Maiden voyage of the copper suede gmto!
I just picked up my GMTO copper suede captoes from FedEx!  [[SPOILER]]  Here they are with my other GMTO Meermins: Finally, I think some people had questions about how the new Park last looks compared to the Carmina Simpson last, so here are some side by side photos. I'll try and give some better impressions once I've worn the Meermin's a couple times, but here are a few initial ones: The Park last has a much more "square" toebox than the Simpson, particularly from the...
I picked up mint from FedEx yesterday!        
 Looking good! missed my delivery today :(
Those look like the Olfe lasted ones, right?   Look great! Any QC issues? Or are they as good as they look at first glance?   Mine are en route from Newark to California... go faster Fedex!
 Same for me!
