Carmina Shoes - Official Thread (reviews, advice, sizing, etc...) - Page 1202

Michael Jondral is having a Carmina sale. I just scored some Suede Monkstraps on the Rain last for under $300 USD including shipping. :slayer::slayer:

^ Most of the shoes seem to be EE width, but great sale nonetheless!

Carmina actually considers EE to be normal width. The following was posted by @Leaves from Skaoktiebolaget last year:

 

Carmina widths:
D Very narrow
E Narrow
EE Normal
EEE Wide

Lasts available in different widths:
Forest E , EE , EEE
Detroit E,EE,EEE
Rain D , EE, EEE

I was wondering about this, I'm interested in a pair listed as EE. I wanted to get a feel for the rain last before taking part in a pre order on Skoaktie. Would an EE on here be equivalent to the normal listing on Skoaktie?

Rain EE is definitely normal (D us) width.

Uetam is also available in wide.

That would be yes.

I ordered a pair of the suede loafers on the Pina last. I hope I sized correctly, I went with the same size as I wear in Rain, which fits snug but well.

Thanks for the link.

Can anyone else add online-stores where especially europeans can order carmina without facing VAT issues?

For now I know about Jondral, Skoat, Quality Shop and the official online store only.

Just curious about the Jondral sale, have some questions:

 

I'm a UK 9.5 for Carmina, so that should translate into a US 10.5 = EUR 44 based on Carmina's website guide.

 

However, based on Jondral's specification it says US 10.5 = EUR 44.5.

 

Hence the confusion - will I be ordering too big a size if i go with the Jondral US 10.5/EUR 44.5? Appreciate any advice.

I just purchased a pair of the suede double monks and had the same concern. It looks like all of the UK/EU sizes are mismatched by .5 though (and don't even match the Carmina size chart they have displayed), so I figured this was just a clerical error and ordered in my normal UK size.

Hi ManfromNantucke - in that case which size did you follow? the US or EUR?

 

I'm asking as from my perspective there doesn't seem to be an option to order in UK sizing for me, only either US10/EUR44 or US10.5/EUR44.5 paired together.

 

Great choice though - was eyeing those as well... but budget constraints limit my purchasing behaviour

I am pretty sure that the sizes are in UK. For me, the German and English site display the same size selection, but Jondral uses a linear translation to EU sizes instead of the somewhat non-linear version of Carmina. As far as I know Carmina uses the UK size as reference for their lasts, so youo should take that as the most precise. EU sizes in general are not a good reference, they can vary wildly between lasts and brands.

 

Never hurts to send them a mail, though. There is a real human running the store:D.

Try switching to the German language. To me it vlearly shows 44,5 EU = 10,5 UK, etc

Anyway, why does Forest gets so little love compared to Rain ☹️😧
