I remember that you guys mentioned a while ago that you'll receive a new dark brown suede oxford this fall. How is this model different compared to the Suede Allstar model you had in stock?

post #3335 of 24347

Do you think you will ever have a restock the Carmina suede chukka in dark chocolate and sandy suede? I missed out on these and while I like the tobacco version, enjoy these versions better.

We'll stock a brown suede Chukka, but at this moment I have not decided on the exact make up. It will probably be launched sometime during October or November.

Alex/Patrick/Gabriel:

Any chance of stocking a tobacco suede shoe, any style?

And I believe you said the Enzo wholecut is due for a Fall restock?

Just received Carmina GMTO winter boots, thanks guys from the Skoaktiebolaget.

 

Anybody else got his pair? Want to know opinion, cause having troubles to express mine. I would say Carmina did their job on 3+ from 5 possible and that's why:

 

First impression was good. Really love the leather on the vamps and toes, the color, the welt.

The fur is strange, my teddy bear 40 years ago had the same. Better than on Gallways, much worse than on Santonis. Hope it's warm.

 

Then noticed the tough shafts. No, the appearance is good, i would say reminds me llama leather, but only till you touch it.

Being soft on the vamp and toes, the leather on the shafts feels like plastic. 

I wonder why the leather there is different, was that the idea?

Is this the result of those problems with the grained leather supply? Let's see how it will age, can't wear it for another 4-5 months.

 

Fit is strange, definitely my size, good width, but a lot of space above the foot in the vamp plus unexpectedly low instep.

Look on the pics below, I got he NST boots on the Soller in the same size, and nothing similar. Don't believe this is because of suede on NST.

 

Anyway, these are good winter boots, not as warm or refined as my winter Santonis, but less expensive anyway.

Spacey vamps

 

These folds on the instep remaining doesn't matter do I stay or sit.

 

Compare with NST boots on the Soller.

Are you kidding me? These were supposed to have commando soles not these victory soles. This was our agreement. I am beyond being pissed off, Carmina really is bullshitting here. I will be returning mine as soon as I see them.

Sdolina you have no idea how slippery those soles are especially in the snow. The snow catches between those ridges and that heel becomes like a blade on the skate. it is a disaster waiting to happen I am really pissed off.

@sdolina

Is that the Frankenstitch boot on Soller? How did you size it compared to Oscar or Rain?

Nice boot, shame about the soles. What size are these?
post #3341 of 24347
Laufer, not to say that you are right or wrong about the slipperiness of the victory soles, but I do own a pair of Carmina derby boots with commando soles and they are also quite slippery in snow and ice as well. Carmina's boots are definitely on the fashion side of the spectrum and not so much meant to be worn as functional working wear. Of course, I purchase all of my shoes knowing exactly this smile.gif

Recently Carmina has been screwing up their MTOs. First the Tobacco suede and now this...

And they need to be stepping up their game. Meermin is crushing them lately

Like mgd83 said, Commando soles aren't worth shit in the snow/ice either, but I would be annoyed all the same.

The grain difference is pretty apparent. It doesn't look that bad on the boot...like the contrast was part of the design. However, I think it looks terrible on the longwing. They couldn't use the better grain piece for both the vamp and sides (and avoid a visible seam)? The quality of the scotch grain boot I had from Carmina last year was pretty good, and all sections matched.
