The color will be Dark Cognac Shell (picture on right) with Brown Dainite Sole.

I wish you were doing it with a double leather sole. How long will you leave this open? Gotta decide whether I can live with dainite.

I'm on the same boat as you but other participants favored the Brown Danite sole. 

Im leaving it open till Wednesday evening.

Possibly in October. Maybe Loden Suede? Spice (Reddish/ Burnt Orange) Suede?

Ill keep you posted ;)

I'd like to second a vote for a suede chukka. I'd really like to see either the 905 5 eyelet chukka in suede on the Soller last. Or, similar to a chukka, I'd also be really interested in a suede rendition of the 10016 on the Soller last. The spice suede would be good.

I always tend to gravitate to something a little more traditional. 5 eyelet might be a little much (i.e. a pain to get into). But 3 might be great.

 

Pictures of the suede?

post #530 of 4341
Perhaps, but the 5 eyelet will be far more secure on the foot. Not sure how much more a pain they are to get into.....


Picture of the spice suede here.

I'm not completely sold on it. I'm thinking snuff suede.


Here's the 905 on the rain last (I've never seen it on Soller, but would like to).




This is the 10016 (not sure of the last)



And the 10016 on Soller

post #531 of 4341

The 5 eyelet actually looks pretty good. I take back my reservations. What are all the suede choices?

post #532 of 4341
I don't know what different options are available, but I would be in for the snuff, sand or spice (in that order).

Number one choice of model and last would be 905 on Forest or Soller.

Second choice would be 10016 on Forest or Soller.

The vast majority of Carmina chukkas seem to be made up on the sleek chiseled lasts (Rain, Simpson). I'm looking for something more casual (but not as casual as Alden's chukkas).

Any interest out there?

Thoughts on a navy shell balmoral boot MTO?

Soller sounds good to me. Prefer the 905 as well.

 

Mine would be Noix (awesome and unique), snuff and sand.

post #535 of 4341
Excellent. Do you mean noix suede in snuff color would be your first choice? Noix is the type of suede correct?

post #536 of 4341
Disregard that, I see that Noix appears to be the color. I like it. I'll be very happy to put Noix at the top of my list.

So, any takers for a carmina noix suede 905 model 5 eyelet chukka on the soller last with (?) soles?
post #537 of 4341
I'd be in for soles and trim just like this model.

Do you think the storm is better than flat? I could be happy with storm.

post #539 of 4341
I'd probably be happy with either. But I think my top choice would be a flat welt and close heel.
post #540 of 4341

The ones you posted had a storm welt, but that sounds good to me.
