I wrote to Carmina about the availability of ruby shell cordovan, and was told that they "have style 80105 , Oxford toecap punched , in Ruby shell cordovan" available (though not on the website). A little Googling brought up this pic from a Japanese website:

 

 

 

Anyone know what last that is?

Does anyone own both of these and can comment on their fit, looks and quality? I know this a Carmina chat but I think I can get an unbiased opinion.

Can I bump my own question?

Anyone?

I've seen the Simpson in person and the toe cap is quite narrow. Reminds me C&J 348 last. Too pointy for me. My guess is that the Rain is wider. Also, I thought Alcudia is like Simpson, not rain.

Hi Namor,
Proxy from Spain.
Bought the Suede Chelsea boot yesterday. Implored Betty not to include an invoice/printed price tag, but she is quite adamant about marking full invoice....means At least $200 in duty to me...on a $400 shoe!
I would request RKD, but I can't find him..

I've ordered twice from Spain with Dhl as carrier and never got hit with fee. What I paid carmina was the total price. Shipped to Cali

What could RKD due for you?
post #1409 of 9250
We get slapped with 50% on Invoice PLUS 30% duty on shipping cost!

Yeah Simpson is the narrowest. I believe only difference between rain and alcudia is toe, square vs round (disproportionally large) round toe, respectively
