Ruby's pretty different.


Yes - Exactly. They have 10.5 US. I like looking at the "ruby" but could never wear.

I hope I don't get "booted"...from the forum for this...

 

STP has these babies from Tricker's for $335! (with current 35% off coupon)

I'm getting closer to convincing myself that I can wear those ruby boots and pulling the trigger. They're phenomenal in person.

It wouldn't solve the speed hook issue, but it's kind of too bad that Ironminded didn't get a pair of the Greeley in burgundy shell MTO. Those would be great for a wedding. (I think this photo is the burgundy version.)

someone is dumping some nice stuff on ebay right now 9.5D - 10D sizes. Prices look pretty good and when is the last time you saw a cigar cordovan 6 eyelet chukka??

I have boots w speed hooks, they have never damaged my pants. I would get them w the hooks and never look back.

The ruby and burgundy Carmina boots are amazing.

The trickers seem too casual

budapest does bring up a good point! haha


I'm with Ironminded.  The Ruby is too light and red for my taste.  Color 8 is more recently eggplant for sure, but also deeper and darker.  Nevertheless, Carmina makes a great shell shoe/boot, just a little different look than the classic American Alden.

I love the color 8 shell and agree - but, just to be clear, I was suggesting the burgundy, not the ruby. Color 8 is a deeper/richer tone - they certainly aren't the same.

I'd be uuuuuuupset if they weren't 4 sizes too big for me. Although for that price I would have bought them just to have them!

Color 8 Plaza captoe boots at LS. I'm wishing I could justify them but ordered the tanker boot and have the York sole version of the Carminas I was just suggesting. Need some non boots next.

FedEx Home delivers Tue-Sat, vs office delivers Mon-Fri.  I've tried, there's no way to bypass and pick up yourself.  What I normally do is have it rerouted to a FedEx Office center that's open 7 days a week, that way I never miss my delivery.

 

See Ya,
