I don't know where else I can get it besides Skoak and I live in the US.  I should've asked them to add it to my order when they shipped it.  I just don't need $50 worth of stuff from Skoak right now to get the free shipping.  I have Saphir for every other color I own, so I don't really need other waxes besides burgundy

Simpson, suede/cordovan

Quick question - I ordered the 9UK uetam loafers, and they fit well. Minimal heel slippage and tight across the top of the foot. 8.5UK would be too tight and 9.5UK would be too much slippage. 
 
What size would you recommend for the rain last (non-loafer).

8.5 for rain

Hi,

The almond shape of Inca is great and this color (vegano marron, right?) suits it! How well do the shoe trees fit?

Wear them in good health!

Hi,

I see your point although I do not possess but italian shoes. I have read with interest in SF the fitting experience that you American gentlemen have with US brands, but I cannot really comment; AE and Alden were always "too round" for my taste.

At any rate, you may always drop a line to CARMINA to enquire whether Buger will be available in wider options. If however they inform me before that, I would be more than happy to share it with you.

Cheers

I don't get the Buger last to be honest.  A narrow toe but wide in the waist and heel?  Who has feet shaped like that?  

 

Anyways, I wish they made a last that was just like the current Rain last but with a normal sized (ie: a slightly narrower) heel.

Actually, I was thinking it sounds a lot like my feet, or at least it would if I could order it in an extra wide!

There's a narrower width Rain fitting that is supposed to have a narrower heel to address the heel width issue many people have. Perhaps unsurprisingly, I can't vouch for it personally though.

I would be very interested to hear about personal experiences of Rain in narrow width from people who also have Rain in standard fitting.

Hi,

I think that they were trying to create a Simpson-like last with more volume; the easy way for them would be of course just to take the Simpson last and offer a wider option as well (as in other lasts). Instead, they worked for quite some time on Buger to create something new, G&G-esque for gentlemen who would not / cannot go to high-end brands.

Cheers

Hi,

I totally agree with you!

It would also be of interest if someone who ordered Rain in narrow width (just not to forget this is a D) and also possesses Simpson (this is an E), to share his experience. Theoretically, the narrow Rain has to be tighter than the Simpson!

Cheers

I think its the Model 80248 without tassels (Rain Last)

Unfortunately, my Carmina boots on the Alcudia last are way too tight for my feet and I need to return them.

What return address have you used if needed to return to Carmina directly? Their website says to return to the address mentioned on the invoice or delivery note but they have two different addresses printed on them....

Address on digit invoice received by e-mail:

ALTA ZAPATERIA BALEAR, S.L.
Ctra. Palma - Alcudia, Km 30,300
07300 - Inca
Mallorca - España

Address printed on paper delivery note that came with the boots:

ALTA ZAPATERIA BALEAR, S.L.
Calle Berenguer d'Anoia, 60 - 2˚
07300 - Inca
Mallorca - España
