Got my GMTO punched captor with tomir sole. I tooK a picture to see if the leather is normal and nothing to worry about, thoughts?

These haven't been worn yet. This is put of the box. I know they'll crease anyways, just wanted to make sure they it's not a defect that'll cause any problems (toe box and lacing spots)

Did they come with the laces in at least the bottom eyelets to make those marks or did you put them in and tighten them? Leather looks fine.

They came laced that tightly and I just took the laces out for a quick waxing to protect them. Haven't put them on yet

Hmm, I don't usually see them come laced all the way up, but those are marks you'll get from wearing the shoes. No damage/harm done. Enjoy the new shoes fistbump.gif

Carmina x GYW Navy Shell Jodhpurs.  Think I'll call these my "Blue Moon" Jodhpurs. :)  That's probably how often a chance for these will come around.  Need to get some pictures of them in natural light tomorrow.

That's a real purdy unicorn you have there! Part of me wishes I had pulled the trigger on these, but most of these is glad, due to how tight a fit rain is for me.

Congrats of the boots, they're gorgeous.

By blue moon I mean how often Carmina makes them, not how often I'll be wearing them. :)

Congrats my man, I all most went on this but, didn't because I wanted the buckle to tilt downwards. Any how lovely jodhpur, how is the fit? Did you take your regular rain size or went down half from your rain size?

Just got these in! I am insanely excited. The shell feels a little thinner than my Alden 975's, and the fit is somewhere in between my suede chelseas and my 905 calf chukkas. The toebox is nice and snug, but there is a little bit of heel slip which should go away with wear.

Fit is great.  I size down a half for my rain boots (10.5US to 9UK).  I had another pair of black calf jodhpurs (also a Carmina x GYW reddit GMTO) in size 9UK which fit like a dream.  My fox suede chelseas on rain in 9.5UK are loose unless I wear thick wool socks (doh).  These fit just like my black calf jodhpurs.  Will be interesting to see how they hold up, especially the strap (as I hear shell has some issues with that).  But I believe the strap is lined with calf to help.

All aboard the navy shell jodhpur train? :)

 

I have to say these are really cool, and the leather is pretty fantastic.  Lots of depth of color, and looks almost green indoors.
