I still haven't received them yet and Betty rarely sends pictures before shipping it out. I promise to post pics here as soon as it arrives :)

Just as a reference, here are the 973 boots in navy shell and 532 longwings in dark cognac shell

For now unfortunately.....I will post here as soon as it changes for the better :)

What about cognac? is it light or dark?

The batch is the darker I've heard, similar to our longwings pictures posted above.

Navy shell tanker boots with Commando sole MTO!!!

We can do either Rain Last or Soller Last (like picture above)

We have total of 4 interests now!

would love to see the ruby shell - any examples you have young? from carmina or otherwise?
post #1536 of 2836
Td,

Search function is your friend. Examples or Carmina ruby cordovan abound on this thread, Carmina thread and other retailers.

Thanks Steve - sounds like a winner to me - I'll look forward to your pics.

A inverse V-cap toe in ruby shell like this will be awesome

Heres my Ruby Captoe boots. Sorry for the poor lighting. They have gone from a bright ruby luster to a more of a oxblood color which I am super happy about.

I will say Ruby was super bright when I got them and I wasnt sure how they would be or age.

I would say something in suede like a captoe in suede would be something I am missing in my wardrobe

These are beautiful and lightened up nicely!
