    I am thankful to anyone that is adventurous enough to try something new, that might in some way help me envision, or decide, what i want for myself in the future...

    What are you talking about?? I never said I didn't like them. In fact, I invested a tidy sum in a pair of Santoni Limited Editions with that same exact "long stitched norwegian front". Personally, I DO like the style, although it is decidely not an "everyday" look, it is different and expressive. Bravo to the buyer.

    It is fair for me to point out that there is definitely some love for certain brands regardless of the style they put out. Take out the St. C. label and it is questionable if there would be the same responses.

    If you don't like how the shoes look...thats fine...you don't have to buy them haha...everyone has that freedom of choice.

    I do like their appearance...their flare...and intrigue...as they are something different...which is what attracted me to them in the first place.

    i think that they will look great with odd trousers and chinos...

    And this style of model has been made by many other Italian makers and well received..such as Roberto Ugolini and Riccardo Bestetti...

    I tend to hold a wooden ruler flat over the edge of the toe cap before flexing them for the first time... that way (more often than not) the creasing takes hold just below the cap-stitch, and stays out of the toe cap. Works only for leather soled shoes though.

    Those Carmina boots have such a nice, deep shade of green it puts the rest to shame. Are they Horween shell?
