Ah yes, thanks for reminding me guys. I'll build that out tomorrow - it's definitely cool to have three variants of the WWII field boot.
Tan calfskin with Carmina is actually a little confusing.
When we order Caramel, it's called "Cuero." But when we order Cognac, it's the same base leather as quero, but it's hand-dyed for a darker finish by Carmina. This has a good bit of variance from batch to batch, so it will come out all different tones.
When I order Cognac calfskin, I call it Burnished Caramel or Burnished tan.

Oh man, I LOVE THAT. So a bit of an austerity U-tip? That sounds very cool.

We can certainly do individual pairs for you as well - it's a 30% upcharge though. If 5 more guys get onto the reorder then we can put it through at the group price.

Thanks guys! And thanks to applky for floating this idea - it's going to be a great makeup!

To be safe, I'd say yes. Forest and Soller are pretty similar in width, and Soller is a little lower in the toebox, so going up a half size will ensure that it's not too narrow. And since you've got three eyes, you can lace it tighter. You can always use a tongue pad too to tighten it up if you need to as well.

Most guys drop a half size from their Barrie last size, so if you take a 10D in Barrie, then get a 9.5UK in the Oscar.

Oh sure, you've got time. The orders will be open until July 8th.
