    Thanks everyone, the Forest last fits me great. I'll be looking forward to see how the cordovan will age.

    We charge a 40% surcharge for Carmina MTO. Carmina actually charge us 50% extra but MTO is an important part of our business and we decided to lower our margins, hopefully making Carmina MTO more available to a wider audience. Typically, these are our prices (DEC 2012, price increase expected JAN 2013).

    Carmina shoes (all lasts except Inca) READY TO WEAR - 3400 SEK (2720 SEK ex VAT)
    Carmina shoes (all lasts except Inca) MTO - 4800 SEK (3840 SEK ex VAT)

    Carmina boots (all lasts except Inca) READY TO WEAR - 3600 SEK (2880 SEK ex VAT)
    Carmina boots (all lasts except Inca) MTO - 5000 SEK (4000 SEK ex VAT)

    Carmina Cordovan shoes READY TO WEAR – 5400 SEK (4320 SEK ex VAT)
    Carmina Cordovan shoes MTO – 7500 SEK (6000 SEK ex VAT)

    Carmina Cordovan boots READY TO WEAR – 5800 SEK (4640 SEK ex VAT)
    Carmina Cordovan boots MTO – 8000 SEK (6400 SEK ex VAT)

    If you read the attached table, you will see that the prices in the left-hand side columns are for stock shoes, whereas the prices in the right-hand side columns are for MTO shoes.

    Those look like the Anderson jumper boot. By the way, if it's NewYorkRanger, then the answer to your question is always yes [​IMG]

    Detroit is the only last I don't know much about...how does it compare to Inca and Rain...I have heard it is way more generous and whatever your size in Rain Last, you should size down by a half for a good fit. I have my eye on some chromexcel shoes on detroit last at SKAB.

    Guys I have very flat and short feet; they usually bulge out the sides because the sole width of the waist is not enough for my extremely flat feet. Yet when I size up to accommodate this they are just too long. What last would you recommend for this? (if Carmina has none maybe another company?)
