rain then but still fits reasonably well..

Toe room is about comfort and pain, it's the instep and heel that matters for holding the foot inside the shoe..

Agree. Thanks for taking the effort to wear them today and giving me your thoughts so quickly. Fingers crossed still!

300 SEK is a flat rate for any order below 8000 SEK ex VAT, or you can have them sent by FedEx Priority for a few bucks more. Shipping for any order above 8000 SEK is free of charge for North America.

Delapre is really really soft and supple. Color is pretty dark in most lights which is exactly what I wanted.

Specs are:
Racing Green Delapre / Black Willow
F82
Flat Welt
Single Dainite

Thank you Steven, always a pleasure. Now, you need to start thinking about green sharkskin EB boots! smile.gif

Fits really well, but not us good as G&G lasted trees.

Yes, Veldt. Double Ridgeway (double is always standard for any EG shoe except for the R1 sole).

They do offer shoe trees, and they look quite nice, they are 800 SEK ex VAT. Justin, I think you mean lasted EB trees are not available. They are not for ready-to-wear or normal MTO, but if you go the bespoke route, then lasted trees can be ordered.

Consider our super light weight travel shoe trees if weight is an issue:

We rolled out a small price adjustment March 1st. Please email us for fitting advise.

Thanks, Leaves. Is there a notification list available for these? In that case, I'd like to be added to it. Also I'd you don't mind, how many of each size have you ordered? Thanks.
