    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    It is indeed the Forest last. The price without the MTO fee is 2,720 SEK excl. VAT. This particular order has a single Dainite sole, but there are other options if you want a rubber sole, such as the Tomir sole:

    Thanks for the heads up. I was waiting for free shipping like they had over Christmas, but this may have to be good enough!

    That's just roughly 27 bucks. Not really a big saving when shoes are $450 +

    Aren't they all small and tall sizes only? I think that sale has been happening for the past few months in an attempt to unload uncommon sizes.

    How similar is Carmina's cognac compared to Alden's cigar?

    Are they pretty much the same shade?

    Carmina cognac has massive variation from batch to batch.
    In general it's probably more Ravello-ish.

    Agreed. I received a pair of Long Wings about a month ago and they are definitely closer to Ravello than Cigar. I was expecting Cigar when I originally ordered but color is actually very close to this: http://leathersoulhawaii.com/2010/07/23/alden-shoes-ravello-shortwing-lsw/
