    UPDATE, I think we now have 6 interested participants and are leaning towards dark brown museum.

    @appoooh , @JARB , would you guys be in for dark brown museum?

    I'll like to propose a gmto for the carmina 80092 model in full calf on the elusive Robert last.


    Currently interested members: @fllick , @laufer , @appoooh , @JARB , @itraxx , @Dieg0
    We need 2 more members to qualify for this gmto.
    Interested members please quote and add your name in.Thank you.


    Price: 3120 sek for either brown calf or brown museum calf. (Thanks @Skoaktiebolaget for the quote)
    Specs: 80092 balmoral boot
    eyelets: 10: 6 blind 4 speed hooks
    colour: dark brown, museum calf? (I'm fine with either and will go with the majority)
    Soles: Dainite rubber soles

    The boot looks like this

    I would definitely be interested in hearing a quote for the price, especially if it is the museum brown.

    ^^ After the price increase tomorrow (Monday) any RTW or GMTO calf or suede boot will be 3120 SEK ex VAT. There is no surcharge for Museum Calf. Brown MC is no problem, as mentioned we have it incoming for an Oxford style.

    The price is the same as the calf at 3120 sek. Are you more interested now?

    That's a very good price, I'd either be in on this order or the other carmina MTO in cxl. Mostly will come down to price, as I really think either boot will be gorgeous. The speed hooks will be the shiny brass that's pictured?

    Edit:I would also prefer to see commando soles instead of danite, but again if the price is lower for this order I'D be in either way.
    Edit2:does that include shipping to the US or is shipping extra?

    Might be interested in joining this if you go with dark brown museum. One thing though, do we know where Carmina stock their museum calf from? I'm asking since I know that Bonaudos museum is not good in wet conditions at all (easily stained by water) due to the way they treat the leather. Ilceas museum is better for rain. Those are the only two I own shoes of and have experience with, don't know how Haas or Zonta and other's are with this. Since it's a boot I'd like it to take rain and shitty weather in a decent way.

    Just placed an order for a couple of work staples. Maybe not the most "exotic" shoes, but they should be see quite a bit of use. :embar::)

    Just placed an order in the 11th hour for a pair of EG and GG shoes. I am officially broke for remainder of 2014. Considering self-banning myself until 2015.

    Thanks for the excellent service as always, the SkoAB team has been a big help these past few months on my little spending spree. Hope to have a drink with you guys whenever I decide to visit Sweden :D.

    Orders have been pouring in like crazy. Thanks guys! Might be delivery times are a little longer than usual the next few days as the number of orders are quite staggering for a small store like ours. :)

    That certainly is a counter-culture statement for SF. Insurrectionist. :)
