I just got my UK8 singlemonk shell carminas stretched by a cobbler and they fit a lot better now...also no damage to the shape.

 

But the guy shakes his head as he hands these (less than a month old and worn twice) shoes to me and says "you dont take care of these shoes, they're spoiled....the leather is so hard" biggrin.gif

 

Then he put some vile looking cream on a rag and was about to rub it on them and I stopped him just in time. Its free he said. Never mind I said. He obviously thinks Im crazy.

How do you forget you bought a pair of Carminas and not wear them for a year?!

Ballers tend to do that.

I like to think that even if I were a baller I would never get over the urge to wear a new pair of shoes the very next day.

I meant that a baller gets so many new shoes that it becomes possible for him to forget to wear one.

If I got two pairs of new shoes I would switch them at lunch the next day cool.gif

Thank you everyone that have ordered the special edition "FrankTheSheep" Cordovan Derby Boot. We have received the deposit from all but two participants and we're giving them until Friday Nov 2, then we place the order with Carmina and stragglers are left behind (no looking back biggrin.gif).

having a bit of trouble getting my new carmina's to take a good polish.  I can get a nice sheen but not mirror shine.  Does this get better as time goes on?  I had a similar issue with some Edward Greens at first, but they take a great shine now.  Never had this issue with C&J so just curious.

@Leaves...can't believe you keep offering more and more fantastic last/style combos.  You make it very hard to not give you my money. LOL! biggrin.gif
