I wonder if someone signed up for the Alfred Sargent/AFPoS shell bal boot MTO? Would be a nice surprise to hear that it's a go!

yeah, i would say they are very comprable to one another. IME, G&G seems to uses a softer, more comfortable leather so the G&Gs fit me better. both are on the narrow side

My apologies NAMOR this etiquette violation but please could you tell me how much those set you back - I'm looking for some Bal Boots and am a little cash strapped and think Carmina might be my best bet quality to cash.

 

EDIT: Nevermind, their online shop is now up and wow I had no idea their shoes were so damn well priced.

Carmina, hands down, delivers the best value for shell Cordovan boots. I knew they made great stuff but this pair blew me away. I have a G&G shell bal boot in the works and I'll be hard pressed to find a worthy ($800) difference between the two pairs

one very visible and functional difference is the pull tab.  G&G/EG has the pull tab at the back in leather while your Carmina appears to have fabric pull tab at the top.

Those look great NAMOR. Try rubbing some cream on the underside of the eyelets/tongue to allay some of the sqweaking.

Pull tabs, hate them. EG, G&G, GMP, Carmina, leather, canvas, they all suck. I find myself adjusting my pants 3-5 times a day. Tempted to just chop them off. Somebody save me from myself

That's correct. I may have them removed and sewn to the inner lining so that they no longer push up my pants
