    That depends. GG last are pretty uniform, the same cannot be said for Carmina lasts.
    Which Carmina lasts do you have in mind?

    I take the same size in
    Oscar, Soller, Rain and GG06.

    Just wondering what Carmina last it fits closest to. I take the same size in rain, Oscar, forest and robert but size down a half size for soller.

    If it's long and wide, like soller, I'll side down a half from my normal uk size. If it's normal in length and width, like Oscar, forest and Robert, I would take my normal uk sizing.

    I would not recommend sizing down. Stay with you usual UK size, a little bit of extra space can be easily rectified with thicker socks and boots are especially forging for this. If you size down and the boot is too short, you are out of luck.

    Good point. They only time I've had an "issue" with going my normal UK size is when the last is long and wide, like Soller. All other normal lasts, even narrow ones, would work going with my normal UK sizing.

    @Leaves , I'll shoot Gabe an email about fitting advice shortly, thanks!

    I am going for it. How about you?

    On the other hand. Do you have a kudu leather in your collection yet? I am organizing GMTO for kudu shoes.

    This pic pretty much has me sold. I had hoped for my GG06 Thorpe to land before making a second purchase but don't think I will be able to hold out.

    Do you plan to order stock for the store as well?

    I wonder if anyone with a Rosewood CC Galway would order? That's been on my wishlist for a while but they seem like they'd be duplicated (despite the G&G boot being golden versus red).

    Thought I would post this in the forum in case anyone else had the same question. Can we pay off mto's sooner or do we have to wait for their arrival?

    Are the G&G shoe trees lasted?

    And I'll ask in this thread just because I don't own Carmina and only one other pair of EGs... how would one size GG06 versus Alden Barrie? I wear 12D in Barrie... 12E for GG06?

    I appreciate the responses. The exchange rate doesn't really bother me asI know it will still be the best price in town or in the case the world.
