Same with me. I've called and resubscribed a few times. No luck. I think they both will look good. I have the Frans Boone version, but the antique edge is still quite dark. Also, you can always apply some black edge trim on there for a quick DIY fix. Also, highly recommend this boot. They're some of my favorites.
I think it's the latter. She said specifically that if we only collect for 9, instead of 10, the order won't be submitted. I'm trying to see if I can get a retail sponsor. Only #8 and Black shell is available right now. I asked twice about Rain last and no answer yet.
I like both the Queens and Simpson last. I'm having a hard time picturing it with the Simpson last without seeing a photo. The Queens last is gorgeous, but perhaps more casual than the Rain/Simpson last because of the rounded toe.
@sacafotos - I think it's the simpson last. There was a change, recently they gave the okay for the rain last for another GTMO. Do you have a preference? I don't have any experience with carmina lasts, but I want a shell derby in my arsenal.
