Isn't the link is for securing the stock which will arrive Sweden this month? I don't think it is a pull order

Yes that is correct, we have incoming stock, it will be available August 22. We already had a few orders and some sizes already out of stock, so if you want to secure your size, please order ASAP.

Definitely some of the best service I've received was from these guys.

@leaves Any news on this: Carmina model 80267, Plain Cap Toe in Brown Museum Calf, Inca last.

Still due for August? ;-)

Placed my first order with Skoaktiebolaget. Can't wait to get my 5th pair of Carminas!

Leaves (or anyone else who wants to weigh in),

How often do recommend conditioning Carmina calf? I have two pairs in calf that are lightly worn (less than twice a month on average I'd say). Just wanting to make sure the leather stays in good shape given the relatively little use they receive. Also what product would you recommend using?

Thanks so much!
Eric

Have you seen the shoe care thread? Good info there.

I use Lexol for calf, but venetian shoe cream (VSC) seems to work well for others. Saphir products tend to be really good as well.

Just brush and buff them with each wear and use shoe trees.

I've been using GlenKaren products on my Carmina calf shoes for the past 6? months with good results. Each shoe has seen cleaning with the Cleaner/Conditioner once and polished every other month or so using the cream polish. The toes get the high shine paste for a mirror shine. The shoes see wear every other week or so.

GlenKaren has probably THE best cleaner on the market imo

For conditioning without color removal, I reach for Saphir crème delicate

   patrik . . . . if this policy will affect the remaining balance of my g&g mto I have with you, I would like to send final payment.

I wouldn't think so... That wouldn't make sense since they sent you a contract with the cost when you ordered. There's a whole market to help protect against this sort of thing too.

Thanks for the suggestions. Not really so worried about cleaning as much as making sure the leather isn't drying out. Plan to keep these puppies a long time. And in terms of shoe trees, but of course!
