    FYI I don't believe there really is green utah. I just made a photoshop based on leaves comments about Stevents love of green shoes.

    I bought a pair of Carmina balmoral boots earlier this week. My bank gave me a ~8.3 SEK to USD exchange rate, which (unsurprisingly) wasn't as good as the 8.4-8.5 SEK to USD market rate at the time, but when I'm paying ~$385 (before shipping) for boots that would retail for $595 in the U.S., I can't complain. At all.

    GUSVS, I love that make up. So for me its probably down to dark brown Utah versus Mahogany CC...

    Just to confirm, can someone comment on what the best method is to pay and get the best exchange rate? I have a capitalone travel card with no foreign transaction fee. If the invoice is sent to me in SEK via paypal, will I be able to pay through paypal, get the exchange from the credit card and avoid paypal exchange rates?

    Thanks in advance, I haven't done something like this before (paying in foreign currency through paypal, my previous purchases were just directly on the skoak website).

    Yes. Search this thread for more details but there is an option to pay through your card if on your computer and not phone

    Yeah, the "trick" is to choose the option in Paypal that basically says you're paying in SEK and not using Paypal's (ripoff) exchange rate.

    Yup - if you login through an internet browser there is an option to change to credit card and get their exchange rate. The option is next to your bank account info. The paypal exchange rate is awful.

    Good question. Not sure. I usually pay with PayPal balance. There is more of a fee with CC. Sending you PM.

    0.5% to 2% fee when fully funded with your bank account or PayPal balance or 3.4% to 3.9% if paying with a credit or debit card
