Can we see some action shots?

From my Instagram today. Was chatting with a lad from the Royal Guards.

Holy moly!  How does this last compare to say, some Carmina's?

Wow. Beautiful boot.

I'm in trouble. Too redundant with a Gold Utah Galway on the way???

Edit. After looking at the shot on IG....I have room for both. Fantastic shade and grain, too. Uh Oh.

That depends. GG last are pretty uniform, the same cannot be said for Carmina lasts.
Which Carmina lasts do you have in mind?

I take the same size in
Oscar, Soller, Rain and GG06.

Just wondering what Carmina last it fits closest to.  I take the same size in rain, Oscar, forest and robert but size down a half size for soller. 

 

If it's long and wide, like soller, I'll side down a half from my normal uk size.  If it's normal in length and width, like Oscar, forest and Robert, I would take my normal uk sizing.

I would not recommend sizing down. Stay with you usual UK size, a little bit of extra space can be easily rectified with thicker socks and boots are especially forging for this. If you size down and the boot is too short, you are out of luck.

Good point.  They only time I've had an "issue" with going my normal UK size is when the last is long and wide, like Soller.  All other normal lasts, even narrow ones, would work going with my normal UK sizing. 

 

@Leaves, I'll shoot Gabe an email about fitting advice shortly, thanks!

I am going for it. How about you?

On the other hand. Do you have a kudu leather in your collection yet? I am organizing GMTO for kudu shoes.
