i scored some barrats burgundy 2 eyelet derbies at lane crawford a few holidays back. can never figure out how to polish them. they look worse and worse as i shine them. i'm using saphir burgundy. they also look worse when you put them on shoe trees, like they crease so much wtf. so i took them out of the wooden spring loaded ones and put them in plastic ones i use for travel. they have a nice soft chisel though and the leather is probably really delicate.

Carmina offers some great shell shoes.
post #19 of 26
Carmina are extremely well made with a beautifully waisted sole on the one pair I own. I'd say my super soft black calf pair comfortably match C & J benchgrade at least & are close to handgrade IMHO.

Campers for ultra comfortable casual wear ( throw away when soles get worn down without crying over the expense).

I know Mezlan doesn't get a lot of love on this forum, but I have several pair of Mezlan shoes in exotic skins and I really enjoy them. I don't wear them often, so i don't expect to get a lot of miles on them, but they are well-made, attractive and comfortable. I probably get more compliments with them than with any of my other (Alden, AE, C&J, etc.) shoes.

Very good information,thank you for share!

Norman Vilalta is not in Palma de Mallorca anymore. Just in Barcelona. But you can find his shoes in Madrid (JUST ONE) and at Unión Suiza (Barcelona; special collection for them). 

 

His shoes are really great, but not cheap at all (his leathers are awesome and he finishes the shoes and makes the patinas himself, so I guess you pay for what you are asking) . For something more afordable and still good quality, Carmina.

 

In Spain, for Bespoke I would go for him or, if just want a simple, more classic shoe, for Enriles. Ramón Cuberta is.... well, he hasn´t too much experience and it results clearly from his shoes.
