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.

    Cheers,

    think Carmina was only upped a very small single digit percentage, but it fluctuates everyday based upon the $.

    The swedish central bank recently lowered their interest rates, but i think it's about as far as it will go before it appreciates.

    So the 724 toe is narrower, higher instep and similar heel, all marginally for the AS 724 compare to Rain, both the same size.

    Thanks wurger. Lower instep for Rain is good news. My 724 has some heel slip & toe area a bit tight. Seems you have more overall room in the Rain then but still fits reasonably well..

    Toe room is about comfort and pain, it's the instep and heel that matters for holding the foot inside the shoe..

    300 SEK is a flat rate for any order below 8000 SEK ex VAT, or you can have them sent by FedEx Priority for a few bucks more. Shipping for any order above 8000 SEK is free of charge for North America.
    Incoming in a few days, please email to be on the waiting list.
    Thank you Steven, always a pleasure. Now, you need to start thinking about green sharkskin EB boots! :)
    We almost always have these in stock in Burgundy, and they can be restocked quickly if your size is out of stock. Please email us and we'll help you. sales@skoab.se
    Fits really well, but not us good as G&G lasted trees.
    Yes, Veldt. Double Ridgeway (double is always standard for any EG shoe except for the R1 sole).
    Etrusco, will arrive in late April I hope.
    Please email sales@skoab.se and we will help you.
    They do offer shoe trees, and they look quite nice, they are 800 SEK ex VAT. Justin, I think you mean lasted EB trees are not available. They are not for ready-to-wear or normal MTO, but if you go the bespoke route, then lasted trees can be ordered.
    Consider our super light weight travel shoe trees if weight is an issue: http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/products/skoaktiebolaget-travel-trees
    We rolled out a small price adjustment March 1st. Please email us for fitting advise.

    Thanks, Leaves. Is there a notification list available for these? In that case, I'd like to be added to it. Also I'd you don't mind, how many of each size have you ordered? Thanks.

    I think you mean someone else, I've never expressed any interest in this kind of make up.

    Respectfully, you should probably give this a rest for now. There's not even a tentative data for when burgundy shell will be available for a GMTO again.

    +1. Perhaps a separate thread is appropriate.

    Congrats Justin! Are those the standard colors? The uppers look darker I think than mine. Could be lighting. Looks great! Everyone should have a pair of Wigmores!

    Wow those are awesome. I'd consider getting those if I wasn't on a shoe moratorium. How long did it take to get to your door from the time you placed the order?
