They really do look plain black. I guess it's just the cloudy weather. It felt like it was 5PM when it was only noon. I'm waiting for the sun to come out so I can quickly slip them on and take some pics of the navy, but no Mr. Sun at all.

Here's my navy shell Carmina (sold, sadly).. Is this accurate? Or darker?

 

Inside, artificial lighting

 

 

Outside, shade

 

Outside, sun.

It looks quite accurate actually. I need to wear them a lot more for the patina to come out though like yours in the sun pic.

 

Here's one at a lighter time of day indoors in front of the window. Still cloudy as hell. Actually just stopped raining when I took that pic.

 

Actually these look quite black too except with slightly more navy. I think I just need to let my shoes age a tiny bit, I think they're just a bit darker due to my recent shine session, navy cream and wax though my naked eye perceives them as a bit lighter and more navy than black in real life.

That's so difficult to differentiate between until you're out in the sun. Just wows me

Face it. Those punks sold you black shoes and coined them as navy. 

"He wanted navy but all we have are black."

"Re-badge the box."

My first pair of Carminas - plain captoe in dark brown suede from The Armoury 3 years ago. Still my faves and still the only Simpsons that fit me. The sole edge needs some love I know...

What last did you get/where did you get them? (Haven't visited this thread in a while)

 

Brown dubmonks are on my "if I see them like new on a good sale, I will pick them up for sure" list.

You chose wisely. These are exactly what I want in my next shoes. I have some Peal & Co suedes that don't feel right. I've got all my bases covered (for the most part) and decided Carmina Simpsons are what I want. They beat out EG 888, Peal & Co, Carmina Inca, Loake 026F Last... I can go all night dancing at a wedding (serious dancing, not drunk white boy dancing) and then the next day as well, and I'm not that sore.
