I did make up a sh*t load of awesome new models this weekend in Amsterdam but I forgot about 'em all. But we'll definitely stock something in croc soon. Remember that we have an Adelaide coming in soon in partial croc.
Yes, just waiting for one member to confirm size, hoping to send the order tomorrow.
These are a mix of materials, but it's probably better to use Carmina brown boots as a starting point for colour reference: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Unfortunately none of those pictures are very representative, mostly because we have now changed our settings when shooting to be more IRL-like. Also, a few of those photos are of Horween Chromexcel and one in Cognac Cordovan.
This is a good shot of what most "vegano marron" (what we call "brown calf" in English) shoes look like, although you have to realize that there might be color variations between different batches, this is just the way it is with these types of products. The Carmina Chelsea boot posted by RogerP is actually also "vegano marron" but a dark batch.
If one wants something close to Edward Green Dark Oak, that would be vegano marron antique. But the finish is much better in an Edward Green shoe, of course. Please do not expect the same superb finish for a Carmina pair, totally different price level after all. The Berkeley posted earlier is from a light batch of Dark Oak, it's usually darker. This is a very good example of a Dark Oak in natural light and after som wear, from @gusvs :
Carmina vegano marron antiqued:
I don't even think they'll be that expensive. Crocodile isn't priced extremely, gator is. I've read somewhere that Carmina charges about 20% more for crocodile than they do for shell. Since it's only a small piece, I think the pricing should be quite reasonable, considering they can easily use scraps and hides with faults that can't be used for wholecuts. If they keep a realistic surcharge that is.
If we were to stock something in croc it would be about 6700 SEK (~820 USD ex VAT) compared to 3400 SEK calf or suede (~420 USD ex VAT).
