I did a bad thing... I'm in Madrid for work and had the intention of checking out Meermin and maybe buying a pair of shoes. Unfortunately, they did not have any of the shoes I wanted in my size at the time, so I left empty handed. As a result, I decided to stick my head in the Carmina store on Gran Via.... turned out to be a several hundred euro mistake! :)

Nope, just dark brown calf. I was looking at a more plain cap toe in the burgundy, and loved the color, but I like the punched cap toe much better. Plus, the last (Simpson) fits me very well.

I have not been on the official website. These were picked up at the Carmina shop in Barcelona.

Both boots were in stock in my size. The black boots are similar in fitting to my Edward Green's..Snug.

 

Black tall boots were €400

 

The shorter Burgundy boots were €425 (not sure why they are more expensive than the taller black boots as 

both were calf leather)

 

The finishing immense - as good as Crocketts Handgrade....and a notch below EG.

There was another shop called Mayol - selling Carmina's for €275 - but he had limited stock.

Well, I probably need to perform more penance because after buying the shoes I e-mail my sizing information in for a Meermin MTO group buy that I had been planning to join once I determined my sizing. I'm telling myslf that it's something completely different because those shoes won't arrive for months and months...
