Carmina Shoes : Reviews, Sizing, Photos and More - Page 491

post #7351 of 9598
Okay, so I love this makeup that Skoak has going on. Just gorgeous to my eyes. But I can't envision exactly how I would wear them, as I generally don't wear lighter coloured footwear during the fall / winter months where tall boots are seasonally appropriate.

Any suggestions on how these might be paired?

Yes, rain. I had to send them back as I don't think Rain works for me at all - heel slippage vastly understated how loose they were in back. Maybe I should try a 9.5 but it seems weird to need a 9.5 when I am usually 10 or 10.5 in the case of EG or GG. 10 didn't work for me in Uetam, but in the wrong direction - wanted to try a 10.5 but the Armoury didn't have them

Interested on ideas as well.

I'm awaiting an MTO in gray suede... I'm thinking colored trous (navy/dark red/caramel) and the top half would be a slightly darker version of gray or light colors... not too dark though, just enough to differentiate it from the shoes.

UG thanks - the PTB version is very handsome as well.

Thanks, gents!

They came in the usual Carmina box with bags and the standard foam and red paper/black straws combo in the shoes. The box is marked model 922 and Rain. I know someone else on the forum ordered a pair with a description on Farfetch that included one model number but got a shoe on a different last. In my case, the model number on Farfetch matched Carmina's.

Austerity Brogues from yesterday- they're not this dark in real life, I had an HDR setting "on" on my camera.

Fantastic shoes! May I ask where you bought them?

I don't know anything about this, but aren't they doing that to burn any loose threads?

Very nice. Are these from us? I have not seen any other retailers stocking them in an antiqued version.

Hey guys, quick question:

I currently own one pair of Carminas, a pair of balmorals (Ellison) on the Rain last. These fit beautifully. Would you recommend going for the same size on the Forest?

I'm currently looking at Skoak's CXL brogue boot.
