That is correct. They changed the name from Alpine. I guess Mountain calf seems more exotic sounding.This is mountain calf, great leather with a subtler texture. If Im not mistaken this is in fact Annonays Montagrain Alpine leather aka alpine grain.
I did some research and saw that it is indeed 800. I bought a pair of shell boots and forgot all about duty tax. Wish is was a bit cheaper but such is life.
Would you mind sharing what the bill was for duties paid?Same here. Oddly enough I have never been dinged for duty for Carmina orders. Not sure if that's because they have a US presence or if Carmina is picking up the fee. In any event, since you looked into it, would you be able to confirm if the duty is meant to apply to the full price of the item and not just the excess over the $800 duty free amount?
I think they'd look great with navy, but for grey I think it'd depend.
