    I paid 50% plus shipping last time. So I think for this 1440 + 300 SEK. The latter is USPS which tends to avoid duties. Usually about a week shipping. FedEx costs are on their website (skoak). Slightly cheaper and faster but tends to incur duties too.

    Just confirmed with Gabriel. I'm correct about the 50% down plus shipping, then the balance when the shoes arrive. All charged in SEK on their end.

    We're close...this is going to be a great make-up, really great fall shoe.

    I think we have a 5th

    @ScottMC Just verify that what we've discussed is what you've had in mind. Thanks for jumping in. One more to go although I will try to get a few more. The more the merrier!

    We are definitely close. I'd like to get two more if possible, just to have a cushion.

    Glad to join this group, gentlemen. Here is a very close approximation of what the shoes will look like:

    Great to have you on board, Scott.

    Also, @ehult might be joining in too? Please confirm and thanks. Great to have you on board too.

    We have six! One of you (@southern-swede ) was going to give the lasts a try in the Barcelona store. ETA on when that will be?

    I'll try to round up one or two more in the next few days so we have a cushion, if that's ok with you all. I'll start the ball moving with Gabriel. Maybe have invoices sent out by the end of week or early next week at latest. Good?

    So, aside from the three just mentioned

    @JLnoir
    @cocopops
    @ScottMC

    Just to confirm details

    Polo Suede
    Rain Last
    Semi-brogue
    Dark brown edging
    Single sole

    I think only color of lining remains. I think green, brown (tan?) or red in this make-up (not purple). Thoughts? Not a deal breaker for me on this. Something nondescript!

    For the lining I think either brown (tan) would be fine or red or blue doesn't matter as long as it's not to crazy.

    We look to be at six, but a few more is always good to give us a cushion. I'll get the ball rolling with Gabriel and expect that we should have things finalized (invoices out) by early next week at latest.

    Post with questions, but this is a really good opportunity to get a basic staple suede shoe. I don't think Skoak has anything similar coming in the fall (at least based on their stock list page)

    Let me know as soon as you ascertain fit (or if it doesn't fit as then I will need to find a sixth). Good luck and enjoy.
