Thanks, kind of hoping I might still have a chance that my pair have finally made it as well.

@tifosi and I were just discussing a serious matter! My wife has been angling for a live-in au pair. I have been resistant to this...however, if I were to get a Swedish resident, could she then order shoes from you without any shipping issues given her residency? Or would I then have to pay VAT as a result? Please help :)

I think we all need to realign our priorities here. I love shoes as much as the next guy...but Swedish au pair? Don't bury the lead!

I had a pair of GGs that were too narrow (in their F width) and also had a pronounced gap at the instep.  If the width area is fine or a little sung then I say it will all stretch and you should keep them.  If you feel like it is considerably tight in the width and also in the instep I would do what I could to get rid of them.  It will save you a lot of agony--financial, physical, and emotional.  

 

I decided to wear mine anyway and while they did (painfully) stretch over time, I would have been better off finding a better fitting shoe.  

 

PM me if you would like more details.

Sorry, thats not going to work very well for you... If she receives the shoes in Sweden (or anywhere within the EU), then you will have to pay 25% VAT on every purchase (which is what every Swede does). If she buys them from anywhere outside the EU, then she will not be subject to VAT, but she will then have to pay the same price as yourself. 

 

The best thing would however be if the au-pair started a Swedish company and let the company buy your shoes, then in certain situations she wouldn't have to pay VAT (which basically is what you lucky bastards outside the EU are doing right now). Problem solved! :nodding:

For those of you who missed out on the Adelaides in polo suede, this is not a poor second choice.

Just heard my nightshade Dovers have arrived and are on their way to me. Never thought I liked split toes but this will make two of them in my closet, so I guess that's changed.



Much thanks to Gabriel who was helped me settle on nightshade as the color I wanted.

The answer is your wife will divorce you when she finds out you are xxing the hot au pair.
