All fees and customs will be included in the price for the U.S. store. The price listed will be the final price you as a customer will pay.

Correct, thank you sir!

Shipping will be free in the U.S. Store. I don't know if you noticed but we now offer free shipping for any order over 1500 SEK to the U.S. The shoes are still being shipped from Sweden though.

That's a deal. The best deal I ever made. It's about a 1000 pairs each year and growing. I'll be in touch soon, you may want to quit your day job. God bless America! smile.gif

The most fair option would be to split the cost, yes.

The gmto becomes cost effective over indiv. mto only if 4 or more people join...

EDIT: I want to use this example to teach my daughter arithmetic someday! she'll probably hate it.

Nope. Heavy design modifications on an existing pattern incurs a 30% surcharge. Creating a completely new pattern is 4000 SEK. On the other hand you can create any style you want then.

There are seams where there shouldn't be. Depends if that bothers you or not.

The benefits of working from home. Wouldn't even need to quit... would just need a Skoak FedEx account and a nice bookcase/storage solution so my place doesn't look awful despite storing what sounds like 250 pairs shoes/mo happy.gif

Ah OK. Do we get guarantees the pattern with never be replicated without surcharge? Kinda like a limited edition boot?... (i'm only half kidding :)  )

 

I hope our search for a bonafe apron toe boot isn't getting annoying!

The rubber sole kills it for me. If they were in a leather sole I would have kopped a pair. It's a great price.

Yeah I don't get why you'd want a rubber sole on alligator that is very sensitive to water.

You would think that an animal that spends its life in a swamp would be waterproof wouldn't you?

I only bring it up because the other day I had to buy a new strap for my watch. I purchased a crocodile one and the saleswoman told me to that I had to be careful with exposure to water even when washing my hands. Since it was from a luxury brand that deals with a lot of briefcases and leather accessories I was inclined to take her word for it.

It's not like a cow would start leaking after a few hours in water. A dead cow though...

post #16650 of 23674

Yes please don't, it makes me want to puke every time I hear... "FedEx oh god, I got dinged $30"...  ...  Please......
