They are even more amazing in person! Went into the store tonight to look around a bit, and they were surprisingly light. Really wish they came in my size :(

@leaves are the Skoaktiebolaget travel shoe trees hollowed out like St Cripsin's? Or are they solid and only 50% lighter in weight because of the use of super light obeche wood?

Anyone else know?

They are not hollow (same design as their other trees) but they are insanely light

Since I see many "waiting list" options, have to assume that there has been a flurry of buying in advance of the US site switch?

Hi guys,

Am trying to gauge interest in the following makeup. 

 

Carmina tanker boot (pictured here)

 

Soller last

Victory or Dainite soles

 

Brown chromexcel (pictured here)

 

Anyone interested?

The waiting list is just an automated version of our old waiting list, it does not allow pre-orders.

Question for the Skoak guys. What do you look for when you decide to carry a brand? Not to single out a specific brand, but why the brands you currently carry and not something like Vass, Corthay, Bestetti, other good shoes etc. Any insight appreciated.

Ah, thanks. I have been wondering the same.

Good question. Obviously, there are a number of factors that are strictly business related. But there's a lot of gut feeling involved too. Also, I prefer to work with smaller, family owned businesses or entrepreneurial driven companies. I don’t believe in adding every single brand I like, I prefer to build up a close working relationship with the manufacturers I’ve decided to offer in our store and this would not be possible if we added too many brands.

Would love to see you guys carry Bestetti or Meccariello's RTW stuff he does for the Japanese market.

great answer and I love how you gradually add other brands like the phenomenal choice in St. Crispin's!!!!

You won't find this helpful, but I'd be REALLY interested in a brown chromexcel jumper boot.  Oscar last, victory sole, BOOM.
