6. Honestly I knew you were going to pickup the 6.5 so I considered buying them earlier since I knew I could sell them to you if they didn't fit. However i didn't like having heel slip on the hoves so I went smaller. It's closer to glove like.

twinsies! Hope you get the right fit! The Sinatras should be amazing! I just couldn't get myself to buy EG or G&G in black... I love the burnishing too much and will save the black wholecut for Vass' new last smile.gif

Was on the fence on buying trees, oh well, that solved my thinking...
post #4236 of 23830
I hear you, honestly I don't wear suits a lot so I have little use for black but I'm slowly getting over my hatred for wearing black, especially during the evening. Also, to be honest, I don't think I've ever seen a wholecut that looked better than the Sinatra and it didn't seem like any other color was more appropriate for a wholecut than Black. Just love the shape and 6 eyelets. If I got something else I'd want to upgrade later on anyway so it's worth the 200 premium to me to get what I really want.

Lol well be twins on a lot of shoes. Shannon, galway, dover, Beaulieu.

Edit:I would also prefer to see commando soles instead of danite, but again if the price is lower for this order I'D be in either way.
Edit2:does that include shipping to the US or is shipping extra?

It probably will be the same for the speed hooks. my jumper boots from skoak were the same. As for the soles, I'm guessing the majority will prefer the single dainite as it is more of a dress boot. And shipping to the US would be an extra of 300 SEK.

Those are the only two I own shoes of and have experience with, don't know how Haas or Zonta and other's are with this. Since it's a boot I'd like it to take rain and shitty weather in a decent way.

This is a really good question honestly. Could the awesome guys @Skoaktiebolaget enlighten us on this. Thanks!

I would like to propose a gmto for the Carmina 80092 balmoral boot on the elusive Robert last.

 

I'll email Skoaktiebolaget once we reach 6 interested members. 

 

 

Currently interested members:

 

For museum:  @laufer @itraxx,

For Dark Brown: @appoooh

Members who don't mind either colour (I'm assuming): @fllick, @JARB, @Dieg0

 

Potentially interested members:

 

@j ingevaldsson@aglose, @appoooh(depending on pictures or tannery of museum calf or maybe not at al)

 

Interested members please quote and add your name in.Thank you. 


 

Price: 3120 sek for either brown calf or brown museum calf.

Specs: 80092 balmoral boot 

eyelets: 10: 6 blind 4 speed hooks

colour: dark brown, museum calf  (I'm fine with either and will go with the majority) 

Soles: Dainite rubber soles

 

The boot looks like this

Perhaps that one could have a leather sole?

So how many members are interested in Rober last boot in dark brown calf shaft and dark brown suede on leather soles?

Very similar to this archived Skoaktiebolaget stock model? Please e-mail sales@skoab.se with your SF nick, PayPal e-mail and UK size in Robert and we'll try and organize this GMTO ASAP. We have been wanting to restock this make up anyway so it will be a great project. 

 

I would be in on this on a rubber sole. Whats the status of the GMTO?

I might be in as well. Would also like to know if it is Ilcea's museum calf or not before deciding.

This indeed is very good question and I would like an answer too.

@Skoaktiebolaget Do you have any photos to show what brown the upcoming Carmina suede double monks are? Are they as dark as these  from The Nordic Fit (also on the Inca last)?

post #4244 of 23830
Been meaning to buy the tobacco Carmina chukka for ever and now their gone. Looks like the impending price increase threw everyone into a buying frenzy...
post #4245 of 23830

Just picked up my Carmina balmoral boots from SkoAB! At first try they feel wonderful, much softer than I expected them to be.

 

I do however prefer the previous colour scheme more than this one; there was more of a contrast between the calf and grain on the older version. To remedy this, I'm thinking about trying to make the grain darker on my boots and that brings my to the following question: what polish do you guys recommend (from Burgol)? Dark brown, black?
