    I already have 6 pairs of carminas. They are a steal for the price and they are very elegant shoes. I haven't bought yet anything more expensive but I am really happy with them all.

    I also need to say that guys from Skoaktiebolaget are really helpful and kind. Everything arrived on time and was better than the pictures.

    I really like their collection and the fact that many of their shoes are offered with rubber soles on the contrary of carmina website where most of them are with leather soles. I find leather soles for everyday use a bit hard and slippery. But it's just my opinion.

    I am already eyeing at least another 5 pairs of their shoes but I am trying to be a bit restrained and keep my shoe passion on a leash. I will definitely be buying more shoes from them in the (very) near future.

    Their shock collection is also spot on. The 3 pairs I bought were of excellent quality and feel.

    Bravo gentlemen. Wish we had a store like yours in Greece and avoid all the crappy, very fashionable shoes we are offered for really high prices.

    Is there a wider Carmina last than a Forest in EEE/wide?

    Don't do that.

    This goes against everything this forum stands for.[​IMG]

    Thanks. I do not own any G&G so I cannot compare for you. The appeal of this model for me is the "rougher" stitching.
    I saw a heavy stitch shoe and asked if there was a boot option. Gabriel knew about the model and was very helpful in suggesting the 500 sole.

    Leaves,

    While we're on the subject of group MTO's, how much more would a burgundy museum calf Carmina U-wing go for on the rain last? I was thinking of a single leather sole rather than the leather/rubber sole combo you currently have on the brown U-wing. I'm assuming 6 people would be required for a group MTO and we'd have to put 50% down with the rest due upon arrival

    What's the chance of this coming back in UK 10.5? I almost don't want it to be in stock because I would save money but I need to know. :)

    Damn, I don't have room for this purchase this spring. Does this GMTO mean you won't make it stock model for fall, or is that still possible?

    Yes, this model will be restocked again but not until the upcoming fall season. Please send us an e-mail and so that I can put you on the waiting list, which means that you will receive information directly when we have it in store again, sales@skoaktiebolaget.se
