That is the brand of leather soles that Carmina uses. It's also what Allen Edmonds use on their shell shoes. It's a high quality brand.
Info about them can be found here.
Thanks, really helpful. I had also emailed Skoak and they concurred with both of you - go up a half-size in the Simpson as compared to the Rain.
@JezeC, just to clarify, I'm a 9.5 in both the 5 and the Barrie, but I'm E in the former and D in the latter.
That's what newspaper is for.. just shove some down in the shoe before you wear it. I hear it's all the rage in Europe!
Thank you sir. They are indeed fantastic deals. ESPECIALLY the Shell. Marked down $300+ for two wears! If that doesn't sell, I'm not all that mad. I can take it somewhere and have them stretch it just a bit and I can wear it to the more formal days at work. I'd just prepare some cap-toes for my job.
