^ I'm game for purple as well. Have it on my copper suede Meermin double monks and it rocks. Navy and dark green are also sweet. Personally would take burnt orange if I got to choose.

I'm in on the dark brown chukka as well. I too don't care much about the sole type or the lining color. I just need a dress-up, dress-down, beat-'em-up-a-bit chukka. I think this darker shade will be perfect for khakis, medium grey trousers, and raw denim alike. Also, the last should be a nice balance between office and weekend.

I've been craving such a boot for years; I'm excited to see it finally happening. Thanks Steve!

my thoughts exactly on the boot; the more i think about it, the more wear i can imagine myself getting out of it. pretty pumped for this puppy

as for sole, not to beat a dead horse or anything, but i think single leather is the way to go. since this is a suede boot (and thus will probably tend to stay in the closet more when the weather sucks), i don't think we need to go dainite. and i agree that double leather would be too stiff.

steve -- what are the edge options? i'm not too familiar with that part of the game

Question on fitment .. on rain last I wear 10.5 UK very good fit ever so slightly tight on width on the right foot.

I assume Simpson would be too tight at 10.5 .. maybe go 11 UK would it fit well ? Just seeing if anyone can offer some insight here.

Suede is my go to in rain, I think it is for quite a few people as well, not part of the mto but a little bit of suede spray goes a long way

^. ah fair enough, shouldn't have assumed.. probably been too long since I've lived somewhere with rain. also just watched the seinfeld where jerry ruins his suede jacket because he won't turn it inside out in front of elaine's dad

This is just my 2 cents (and I understand all feet/ one's tolerance/ way they bend their foot is all different) but I have a semi wide foot and I wear my Rain a little snug at 5.5 UK. But they end up quite nice after few weeks when the corks start to sink in a little and the leather stretches out a little. For Simpson, I used to wear 5.5 UK as well but it was just way too snug for me and now when I wear 6 UK in Simpson (or Uetam for that matter) it works perfect! no heel slipage for me skinny heel either on the extra length :) Jump in! this is going to be a great looking chukka!

Thank you! I think the vote currently is leaning towards Dainite at this point & Brown edge trim :)

Like fitting BMW rims on a Benz. Never figured out how someone with wide feet can wear shoes for snug feet.

Does it work on existing markdowns? So these Carminas would be down to $403 shipped with the code? If so, that's a pretty great deal!
