Now just to think of a model that would be appropriate....

Its a shame now that the Carmina US site is live that the prices have been "adjusted".

It is approximately a 20% increase in cost to me.

I like where this is going. On 946 last? Anybody else interested to join? Bonafe needs only three participants for GMTO...

Sounds ok. I have an Enzo GMTO on the way but that is my first. I am okay to go with 946.

The new US site has been discussed for over a month now in this thread. While there is a price increase, the new prices also include shipping and customs fees. The price increase is minor blah, blah, blah. Please read the thread...

Another way to look at it is Enzo Bonafe used to be ~54% more expensive than Carmina. Now they are 17% more expensive. biggrin.gif

Apologies, this was a faux pas on my part.

I was referring to the Carmina ecommerce site, not Skoak.

This post was also meant for the Carmina thread.

I am extremely familiar with the discussion in this thread on the global economy and not shorting the US retailers, etc etc... Yawn.

The Skoak guys are rightly doing what they are told by their supplier.

Please read his post. He specifically mentioned the Carmina US site. 

 

Edit: Wait....Skoak now has a US site and now everything is more expensive??

Agreed. My initial thought was to cringe at the pricing hike, but it is exceedingly reasonable once actually analyzed.

(Please say yes smile.gif )

I emailed Skoak this weekend with the exact same question. And the answer was Yes. Order has been sent to G&G. Delivery in 4 to 5 months. Life's good!

Yes, that's the standard conversion. My own experience:

946, 7.5F (std width): fits great, tad tight in toe box...prefer 7G

Rain, 7.5EE (std width): width is good, shoe is a bit long...prefer 7EEE

My foot: wide and high instep
