    I ordered a walkton from skoak when they were on sale.

    No custom charges or issues at all... Really quick dispatch and took only a few days to arrive.

    Good to know thanks.

    I am hoping to receive my thorpes before this coming weekend but opted for the free delivery which is 4-5 days. On a side note I have so far received excellent service from Gabriel - he even emailed me tonight which is very much appreciated. I am therefore hopeful for quick dispatch and the rest is down to fed-ex.

    Fingers crossed.

    Internet wisdom!

    This has not been my experience as I showed in photos earlier though it is difficult to prove otherwise as there could be many factors influencing the size issue - sole, lasting and other small factors in finishing. Best to gather as much information from advice and keep the return option open is my advice.

    The guys at Skoatie offer a fine service and are highly recommended.

    This was before the launch of the US website. Any new order will be shipped with FedEx and all customs fees are included in the price.


    Shipping to the UK is completely customs free - because both the UK and Sweden are part of the European Union.

    Hello guys - just got a letter from Dean - we have been able to secure a small batch of Oak Kudu. Initially we thought we could make about 40 pairs but unfortunately a lot of the Kudu hides were in pretty bad shape so about half was deemed by G&G as not suitable for making shoes by their standards. So we're looking at a limited run here for about 20 pairs.

    This is how Oak Kudu looks like (Vintage Oak in the background):

    Let me know your thoughts for GMTOs or single MTOs! :D

    What about a Montand II?

    One of my most comfortable G&Gs and certainly my favourites.

    I was sorry to hear of your issue however, as you say it does sound like a finishing/manufacture issue rather than sizing issue.

    Hope you manage to get it sorted because they are lovely shoes.

    They do indeed provide a good service. Already dispatched and on their way to me.

    Glad to hear you finally received your Thorpes.

    Yeah I got my St James II in Tan Kudu and Vintage Cedar to late to take any good pictures, so I'll have to try and get those up tomorrow as well.
