    Are you talking about Steve's GMTO?

    I'm in it as well. I think that is "dark cognac", while ours is "cognac". In addition, the soles are different as well: double leather sole vs danite.

    Would have purchased this pair if I missed out on Steve's GMTO.

    No biggie, can always switch over to danite when the double leather sole wears thin.

    Also wanted to share this other pic from Carmina's Instagram, just because the cognac looks so good!

    Not my pic. I am asking whether anyone can identify the last. Both pics were from Carmina's instagram.

    Both pics? or just the bottom?

    Well, I guess maybe I'll ask him what last they are, since nobody else can identify.

    Pretty sure you can find the original post in the Epaulet thread, just by going through the thread image gallery.

    I want to share my fabulous experience ordering shoes from the Carmina store in Spain. I was surfing the Carmina site last week and found some shoes that I could not resist. I ordered them last Wednesday (first time order) and they arrived today. Wow, spectacular shoes and service. Very reasonable shipping charge and no extra broker custom fees[​IMG]

    Congrats on the purchase! Your duties bill might come a few weeks later, though.

    I sure hope you're kidding! Right????
    I purchase some trousers from Italy a few weeks ago. They shipped UPS (I despise UPS [​IMG]) and when they arrived the agent asked for an extra $86 for broker fees??. [​IMG]
    I was shocked. Never happened before.
