If we could get three we can use the infill system to restock, but the make up needs to be three pairs exactly like that make up. Same width too.

Sorry - 30-35% increase.
 
I'm showing shoe prices were mid 800s to 900s from 2013-late 2014. (checked some old GMTOs to confirm)

Current prices are at ~1150.

Part of why they were so cheap for a bit was the weak SEK. We all benefitted greatly from that if i recall correctly.

I think it was more of the price adjustment Skoak had to do because of other US retailers complaining.

It is what it is then. Stocks and housing values are also up

Not that it matters (because it is what it is), I don't think you're all that correct.  After a minute or two of searching this forum, there was a 25% price increase around March of last year because the pound to SEK was crazy. That gets you from around 850 to around 1050.

 

There was also the episode with the minimum retail pricing, but that was separate, and related to Carmina, St. Crispin, and Edward Green. (You should know, you commented,

What, do shoes get cheaper when the stock market goes down?

 

 

LOL not sure why people are on me about this. You might not like the price increases, but it is a fact.

Also these are luxury goods...the non SFers who buy G&G don't really care about the price!

We did have a few months last year where currency exchange rates made our prices deviate much more than we would have liked from the RRPs and we had to do something about that. And G&G had nothing to do with that. It was just bad business to buy at a high rate and sell at a low.

didn't mean to derail the thread.  I often forget that not everything travels well over a box of text. But hey, don't think you'll find anyone here happy about the increase. I think the chaps at Skoak have done a great job at bringing some great value brands to us with their service as added value.

 

Let's get back to shoes.
