    I can't really say why, but to me they look a little too tight. I don't know if I'm right or not, but how is the fit?

    I like my shoes on the tight side, and they tend to expand so I think they will fit great!

    From the Carmina website: "
    From October 1st the prices of our products will be bring up to date.
    MTO´S will have a 50 % increase on the retail prices.
    "

    This makes it sound like prices are going up across the board; MTO is certainly more expensive!

    First side.

    ...so if a shoe retails for 400 euro they will charge 200 euro for MTO? That is a crazy increase.

    I you go to the Carmina home page (the one that links to the Carmina site and the e-boutique), and you click on the link to the e-boutique, this pop-up appears.

    During my last visit to the Paris shop in August the MTO 50% pricepoint was the already the case, sadly.

    Any word on regular pricing? What about changes in prices through third party stores?

    Thanks for the encouragement! Yeah there's been a lot of adaptation to Scandinavian climate; many of the models we have brought in this fall will be with on the Carmina York sole, which is a leather/rubber hybrid sole. We also have quite a lot of Dainite and double leather sole shoes and boots. Here are a few goodies. We launch the website on Monday (Oct 1) hopefully, we're working around the clock to shoot all the shoes. :)

    Please, make sure it is launched Oct 1st!

    I'm travelling to Barcelona for El Clasico next weekend and, knowing myself, are likely to stock up on a couple of pairs. Would then prefer to be able to see your range upfront since I rather buy Carminas adapted to the Stockholm climate than ever so beutiful leather soled ones in Spain. In my current collection of some 20 pairs of good shoes only one pair has dainite...
    If I come home with two-three pairs from Barcelona I will have a hard time justifying buying more pairs from you this Autumn...

    And, besides that, I prefer supporting your initiative on bringing good shoes to us swedes, especially since the pricing is very close to the Spain pricing.

    Of course we'll set up for you to visit the store before it opens and pick up a few Carminas in Stockholm so you won't have to haul them back from Catalonia. I'll PM you the number and e-mail for our store manager, I'm actually away next week.

    It's the 'We don't want to be in the MTO business sort of markup'.

    I wonder what an "up to date" price is... I'm guessing around 500-550 for calf. RIP Carmina as the best bargain in high end shoes [​IMG]
