That's a great looking boot. I was thinking about purchasing it, but the CXL was a no go for me. Would like to see the boot after it has been worn for a year. To me, CXL just is too stretchy, etc. A lot of people here love it. I would love that boot if it were country calf.Thrilled with my Carmina shells. They sprung up on me and now I have 4 pair. Anybody here have a pair of the single monks in shell?
+1 I really just dislike the material. I am always surprised at the admiration so many people here have for it--but as they say, horses for courses. I try not to wear work boots.
Sorry, again, don't want to be a buzzkill, but I absolutely hate CXL. I cannot understand why it is used for shoes at all. I would be in --later in the year--on a grain or other chukka, but not CXL. It just isn't proper shoe leather to me. (Moccasins for sure, but not shoes.)I would wish you all good luck with that one.
I like these ideas as well.

Thanks for making the Rain last chukka work, Steve. Maybe towards the end of the year we can do a rain last calf chukka? Or a shell chukka (then I can sell my Aldens) But let's do this at the end of the year. I am shoe poor. 😎
Sorry, I think I created the noise around the lining. I am ok with any lining--except for a few of the exotics being discussed here Tan, Brown, Purple or Red - I really don't care. If I was doing the order myself, I would go with red or purple, but those are the compromises we make to save a few shekels. Cheers.
I am not sure that, without actually trying the shoes on, anyone can help you. I wear an 8UK Rain and I believe that would be to big for you. A 7.5auKnRain likely too small. You need to try them on to know for sure.
I will go with the majority on this, but my vote is for purple or red. I have on Brown Carmina Wingtips with a purple liner and it is only visible when you put them on or take them off. Again, I will go with the majority though.
Please no storm welt --that would be a deal killer for me. Don't mean to be a buzzkill but a tough makeup is not what I am looking for.
