Carmina Shoe P0rn. - Page 312

post #4666 of 8945

^ Cheers, thanks stmaier.

 

Given the slight controversy surrounding the delivered colour on the previous order, and the smaller size of this order, I imagine we can push for some reassurances from Carmina (via Skoaktie) regarding the colour.

 

I slightly prefer this darker "true" cognac but to be honest, I would be perfectly happy with the lighter colour as well.

Just ordered two pairs. Neither were in stock at the main place, but available at other Carmina stores, so they shipped to the main Carmina store first, then shipped to me. Took about 7 business days. They used DHL, and I got hit with import duties facepalm.gif

 

Beautiful shoes, though.

In my experience, DHL = automatic hit with every kind of duty / tax that exists.

Agreed, our boot is more of a dark cognac.  It is quite stunning.  nod[1].gif

More dark cognac pictures for you.

What's the color of the pair, top picture, in between green and dark cognac? Saddle?
post #4673 of 8945

Yes, saddle or some say light brown.

Anybody interested in a Brown Suede Bal boot with speed hooks?

 

I am looking for a nice new boot for Autumn and a full suede boot sounds pretty nice before full winter strikes southern Sweden. I am thinking either York or Dainite. Maybe this color?

yeah, new along with a couple others including the rain lasted suede chukka. this particular make-up looks like a bad photoshop. perhaps upon viewing a similar dark cognac wingtip someone at Carmina decided to create a similar shoe in the same shell color and once they took delivery they noticed how much lighter the shoe turned out so someone just decided to reduce the contrast and increase the brightness and voila a "new" shoe is born because marketing a saddle shell colored shoe as a dark cognac shoe might be considered misrepresentation. and thats not cool with a ~$700ish shoe or boot

There was a unipair note that floated a grey suede boot either yesterday or the day before.

Pretty sure Carmina's web shop still has a snuff suede bal boot with a York sole.

If anyone is a UK 9, 10 or 11, is in the US, and wants to avoid any customs surprises, this looks to be the same pair from farfetch that was posted here a while ago:

 

http://www.farfetch.com/shopping/men/carmina-shoemaker-lace-up-oxford-item-10349002.aspx?storeid=9269

 

From Carmina you'll pay about $630 with shipping and risk customs while from farfetch it'll be about $640 with shipping and customs already paid.

Just stopped by Wilkes Bashford in SF and they just started to carry Carmina. Only 3 models thus far but I thought I would chime in and let folks in the Bay Area know.

They had a few captoes and a textured loafer. Looked like rain last
