    Not my pic. I am asking whether anyone can identify the last. Both pics were from Carmina's instagram.

    Both pics? or just the bottom?

    Well, I guess maybe I'll ask him what last they are, since nobody else can identify.

    Pretty sure you can find the original post in the Epaulet thread, just by going through the thread image gallery.

    I want to share my fabulous experience ordering shoes from the Carmina store in Spain. I was surfing the Carmina site last week and found some shoes that I could not resist. I ordered them last Wednesday (first time order) and they arrived today. Wow, spectacular shoes and service. Very reasonable shipping charge and no extra broker custom fees[​IMG]

    Congrats on the purchase! Your duties bill might come a few weeks later, though.

    I sure hope you're kidding! Right????
    I purchase some trousers from Italy a few weeks ago. They shipped UPS (I despise UPS [​IMG]) and when they arrived the agent asked for an extra $86 for broker fees??. [​IMG]
    I was shocked. Never happened before.

    When I've ordered directly from Carmina it's been hit or miss on duties. If they were shipped FedEx or UPS I usually got a bill in the mail later. If they were shipped DHL then I did not receive a duty bill.

    Same here - never got any bill when it comes from DHL, but always got a bill when it comes from Fedex, or billed on the spot upon shipment when it comes from UPS.

    I've gotten a bill from DHL 4+ weeks after delivery but 2 weeks is the normal time frame.
    DHL is more hit or miss than Fedex as to whether you'll get billed.

    I think posters had mentioned 5% duty fee is a good estimate?
