    Chukka, you say. What did you have in mind?

    because I just got 3 EG in past two months and participating in EB suede chukka and GG St James II pearl grey.

    If you guys are doing F width GMTO for staple St James in doak and grain chukka it's hard to resist.

    Update and reminder: I've emailed Skoaktiebolaget about moving this GMTO forward. There are five people, including me, interested, so it should be good to go. Further updates when I have news.

    Thinking either 74945 or 804 last with Millerighe sole. Just something super versatile in a darkish brown suede.

    I received my Skoak Carminas from FedEx today. My brother was the one at home who received the shoes. He said there was no customs fee. Is FedEx known to charge fees later? I have received customs fees from DHL one to two months later. Does FedEx do that?

    Interesting. I just did some research (5 minutes) and I got this from the FedEx website:

    How do I pay for duties and taxes if I do not have a FedEx account?
    If you, as the recipient, are the designated party for payment of duties and taxes and do not have a valid FedEx account number, or a FedEx account in good credit or standing, then payment will be collected by the FedEx courier at the time of delivery, in addition to a Reimbursement on Delivery (ROD) fee (see below). If the shipper or a third party is responsible for payment of duties and taxes and does not have a valid FedEx account number, or a FedEx account in good credit or standing, then the shipment will be held at the destination FedEx station until payment arrangements are made, or the FedEx Credit department has authorized release of the shipment.
    NOTE: You can avoid having your shipment held for payment of duties and taxes by opening a FedEx account with a credit card.

    I believe I am the recipient, I do not have a valid FedEx account number or a FedEx account in good credit or standing, and payment was not collected by the FedEx courier at the time of delivery. I'll argue this if I do get a bill.

    i got hit with a fedex bill once for 30% of the value of a pair of shoes (not from skoak). i said fuck that shit, im not paying. ignored first notice, ignored second notice, got hit with a late penalty, ignored that notice (duh). finally got a call from their collection agency threatening to report me. paid in 60 seconds

    Count on it, but it is only $30 or so nowadays for Carmina calfskin shoes.
