Thanks, cats! I'm quite over the moon about them. The heel pad is even lined with blue shell, which is a nice touch.

That's looks majestic. Just the right shade colour too in my opinion.

So Peppercorn...How about a preview as to what you're thinking about pairing those with for the maiden voyage?

I"ve never tried it before with blue shoes because I don't own red pants, but I've always liked the blue shoes dark red pants combo.

I can get a mirror shine on the captoe if I want, but I don't because they're semi-casual boots. I'd agree that it's definitely harder than normal calf. Be happy, at least yours are marbled, mine have like 1 spot with marbling, looks like a mistake instead of a intentional finish.

Just caught sight of these on the web and wow! they look great! The real-life photo shows them so much nicer than the one on the Carmina website. Now I am torn--at the normal $575 price I'd take them in a heartbeat, but at $900 MTO (w/toe taps) on the Carmina website it is hard to say that they're worth it, especially as I am getting pretty close to G&G or EG territory at that price. 

 

Any help??

If you really like them, then why not? I myself would go elsewhere for $900

Loden is a nice color, not too green in most lighting
