    Hello everyone,

    It is very exciting for us at Svenska Skoaktiebolaget www.skoaktiebolaget.se to finally be an Official Affiliate Sponsor and I’m going to kick off this thread by giving those of you who do not know of us a little background about our store and our vision.

    Skoaktiebolaget is a store dedicated to men’s shoes! Our brick and mortar store is in Stockholm, Sweden. We also have an increasingly popular mail order service through www.skoaktiebolaget.se. Our store opened in October 2012 and our vision is to become a leading retailer for exclusive men’s shoes. We hope to achieve this by providing the world’s most beautiful shoes and the best possible customer service.

    Our brands include Mallorca-based Carmina Shoemaker, modern artisans Gaziano & Girling and Italian master craftsman Enzo Bonafé alongside Austro-Transylvanian Saint Crispin's and Portuguese Carlos Santos. Our artisans are flanked by shoe care products from Burgol, a Swiss family business, elegant socks from Sozzi, a Milanese company celebrating 100 years in business, shoe horns and brushes from Abbeyhornand a large selection of accessories from Rubinacci. All our products have been carefully considered and selected, and we truly believe they are among the best on the market.

    Me and my team will be helping as best as we can, in this thread and in the other related threads, about sizing, fitting and general questions. Feel free to post your questions here or email [email protected].

    I want to give props to Svenska Skoaktiebolaget , I had been looking for a pair of Carmina Brown Suede Chukka boots for sometime and when I reached out to Adam he informed me they were sold out but would restock in February. I received an email from him a few weeks ago that they were restocked and I ordered a pair on February 19th. I live in California and had them in hand on February 25th. Easy peasy. Appreciated the service, that's what I call global service.

    Cross post from Carmina p0rn thread

    These are my new pickups from the folks at Skoaktiebolaget, they were a pleasure to deal with and I received the shoes in less than a week to the US from Stockholm.


    These pictures don't do these shoes justice what so ever. I own John Lobb, Edward Green, and Gaziano & Girling respectively, however for the price I don't believe there is anything that comes close to these shoes.


    Thanks guys

    Please excuse my crappy iphoto's

    Congratulations from a fellow swede! It's truly great to have such a nice store located in Sweden!

    I will also check the thread often to see if we could organize some group MTO's from Carmina! Can't wait!

    "Beginning in spring 2013 we will also be carrying Italian master craftsman Enzo Bonafé"

    This will be interesting!
