    Thanks! Much appreciated. I really enjoy the details of the process while simultaneously driving @tifosi slightly insane

    Since the hardcore SW&D guys wear mismatched footwear I think I will need to wear kudu on one foot and zug on the other...

    Cursing myself for missing the Skoak Polo Derby boot. If anyone has a UK9 that doesn't work out for them please let me know.

    Has anyone picked up the Bonafe in walnut suede? I notice that it doesn't seem to be as much of a hit as some of the other models, especially Carmina. Price is probably a factor, but I wondered if you also find that the color is more difficult than, say, the Carmina fox suede. You can't always tell from the web.

    The color is very hard to reproduce, I'll probably have too re-shoot them. Color is somewhere between Carmina Snuff and Fox Suede.

    They look splendid with jeans!

    @leaves would the Fedex Express option incur custom fees?

    In the same vein, can one choose Swedish post for the free shipping above 8000sek?

    This is where I choose to save a bit of money. I have no problem waiting the 8 days to get my shoes via USPS, Besides I've got enough shoes and boots at this point that I no longer fear that I might have to barefoot while I wait. LOL

    Apart from a 100% certainty that customs will indeed be charged, Fedex is also happy to add a nice clearance fee on top. Edit: Postal carrier it is for me. When lucky, and that happens from time to time, the package is just dropped off without any extra cost by the local postal service.

    @Leaves
    Patrik, when you gents charge the mto balance, I suppose there is still time to determine carrier and also shipping address?

    Yup. I have changed my approach to match yours.

    That's always been my approach. Not to mention that up here in Canuckland, courier delivery is a near guarantee of getting hit with the full assessment of duties and taxes, with broker fees added as a cherry on top. Better believe I can wait a week and a bit for postal delivery.
