It looks absolutely fantastic. If yes details?
Can u comment on whether Carmina are gemmed? How much hand-work goes into them?
lasting? stitched feather? welting? thx
Yes, those are the same shoes, albeit on the display are shown in cognac colour and mine are in ruby. Both are on the Simpson last.
I don't know whether Carmina is gemmed or not and I don't have information about amount of handwork. I may ask Betty Albaladejo those questions, if she agrees to answer them. As for welting, all Carmina's shoes are Goodyear. They also indicate that women shoes are goodywear welted. Here is a pic of shoes that I bought for my wife.
