It does not look to be Dainite sole. Or am I mistaken?
post #4218 of 19365
Its called the "victoria" sole - slightly thicker than the dainite soles, which I wanted to try for these more rugged boots.

Phuck - those are awesome! Which last did you choose?

I remember just a year ago people hated Carmina and bashed the hell out of it for its low quality. I want to know which Styleforum member changed this and made Carmina a fad here.

I don't remember this. In fact, I was in Paris about two years ago and visited the Carmina showroom based solely on the praise they received here on the forvm.

I thought it was ongoing love/hate feud. For example: The Great Carmina Massacre BS thread http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...hlight=carmina

From what I've seen recently - I'm really digging Carmina.

yeah, that thread was started last month, though. And people just have differing opinions, as with everything else.
The way I see it, Carmina has had a strong run recently because you can actually buy them now rather easily, courtesy of our friends at The Armoury. People like Fidel, NORE, and, I guess, MAC, recently, bought a pair, created threads about these, which is why they seem more visible. That is all.
post #4227 of 19365
Carmina was the ONLY brand that I bought two pair after remembering the various threads I'd seen on them and having no first-hand experience. I only did a search after pulling the trigger. When they came I was very pleased. Very nice shoes at this point in time. Can't speak for prior or if the Armoury commissions were special.

I am very pleased with the pairs I bought and will continue to encourage other members to patronize.

Not exactly shoes but some recent damage.

I have been using the CREME UNIVERSELLE for a long time. It's a leather cleaner and conditioner. Good stuff. More economical than the RENOVATEUR.

When you watch the video from JM Weston' website about a gentleman's demonstrating shoe polishing, you can see he was also using that cream to clean/condition the shoes.

TD - those suede Carmina boots are killer! Excellent work with the soles as well. A nice balance between elegance and rusticity.
