This might be a silly (and obvious) question but how would you compare the quality of Ezno B's leather versus Carmina? Better/Worse/Same?
Thanks in advance.
Bonafe is better, IMO. But bear in mind that this is based, at present, on only a single pair of EB.
I would say that the UK 10.5 for these Austerity boots most likely will fit you well. The main difference between Carmina and Bonafè lasts is that Bonafè's lasts has a higher instep and a more generous ball width. Most people size down at least half a size from their US sizes to Bonafè's UK sizes if they have wider feet. The 363 MOD. last is generous in its fit and will feel more roomy than Soller or Queens from Carmina.
@FrankCowperwood: If it helps, my feet are above average width and instep with a narrow heel. This is my sizing:
UK10 in Soller and Rain. I'm typically a 9.5UK, but need the extra half size for width.
363Mod UK10: more voluminous in instep and slightly more length than I need. The width is plentiful. I probably could've sized down to 9.5UK.
