I'd much prefer a jumper to a chukka in this material.

I hope Steve can get us a sample pic of Carmina kudu in brown.
That's 3 for chukkas. 3 more to go :-)

Id happily have Dainite or York too.

That said I disagree with the assessment that Victory is heavy. From the side and from the top the profile is actually quite slim. There is a margin from the sole edge to where the ridges are making the ridges quite invisible from the side or top. YMMV.

Victory soles are NOT heavy. They are dense, but so thin they cannot possibly have significant weight.

This particular Jodhpur with sde strap going downward is only available in Rain/Simpson/Alcudia lasts only according to Carmina...

They can make Forest last ones with just one single thicker strap on top (not pointing downwards)

Not Carmina but some concept shots: COLOR

Again not Carmina but the concept for the design of the shoe STYLE:

Bonora%20Scotch%20Grain%20Cap-Toe%20Derby%20425D%20(2a8).JPG

 

Thoughts?

 

DL-

 

The Alt-Wien is only available in Forest last if im not mistaken...not avail in Detroit for now at least :(

We can always do EEE fit on the Forest last as well.

Alt-Wien in Forest may be interesting? Any special leathers to go with this Steve? Scotch grain or LLama or some other grain?

FWIW, when I was at the SF Proper Kit show in November, they did have multiple [different] Kudu swatches, as I recall.  Maybe 3 in total. I don't remember much else about it, but I think one of them was darker than the natural fleshy color that we are accustom to seeing from Carmina.

 

Edit: I think this Llubi boot in the middle is what I'm talking about...

Maybe do a Kudu Jodhpur on Forest or Robert? With scotchgrain straps?

I don't have the brown kudu swatch here with me but that llubi boots bakes uploaded is indeed the brown kudu.

We can certainly doe 3 eyelet rain last kudu with dainite sole!

I think we have 3 interests at this time? @watchidiot @laufer @Pbayvip

I am certainly interested but I want to know more about it and try them on myself first :)

I will probably visit them first and see them in person before ordering

Thank you!
