Those 100+ year old black calf/loden suede button closure mid boots that belonged to Jose's grandfather are badass.

I'm still a little shy on pulling the trigger on the loafers, scared of extra charges.

It'll Arrive with USPS pretty much 0% chance for fees

Thanks. I'm all ready to pull the trigger now. Just hoping 10.5UK in Inca last = 10.5UK in Uetam last. I couldn't find much on that in the Carmina sizing thread. Hopefully the gentlemen at skoaktiebolaget can reassure me once more.

Thanks MrJester, I'm going to copy paste here from our e-mail conversation for others to read about the fit, I hope you don't mind.

In regards of fit; Inca and Rain are wide lasts. Inca is the widest Carmina last. Uetam fits very similar to Simpson, which is a slightly narrow last. Some people size up on Simpson. But then again some people, including myself, size down in loafers because they rest differently on the foot.

I sent you am email on this as well but, when you open, I'll take a half measure up. I've read a few cases on people returning the shoe because it was too tight.

Now hurry and take my money. biggrin.gif

Agreed! Would actually love a pair myself. A remake would be awesome, maybe of the black/loden suede or saddle shell with dark brown buttons, or even black shell bottom/saddle upper.

Carmina don't make button boots anymore, you guys have to wait until the Bonafè button boots arrive. smile.gif

Colour for button boots is Black Calf/Grey Suede. We will have one pair of button boots in Brown Calf/Brown Suede as well in UK 9.5, this was supposed to be for display but of course if anyone is interested... Price is 6500 SEK (5200 SEK ex VAT). There will be the possibility to do MTOs (+15% of base model). Minimum requirement for a group MTO is only 3 pairs. nod[1].gif

Sounds awesome! 

 

I'm curious about those black/grey shoes, but really unsure how they should be worn. Do you have any recommendations for what would be a good pairing?
