Which Carmina model number / last is this? Looks amazing
Looks like a 10085 on the Simpson. I sold one in black on here a few months ago here.
All--I am trying to put together a GMTO for a rain last shortwing boot through Skoak...the details are considered final
Style: Shortwing Boot
Eyelets: 4 eyelets & 4 hooks
Sole: "500" sole with Dainite bottom (the 500 has a slim mid-layer...this option that is between a single and double sole...essentially a 1.5 sole)
Leather: Dark Cognac Cordovan
Price: about USD $720
If you are interested please PM me.
Here is an example of a Rain lasted shortwing boot
Actually the Derby and the Blucher are two different shoes. there is a subtle, yet important detail in the uppers (info here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blucher_shoe)
But look at the difference in the cuts of leather between the following two shoes
The top is a blucher and is made from a single piece of leather, where as the bottom is a derby and typically made from 3 pieces (excluding the tongue). Derby is originally a British shoe style, and blucher is Prussian. Why exactly America has adopted blucher to refer to all open throat shoes, not quite sure.
