    i have both rain and simpson. rain is a bit wider at the toe. i agree that the simpson is similarly shaped to the 348. but i take 1/2 size larger in simpson than in 348. and even at that simpson was a bit snug in the toe for me.

    Well, the boots are Eur 360 (ex-VAT), and Eur 50 shipping for a total of Eur 410 or about $530.
    The vultures will hit me with duty on $530 which would work out to be about $200-250....!
    2 years ago, when my Cottesmores came in from Pediwear, I paid almost $275 in duty!!

    duties in India are outrageous in general.

    i understand the concept of protecting local labor but taken to extreme it's crippling.

    Believe me, crippling is an understatement...beheading is more appropriate..

    Didn't realize the duty was so high for clothing and shoes. Thought for some reason it was exclusive to electronics

    Yeah they do. This model was on display at SFx10. Looks even better in person. Even on a table full of shell, this shoe caught my attention
