    The Carmina shops in Madrid generally have a sale on selected shoes after the Epiphany holiday (that will be Jan. 6th, 2012). I donĀ“t recall the nicer, high-end ones (eg, Cordovan) being on sale, but discounts on other models were about 10-20% last year.

    I stopped by the one in Paris last week on Ave L'Opera. Prices are 360 Euro for most calf shoes and 550 Euro for shell. They said they will have a sale in Jan and one possibly before Christmas, but not sure which shoes. Discounts around 20 to 30%.

    I hope they accept orders over email/phone and apply the discounts. After VAT deduction it's going to be such a steal.

    Worth another round of non-responsive emails.

    They won't deduct VAT if you place your order via phone or e-mail. You may ask for the forms, required for customs at the airport, which you will have to stamp by yourself.

    But they will reject to deduct VAT by themselves at the check out. It is applicable both to Spanish and Paris shops.

    Anyone know a Carmina online store? Also, what do you think of this model?:

    Epaulet Shop in Brooklyn is now carrying Carmina. You can order from their website.

    Why are the prices at the armoury and epaulet so much higher?

    Customer service, ease of purchase, special order shoes. I've heard people having so much difficulty ordering directly from Carmina.

    Is it not possible to order Carmina shoes over phone? So you can order shoes not displayed in their webstore?

    The sizing on their webstore is extremely confusing to me. They say a 46 European is equivalent to an 11.5 US and an 11 UK? Also, what size are they using? It's not indicated if they are sizing in US or UK.

    The only really comparable shoe is the chelseas. So, I checked.

    From Epaulet, shipped, the boots are $595

    Direct from Carmina, the boots are 338 EU + 40 EU shipping, or 378 EU, or $496. So, the savings is $100 or so. Plus tariffs.

    So, it all pretty much comes out in the wash.

    And the two lasts I've tried have been 'true to size' for my foot - meaning I most often take a UK 7 and the Carmina 7 in rain and simpson last both fit me well.

    Anybody having issues checking out on carminas e-boutique? Specifically it won't let me in to my cart after adding the items I wanted, it just re directs to the home page instead. I'm emailing them about it too but just thought would throw it out there. Tried on my iPad and a laptop.

    I have the same problem. There is probably a bug somewhere in its design. The overall presentation of the website just doesn't seem very professional to me.
