    [​IMG] I received these boots today, and I cannot say enough good things about Skoak's customer service. From the free FedEx shipping to the excellent packaging, I could not be more pleased. Top-notch all the way around.

    Received these in the mail today from Skoak..Carmina MTO from a couple months back. I have to say they were definitely worth the wait.

    I just got mine too. +1 for nice finishing by Carmina. Glad we locked these up before the price hike.

    My brown suede captoe MTOs greeted me this morning as I finished my coffee. This is my first pair of Carminas and they will get their first wear tomorrow. For now I'll say that Carmina's finishing and Skoak's service both live up to their very high reputations, the Rain last was made for my foot, and @Darkside et al designed a great shoe. Very pleased with these.

    Fantastic. I've been slow to warm to Jodhpurs but I can't imagine a nicer pair than these. What's the colour designation of the brown pair?

    Skoak is taking a page out of Nike's book and building up hype. And it's working. Wallet ready.

    Buckles are the same as on Barker Black.
    But maybe the picture represents a generic teaser rather than an actual clue [​IMG]

    Does the shoe tree give anything away?

    I'm a F on the 73 or a E on the Mh71. I'd be in if we did either of those.
