That would be sick if they do some thing like that. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

If no one beats me to it, I'll post the measurements of mine tomorrow but I suspect it's about 8" on the left pair

Can you give your size in Carmina and a fit comparison?

It's a little tricky.

 

I have high instep with wide feet and relatively short toes i.e it is kinda shaped like V. The U last tapers rather aggressively at the toes but still works for me due to my short toes.

 

I am wearing 41.5 for U last and mostly UK 7.5 for most Carmina lasts. The most "similar" Carmina last is probably Rain and that is extremely borderline for me in 7.5 mainly due to toe box. I feel U last has a wider ball area and also narrow in the toe box like Rain. However toe are for U last feels slightly wider than Rain for me. U last also has a much higher instep which works for me. U last has a much tighter heel area also.

 

I would say be mentally prepared to sell at a slight loss if sizing for U last doesn't work out. I would not recommend if you have low instep or long toes.

 

Hope that helps!

Actually I am not certain as I bought them from a reseller but it should be Cognac if I was making a guess.

That's what I would of guessed or antique cognac.

I had emailed Rezso to ask and he says antic cognac calf but I dunno. It looks more like cognac to me as most antique cognac looks darker from online pics.
