I, too, live in Chi and I wear my SC footwear 9-10 months of the year. I find it wears a little warm--just me. Which is a great thing in the winter--which seems to be forever now.
All three of these shoes are winners. I can't believe how awesome the boots look - when do they ship???I may have to sell a pair of shoes so I can pick of one or both of the others.
They are Carmina. I purchased them from Leatherfoot in Toronto, Canada. Someone grabbed the wrong stock number and shipped me wholecuts. In the end, I am very happy and they offered to make good and do the exchange at no cost to me. I decided to keep them. We are all better as these are first world problems. Wholecuts, monks, dub monks---it requires at least some leisure to care. Great shoes.
Ok. I ordered Monks and got wholecuts. Well, I had wanted wholecuts so maybe it was meant to be. Are the socks geometric enough? If it were Monday, I would call this "Blue Monday."
I have always found the Mac method (which really should be called the Horween method since it is what they suggest) is easy after the first good shine. I can shine my SC shoes in about 1/3 of the time as calf.
I thought as well, but wanted to get your perspectives. Tnx.
Flash and no flash - I am guessing they are both representative of a true look.
Thanks, guys. This is why I have 6 pairs of Carmina on the Rain last (with an additional 3 on the way) and no Meermin and no other Carmina lasts. The shoes beg to be tried on. I may just quit looking - no last fits me as well as the Rain.
Thanks, GC.
Just to keep this meermin - carmina sizing discussion going - the Olfe and the Ben lasts appear the most like the Carmina Rain, is this correct? And do you size the same?
