Just got hit with my first duties invoice from fedex for my direct carmina purchase. 5% + $6.50 fee. I don't understand why they make it so difficult to pay them. There's no online payment instructions on the form and I go to their website and there's like no link to paying duties online... I really don't want to send a check through snail mail in this day and age.

Call them.  They'll take a credit card number over the phone.

I was told that this is cognac, but this color seems even darker than "dark cognac" from your picture and much, much darker than your "light cognac". Is my picture not a good depiction of cognac?

I know lighting can be an issue when the picture is taken, so I want to compare it apples to apples.

Here are some pictures of my recent purchase. They listed as cognac on carmina online store. They look quite light in natural light. The second picture was taken with flash.

This color is one of my favorites. And I really like all those processes. Really elegant.

Thanks PeterL for the pictures.

In this instance, your pictures of cognac looks lighter than Alden's ravello.

I guess all makers have their own interpretation of colors/shades?

Very nice LWB, btw. I'm assuming it's on the Detriot last right? Definitely a lot sleeker than the Barrie last.

Are carmina shoe trees worth it? If so, which is the recommended place to purchase from (shipped to the US). 

post #8337 of 8979
The trees aren't lasted, but they fit the shoes well and look nice too. There about 100$ at Leatherfoot in toronto. I know gentlemensfoot wear.com sells them in the US.

They're not lasted, but they are noticeably firmer and fuller compared to woodlore epics. Whether or not they're worth 5x the cost is up to you.

 

I've only ever bought mine while buying shoes, but for buying the trees alone, in the US, Steve at gentlemensfootwear.com would probably be your best bet. Leatherfoot has similar pricing, but higher shipping.

The other one that fits well is Skoak's travel shoe tree. They also look lasted and are very light!
