On hold, pending a new leather, but there is a MTO in the works here inspired by that Cabourn boot: http://www.styleforum.net/t/392761/viberg-for-styleforummarket-com-mto-copper-task-roughout-service-boot-on-the-110-last/45
I'm TTS 7.5E, take a 7E Barrie nicely, and a 6.5UK wide on Detroit fits really well. Rain in 6.5UK wide is a little snug at first but breaks in to a good point. I think I prefer the rounded shape of Detroit better though. My 2 cents.
Wanted to share some more natural light photos of the Detroit last cognac shell PTB but wanted to comment on two things as well: Detroit LastThis is my second pair of Carmina's, and first on the Detroit last. Wow. The Detroit last is definitely the Carmina last for me moving forward. I measure 7.5E US and took a 6.5 UK wide per Steve's recommendation (same size as my Rain last boot). These fit phenomenally well for my foot, more so than the Rain last boot I also have. JR...
Hi Henry, great to see more shops like yours popping up in LA. I'll have to swing by next time I'm back in town. Out of curiosity, is this code still applicable? Been eying a few items as of late and wanted to try and catch the code before the month rolls over, but I'm seeing that it's not working anymore. Thanks!
Fok, thanks for your answer. I think you may have just convinced me. I suppose my concerns were more in the water damage camp and less in the area of waterproofing or wet feet - to me that comes with the territory. I think I'll take my chances, considering Portland tends to be an always on drizzle rather than severe storms (for now...). Looking forward to the make-up. Thanks!
