@Leaves
The tanker boot page mentions they have "silver rubber soles", I'm assuming this was an auto correct for victory sole?

If Skoak is still offering USPS that is the best method (for avoiding fees). I believe that option is going away soon if it hasn't already so contact Skoak.

I was only charged about $24 in duties/handling fee by FedEx for a pair of Carmina shoes, less than the extra cost of USPS shipping (300 SEK ~ 35 USD) and considerably faster. USPS becomes advantageous for more expensive orders, of course.

Agreed.  FedEx charged me $25 for a pair of Carmina shoes last week and $27 for a pair of boots this week.

Finally got a pair. Carmina semi-brogue, glad I saw they were on sale when I did.

Hey y'all I got a little question.

 

Is this boot in the 3751 model or the 2475mod? As skoaktiebolaget's FB also has this in the latter.

Almost there people. It appears as we only need 1 more confirmed E and we'll also need to make a final decision on the sole soonas well.

 

Specs:
Price: ~ 8800 SEK ex-vat or over? (kudu upcharge?)
Model: Isham

Color: Rosewood Kudu
Last: MH71
Sole: Double Leather Oak Bark Sole or Double Dainite still to be determined (Only one @daizawaguy against Dainite)
 

@justinkapur Depends on stifness of material Dainite

@harki E Dainite

@dddrees E Dainite

@mw313 narrow Double Leather

@grc1 E Dainite

@whyriver E Dainite

@daizawaguy E Double Leather

@JubeiSpiegel Double Leather

@bumblebee E Dainite

I think leather sole would be a nice change. In terms of size you know I'm super narrow for the count.

If push came to shove I would go with a Double Leather sole,​ unfortunately it appears that @grc1 would want sunken metal toe plates with that option. To be honest I think that would be almost as hard to sell if not harder than Dainite is to sell to people who prefer leather.

Metal Toe taps are an Ala carte option, so he can have his toe taps regardless. I would prefer double leather soles as well..,
