    Why is the selection on Carminas site so limited? I am itching to order something on the Simpson last since it is closest to the CJ 348 I believe, but there are only a few Simpsons on the site. Major bummer.

    I'm disappointed by the modest number online in the Simpson last too. They do seem to have been expanding what's offered though.

    Do they do a July (or other month) sale? Any idea what the discounts might look like during sale season?

    THey don't keep a lot of stock. If you want something specific, you'll have to go custom order.

    The photo in your post does not match the shoe you link to. Totally different lasts.

    It MIGHT be special order. They keep more makeups in stock than they offer online.

    Email them to see.

    It's sorta confusing that they show all of the possible colors on the webpage - even though they don't offer those colors in stock.

    Seems like it is something just under 16% based on the price I paid. Shoes were € 275 excluding tax vs.€ 325 with tax.


    Considering the speed with which the shoes arrived, in which I am including not only the DHL service, but the time Carmina took to process and pack the order, I was thoroughly pleased. Arrived at least as fast, if not faster than any domestic packages I get.

    And € 40 is considerably cheaper, though also considerably less fun, than flying to Palma or Paris.

    Sale info would be nice to know about.

    Also, I think I recall reading that Epaulet will be offering some Carminas on the Simpson in it's next few batches. Don't recall the specifics, so there's no saying it will be anything you are interested in, but if you send them a message I'm sure they'll fill you in.

    +1 on the VAT info.

    Regarding shipping, one thing I noticed when ordering through website vs. ordering MTO is that it was a little cheaper (around 33 euro for one pair) going through the MTO route.
