Beautiful shoes! Can you elaborate on the difference in instep between the Carmina Rain in 9UK and the Meccariello in 9.5E? The laces don't close on the Rain for me... was hoping going a half size larger on the Meccariellos would eliminate that problem, but sounds like it might not.
Thanks. From what I recall, the Carmina 9 instep is slightly lower than the Meccariello 9.5. I have a pretty high instep, but my lacing isn't as open as Swede's. I'll get a photo wearing tomorrow.
