Hey Mike a lot of great mockups! Just wondering when the ETA for delivery on the Ruby Bal Boot.

Thanks!

Mike lumped it in with the other MTO pairs, which I presume are shipping with the regular stock pairs, which Mike said should come by the end of the week.

 

I. Am. Fucking. Pumped. I can't wait to wear these on campus.

How does the Forest last fit compared to the Rain last, do I need to size up or down?

Calling dibs on the first order for next summer, green loafers.

Second makeup is online! Man, I could look at this photoshop mockup all day long. This is a great concept, and thanks to everyone who put it together!

The details are:
Loden Suede Upper
Antique Brass Eyelets
Single Leather Sole with medium brown edge & flat welt

As this is on the Forest last, all sizes can be ordered in a wide fitting. And Carmina shoe trees are included, as always.

I'm seeing tons of variation on the actual shade of green that loden green suede is

this is Carmina's Loden Green suede wholecut




this is a Carmina Loden Green chukka


Another Carmina Loden Green suede:


This is a Mark Mcnairy Loden Green suede:


This is another Loden Green suede longwing


Is yours really going to be the green you've photoshopped? That doesn't seem to match what Carmina's version of Loden Green suede is

Hmm, guess that we've got some confusion with suede names and with images taken in different light. Let's disregard the McNairy stuff completely for the moment, as that's an entirely different manufacturer and suede supplier.

The three Carmina shots look to be the same color, which is kind of a pale olive. I'm not sure of Carmina's official name for this this. When I've discussed "Loden" with them, it refers to this true dark green suede. A similar color that we see from Alden. This is an actual Carmina shoe in "Loden"



My photoshopped file is a bit darker to try and represent what it looks like in real life. This image above was shot in a trade show booth, under yellow CFL lights, so it becomes slightly washed out and lightened as a result. That's the photography nerd side of me. I try to get as close an approximation as possible to the real-life appearance of the shoe, but it's not an exact science.

This is what I thought we were looking for, but I'll ask for the official name of that pale olive suede too. I can absolutely rework the makeup to offer it in that color if you guys prefer that. I'll shoot over an inquiry to Frank the Sheep as well who was coordinating this.

+1 for the RUBY SHELL RAIN LAST PTB

I second the idea for the RUBY SHELL RAIN LAST PTB as well. Look forward to ordering a pair if offered in 9UK Wide fitting.

Thanks for the update, really would prefer the color you mocked up but doesn't seem like the loden green is that green from waht I've seen

Don´t know how you could miss the pics. This is the last boots that was delayed, the first ones came six weeks ago and there was maybe two pages with posts about how light the cognac shell came out.

Anyway...here is a link to SkoAB own pics: http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/news/carmina-made-order-boots

My pair was sent today so hopefully i can wear them tomorrow icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
