I only come here for the shoe parn but I'll take cypi2's side on this (even for 2.63). Here's a rundown of some legitimate complaints that have stuck in my mind:
1. backhanded price increase
2. dude comes on here with some messed up shoes. We ALL agree they're messed up. Carmina does nothing UNTIL he posts here.
3. Some high fiving going on at a NYC trunk show when Carmina screws over someone.
4. now this.
Full disclosure: I have 2 carmina shells that I'm really happy with.
