Which is the sleekest last from Carmina? How does it compare to C&J 348?

Check your emails, lads; the Oscar boot invoices just got sent out.

post #2000 of 8823
I stopped by Skoaktiebolaget today and talked to Adam and tried Oscar last and some G&G, met Leaves too. Great store and excellent service but that was no surprise since i´ve got the same service with email with the MTO.

Some sizing info.
I have a boot in the RAIN last 7.5UK and decided to go with the same size in Oscar.
BUT, Oscar fits more snugg and i think i could go with a 7UK in rain in the future since the RAIN boot is in suede and have streched a bit. Oscar is lower in the insteap but that should not be a problem for most since i have a very high insteap.

How do you find the width of the Oscar compared to the Rain in the same size?

Oh and first class service from Skoaktiebolaget.  Will continue to do biz with them in the future. 


Some had trouble viewing my pictures and requested that I repost.  I am doing so as an attachment now.  Hopefully this works.

Beautiful boots, pats. I (along with a few others) am disappointed about missing out on the first stock of those, so you'd better enjoy the hell out of them.

     that's essentially our MTO boot ? (understand that the noob understands the variation)

Ah, that I can understand. I'll have my first Carmina boots coming in from Epaulet hopefully within a week, and god knows that the last three months of waiting have been hell.

there ya go, that's what i meant.

having the AS Moore in hard to locate chestnut in my size should be a couple o weeks away & may help a little.

i really am stoked about the boot. i think we made an excellent choice. (insert mental justification here)
