I haven't done that to these shoes yet but that's the plan for tonight and I'll post some updated pics soon.

how do you like the fit. are they tight? in hindsight, would you have preferred a captoe?

+1.

What size are you?

That split toe monk is interesting.

Agreed, save that I would substitute "interesting" with "gorgeous".

Interested to hear what others think.

I have flat feet as well and wear Rain, Soller, and Forest. I assume Inca would be perfectly fine for me, but I haven't really dived into that last yet.

I usually wear 6.5 in Rain, Forest, and Soller.

I believe Soller is the boot equivalent of Inca.

Thank you very much.  Gorgeous is the perfect word to describe Carmina shoes and boots. nod[1].gif

Late night at the office.

Breaking in first pair of carminas. I am smitten by them, though my creasing is just below the wingtip cap line running through the peak. I hope that is as far as it goes. These fit great but run longer than I would like in length.

Ha! I was going to make the exact same comment. 

 

But I think I like the single monk split toe more.  Still on the fence.  The burgundy is awesome though.

We are going to try and get the Navy Cordovan Boot MTO finalized next week and we are thinking of doing this model in navy cordovan also.   Curious to know if people would want open or closed lacing on this model.  Please let us know what you think would look better.
