They're not built to be an online shop. At least not yet. The site was meant to show what models they have in the store, not for us to browse the inventory. Leaves has been getting tons of business from SF though so maybe he will eventually have a live inventory update. That would be nice.

 

Then again, this does have a way of making you consult Patrik about the sizes on each last. And if you don't know your size, that's a good thing as it puts a speedbump in the way of an impulse buy when you don't know your size (which is something Patrik can help with).

 

I had to send mine back when I refused to believe sizing down on Uetam was a good idea (and I wasn't a fan of the tassel loafer on my foot) and it cost me $70.

Saying that I should add that I was one of the customers on the Oscar boot last year (finally picked them up from my friend in Hong Kong recently) and I only have good things to say about the customer service at Skoaktie (in particularly there was a problem with my Paypal payment that they worked to get sorted) so if there a shoe you are interested in just contact them.

ahh I c! thanks

I just bought that black punched captoe on the Armoury last. Fingers crossed that it fits!

its actually the opposite, Asians tend to have shorter and wider feet.

Leaves, for the group MTOs, is it possible to have a double sole option if the other participants are single sole? Or will this take that pair out of the group MTO status?

This has not been a model we have done for anyone. Sounds nice though.

Nope, this is not possible.

Everyone will be drunk on moonshine and schnapps. The girls will have seven different kinds of flowers in their hair. The men will put on their Sunday’s finest. We will dance and jump around a giant phallus like crazy people. Grandma, grandpa, siblings, the in-laws, uncles, aunts and that cousin with a lazy eye will be there, and the Old Gods will be watching over us all. There will be bryggdans, små grodorna, sill, knäckebröd, hembränt, Västerbottenpaj, folköl and a lot of other stuff that you won’t be able to pronounce (just like Skoaktiebolaget). In short it is Midsommar in Sweden and we will be celebrating like pagans, closing shop from Friday 21th open up on Monday the 24th, very hung over. Glad Midsommar!

Personally I think dying in battle sounds highly overrated, although if that's what it takes to go to Valhalla, then sharpen my axe.... cheers.gif

Leaves--

 

Is this the color of the Antiqued Tanned Grain Jumper you are getting in the Fall?  Looks amazing if it is...
