    Nope, but it is on the screen right before you complete the transaction, so take your time and look for it...

    I noticed that you have a couple of Carmina models on the pre-arrival list in "lama" calf. Do you have a description or pic of this leather?

    I don't think that is a Bonafe made shoe, it's a completely unrelated Japanese bespoke made shoe. The original post is a little misleading...

    If I recall, switching the PayPal conversion option on the mobile version is nearly impossible. It is more obvious where to click and change on the desktop. With all of the no transaction fee cards using good exchange rates, the savings can add up. Of course buying every great Skoak model and deal will eventually result in no savings!

    I wouldn't normally wouldn't take the liberty of editing other SF members posts. But in this case the last part of your statement was so dangerous and counter to what we're trying to achieve, I just couldn't help but erasing it from this qoute. LOL

    Yes, Bonafé would be able to do a similar model but this particular pair is from another shoemaker.

    Just want to give shoutout to Gabriel for providing great help with EG 606 last sizing.

    I wear Carmina Inca and Forest in size 8UK and the fit is perfect. Rain last in size 8UK is a bit loose.

    I tried Galway in 82 and Westminster in 888 last and size 8.5UK was OK but with a bit room in the toe box.


    I'm US9D on Brannock and also wear Alden 8.5D Barrie in both, shoes and boots.

    Final decision, EG Dover in doak size 8E UK.

    awesome!!! psyched for you

    it seems like the vast majority of folks take their Barrie size i.e. 8.5US and 8.5UK. But for me that has proven slightly to roomy. My dovers are an 8Uk to correlate with my 8US Barrie and I use a liner to take up volume. I have a different shoe due on the 202 any day which is a 7.5 and I am very curios to see the fit on that. However I know that a 7.5 is too small on 82...so it seems like I am a bit of tweener in EG depending on the last

    So do you gents suggest to size down a half size when ordering the 202 size? My first pair will be coming soon on the 888 last, and i was wondering if a 202 in the same last would work...

    I wouldn't either. In the same size I find the 202 a good fit and the 888 to be snug. There's a difference but I don't see it being a whole 1/2 size worth of difference.
