    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I have found the EB 804 to be an excellent last as well.

    Interesting note, it is almost identical to Carmina Inca when laid side by side.

    Thanks.

    Yes, it's even so slightly more contoured than JL 7k. Hugs the foot more (though that instep is steep). But at anything other than a close inspection, it's nearly identical!

    Both are wide fit.

    I've not tried the 8000 but yes, I take 10 wide on 804 and 7000.

    Just received this pair of string loafers as a surprise birthday present from my girlfriend.

    Just want to say a big thanks to the team at SkoaB. For helping her with the sizing, and for giving recommendations, and also for keeping things secret.

    It touched my heart.

    And the way to my heart, is through my feet.

    I am a lucky man indeed.
    What more could I ask for in life?

    Those are really nice. Too bad they sold out in my size.

    Is there a difference between an item saying "Waiting list" vs "Sold out"? Does it mean "Sold out" means it's not coming back?

    Hi SkoAB team,

    Any updates on planned arrivals and restocks in the next couple of months? Thanks

    The Waiting List feature is for popular high volume styles that will be restocked. Sometimes we restock other styles as well though, so it's not a 100% bullet proof system. But it's a very good indicator.

    I have not decided if we are going to post an upcoming styles list in the future, it kind of ruins the element of surprise. TBD.

    True, but it sure can be helpful for those who like to plan their purchases in advance! Not that I am one of those individuals, my shoe purchases seem to be somewhat impulsive with signs of addiction. :)

    I can certainly understand wanting to preserve the element of surprise. However, a list of what you will have doesn't compare to the surprise of seeing the shoes in pictures once they're offered for sale. So I think there will always be some surprise/excitement involved.

    I would want to mention that there are other benefits to an upcoming styles list and I'll use myself as an example. About a month and a half ago I placed a single Bonafe MTO for the black captoe that's been so popular. Then, a few weeks later, it was introduced on your site as a RTW shoe. I'll be honest, I was a little bummed and a little curious why that couldn't have at least have been mentioned when I was placing the MTO. The only difference between what I did and what you sell is the last, which is something I would have happily compromised on to save on the MTO fee and get my shoes 3-4 months sooner. I feel compelled to also mention that your store would have gotten their entire fee 3-4 months sooner as well. My purpose in relaying this example is not to complain because I think you're an excellent store, you provide excellent customer service, and it is what it is, but to give you an example on how the posting of an upcoming styles list could have provided real benefits to both customer and store.

    Anyway, just my thoughts.

    I also imagine not having makeups listed means other less inspired shops can't copy. :)

    I appreciate your feedback. The challenge for us is the sheer number of MTOs we handle every week. So I completely understand and can relate but in this particular case I can't blame the guys for not noticing we had a similar RTW style incoming. We don't even keep a complete consolidated list of incoming RTW styles ourselves, and this needs to be improved of course, but I'm still a bit sceptical about the waiting list. I'll weigh pros and cons and we'll see what the future holds.
