1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Sounds weird! Please e-mail us and we'll look into it, and I'll ask @GabrielOB directly too.

    I have a medium high instep. I found the chelsea boot to fit slightly more snug around the instep and ball width than the chocolate suede chukka on the Soller last (as suede is generally lasted less tightly than calf), but I find them to be very similar in fit in general.

    Please note that my sizing does not in any way constitute any general recommendations.

    No restock incoming until next spring/summer season (March), but if you guys both want this, I can order it for you, it's a three-four month waiting time. Please e-mail sales@skoaktiebolaget.se with your sizing info and we'll get back to you.

    Edit: We got 10 pairs incoming within a week or so.

    Thank you. Gabriel put me on the waiting list. Picked up the Carmina tobacco suede chukka from him too. Gotta have something to wear while I wait :satisfied:

    For the original order coming in September, it has the speed hooks on the top four.

    Hey Leaves,

    This MTO sounds interesting. I have an average width foot (E) but a low instep. Will the 202 work for me?

    Thanks!

    So far I only have one pair of bal boots (a pair of AS Millers), but every once in awhile I'll come across a pair of G&Gs or EG Shannons I wouldn't mind getting.

    Thanks for the clarification!

    Yeah, I'm slowly transitioning to EG and G&G (lasts just fit much better for me); I have the GMTO Millers and C&J Somervilles that I'm probably going to unload once I get the dark oak Shannons.

    I can't get over these. Drooling nonstop:

    Just in time for my friend's wedding in a few weeks.

    Superb sizing advice from Alex and Gabriel. Great service (shipping speed, communication). Eager to score the Enzo wholecut next round!

    @Skoaktiebolaget

    Based on the updated EG policies that @Leaves just recently described in the EG thread. Would it be possible to make an announcement whenever you plan to place a re-stock order with EG (both Skoak & EG stock models alike)? Since single order stock mto are not possible anymore, this would help be very helpful. If you already do this, i apologize... :embar:

    Just e-mail us which models you are interested in, we always review our "waiting list" before we place an order. :)
