Alex + co.,
I'm on the cusp for the Carmina Modern Classic in Brown (from here: http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/carmina/products/carmina-modern-classic-in-brown) but it occurred to me that it looks like there's no burnishing on the toe, which seems odd (funny how that's now become a semi-standard look; or at least I've come to expect it).
Just double checking to see if that's really the case or maybe the pics aren't picking it up. I'm sure I can darken them over time but just wanted to double check what their natural state is in real life.
Appreciation in advance!
edit: I'll also ask that I'm a solid US10.5, and more like a 10.7 in my right foot (about .25" extra width in my right foot's toe area). Should I be going for a UK9.5 in these or a UK10?
The Modern Classic lacks burnishing, but the Vegano Marron has a nice depth to it that might seem to be an antiqued nuance.
As for size, may I ask what brands and lasts you have a previous experience of? In Carminas case, UK9.5 is roughly equivalent to US10.5. However, the Simpson last is snug fitting so it is not uncommon to size up half a size.
