    Wow, great service, fast shipping and great prices. Since I live in Europe maybe it will take even faster for me if I order a pair. And you are happy with the shoes, no complain what so ever?

    A little off topic, but which Carmina retail store is closest to Malaga? Sadly I'm not having a vacation in Northern Spain, but I might take a daytrip to Madrid by train, takes 2 and a half our each way.

    Hmm that's what I thought maybe it was a typo she told me 30% LOL!!!

    Going to pull the trigger on some cap toe half brogues on alcudia if I can figure out goddam sizing.

    Interesting. When I got mine a couple of months ago she quoted 20%. Btw, at the SFx10 event, I asked Mike Epaulet about the alcudia and even he didnt know how it fit. Why are you set on alcudia? rain is similar and much, much more accesible

    Alcudia is the same as Simpson except with an almond toe. Hope that helps

    From my experience, Alcudia fits tts. I'm a 7.5us and size 6.5 in the Alcudia fits me perfectly. A few notes: it's definitely narrow in the heel, somewhat narrow in the lacing/instep area, and about medium width in the toe box area.

    I have an MTO pair that is maybe a week or so away from completion. :D

    Oh, and everything I've heard has always been 30%. That 20% you mentioned would be news to me.
