Some no natural light photos of the jumpers, as mentioned earlier, Oscar last seems a bit narrower than anticipated but pretty sleek overall. Only gripe is stitching is not straight on captoe but it seems like all Carminas have that issue. Cognac shell came out amazing

FTFY. My captoes have perfect stitching.

Pretty much every photo I've seen online isn't straight

Do you know if they source their Shell from Horween - Chicago?

I'm not sure if you're asking if their source is Horween, or if it's a specific Horween location.

 

If your question is the former, then yup, all of the shell is from Horween.

Nice, are they MTO?

Those Ruby boots are stunning, gutted I never got in on that MTO.

Here's a cross post from the Epaulet thread, any advice on how to deal with my sole would be appreciated.

One of these days, I'll learn. Here's a couple of pics of how they are holding up.




Having said all that, I got home from work the other day and noticed this on the sole. I must have stood on some glass or something. Is there a quick fix for this or will I have to go and get them re-soled or re-crafted?



Thanks

Best to have this fully resoled, unfortunately no quick fix will last! I had the same happen to pair of JL shoes I had and had to have the full pair resoled, the sad part was I had only worn them about a dozen times when it happened.

A dozen times? How far do you walk? Jagger, that hole is just the outsole wearing out to the point you can see the cork. A full resole/refurb would be advised. Can you send them back to Carmina? That would be best since they should be able to use the original last to keep the shape.

This typically happens after 2-3 years of wear for me on single soles shoes. Congrats! I find it an accomplishment when I wear soles down (okay, maybe you don't), it's evidence that I get good use out of them.

Cheers. Is that all it is? I've had soles wear it plenty of times and it never looked that but these are a step up from any previous shoes I've had resoled. It just looked to me like something had cut into the sole as I hadn't seen any previous evidence that the sole was ready to go. Yeah, I do wear them a ton and I am quite heavy on my feet so that doesn't help.

I'm in the UK so sending them off to Spain isn't too much of an issue. I'll fire off an email to Carmina, anybody any idea of how much that might set me back?

Thanks.
