Ah...well then if that's the case then I would be open to a dark brown calf but I will get with Steve (or wait until he posts here) to see what his comments are

Other option is to go with their tan calf and perhaps darken it or request burnishing on it to reach the shade. I think it would be great f something close to that color could be produced to tide over the shell shortage.

I agree!  That cognac color is mesmerizing and down right beautiful!  Keeping the fingers crossed that Steve can get it in calf

Steve can confirm, but I haven't see a calf shoe from Carmina with a color the same as the dark cognac shell. Their cognac calf is much different. Their calf colors that seem closest to me are natur vegano and natur marron.

I believe Steve's new captoe shoes are marron. And I was actually thinking of a 973 version of this (sole to be determined). It's darker than the cognac shell, but I prefer it to vegano.



I believe this is vegano.

^ I agree that if they don't have a cognac, or similar, color then the color of the above captoe would be my next choice.  Let's see what Steve can get for us

 

I do like that captoe...so much so that Steve already has my size on order :)

Hi everyone!

 

MTO updates

 

#1.  973 cognac shell boots with clean stitch cap toe - Rain

We will be placing the order for the boots tonight, so we can get in on the queue for the next cognac shell batch! 

Please let me know if you are in if you still have not confirmed with me ;)

 

#2. Five eyelet chukka (pictured below) with darker tobacco suede - Rain

 

 

 

It looks like 2 interest with leather sole preferred and 1 interest with dainite.

@laufer @Burton @WiredandTired maybe the Tomir Sole for the best of both worlds? what do you think?

 

I am in (no matter which sole) as well and I have another interested customer via email.

 

@golfinz @Mr. Six

Love the idea of the 973s on Calf! However as many have already chimed in, Cognac shell is really unique and no other brown shade calf offered by carmina really matches up.

As Mr Six have mentioned above there is currently natur marron (natural brown, or we call it dark brown calf) and vegano marron (medium hand burnished brown calf)

 

Cheers!

@Mr. Six @steveyoo1983

 

Thanks for the clarification Steve.

 

Six, I'm in for the same boot as the v1 973 (pref cap toe) but in dark brown calf on either the diante or tomir sole.  Thoughts?

What does it mean darker tobacco suede? is there a lighter version of tobacco suede? I can go with dainite soles too, tomir sole does not appeal to me much. How many people we have?

Sorry about that I meant darker than the picture below I posted. Just Tobacco Suede.

Dainite sounds good!

 

@Baked Potato @laufer and myself is in for sure (3)

@Burton @WiredandTired will you two gents be okay with dainite?

Let me check back with the other non SF customer as well.

Steve but what is that color on the picture? I thought it was tobacco suede. I am interested in tobacco suede that is lighter than snuff, this tobacco suede should have some yellow in it. Just like than one on the picture you posted? Are we talking about the same thing?

I included some pictures below of SkoAB's new tobbaco suede chukka, so you can get a visual of how it looks like.

Suede is really difficult to photograph but on that picture above it looks like tobacco has some redish tones.

I feel there is just no use for leather soled boots unless one lives in a country with only one season: summer.

Yes the tobacco is the one on top.

Okay I think I mis-used the work 'darker' but they are more 'rich in color?'

 

Here is another picture of the tobacco suede I posted few posts back :)

 

The unipair chukka below is snuff if im not mistaken (the lightning / photoshop maybe makes it seem like light than snuff)

Yes, tobbaco does have some reddish tones. I actually like that, gives it more of a "unique" color.

 

I actually tried on those boots and snapped a quick photo. Its quality may not be the best, but I'm still including it below as it might be of some help.

I certainly agree! :) 

Especially in our Swedish four season climate. It may be usuable in countries with less wet falls/winters, but certainly not up here in the north.
