It looks very Cinderellian. Yes, I just made up that word.

did you take the same size as rain last or simpson last?

When using shoe trees, tape a few layers of cardboard to the instep of the tree and insert. Additionally, take one part rubbing alcohol one part water, use a clean cloth and apply some of that solution to the instep. Alcohol loosens leather fibers, which in conjunction with the now higher instep shoe tree, to raise the instep.

Hi guys,
Trying to get and understanding of Snuff, Ravello, Polo Suede. Especially Snuff suede I find the color appearing slightly different on various pictures. Anybody have some "live" pictures of Carmina Snuff suede would be highly appreciated.
Cheers.

With Ravello, are you actually referring to Tobacco? Never heard of Ravello Suede.

Tobacco is more yellowish and warmer than Snuff. Polo is darker. I believe we have all three represented on your website. Scroll down a bit: http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/Suede

Did you mean 'Rapello' suede?

Just received the Jodhpur Boots on the Forest Last. I already found a thread stating that type of heel lift is somewhat normal.

However, here we have a rubber sole instead of leather. So I figured while the leather sole will be worn down a little bit anyway, rubber will remain for the most part?

I might be overthinking it, but just want to be sure smile.gif

Also is there a reason why I seem to have more space in the heel in those boots compared to the derbies, which are on the same last?

Yeah sorry, obviously meant rapello. From what I can see its close to snuff? Anyhow, my main struggle is regarding the brightness of Carmina snuff suede. On some pictures it looks very bright on others slightly more warm color.

Repello is a type of suede, not a color
"A range of high quality, fine-napped calf suede for men’s dress and casual footwear, tanned to give a full, generous handle and rich appearance. Fully treated with ‘Scotch Guard’ in the tannage, to achieve a high degree of resistance to staining in general. The proofing remains effective throughout the life of the footwear"
From the CF Stead website.
