    Carmina Shoes - Definitive Thread (reviews, advice, sizing, etc...)

    The whole cedar vs beech, lacquer vs none debate has been thoroughly exhausted. There's never been any evidence that one approach produces significantly better outcomes than the rest. The main function is to stretch the shoe back into shape after wearing, and the best outcomes are from trees...

    Carmina Shoes - Definitive Thread (reviews, advice, sizing, etc...)

    Ooh, goody! Rain D's heel and instep are just a little more voluminous than Simpson, but Simpson's forefoot is wider and more symmetric than Rain D. Getting the best of both in a really narrow last would be great for my foot shape. And they sent me a DM; nice.

    How does this work? Because I'd really love a Rain D toe and Simpson heel.

    I don't happen to look like a clown in my RMs, but they are 9F too so I hope this comparison with Carmina's 8.5UK Sineu is useful to you.

    Carmina Shoes - Definitive Thread (reviews, advice, sizing, etc...)

    So back on topic ... are you out definitively, or waiting to see once your MTOs arrive? From my limited sample size I get the impression that they take a little more care with shell, given the cost of wastage.

    Carmina Shoes - Definitive Thread (reviews, advice, sizing, etc...)

    The "black friend" defense to which he refers means a person tries to disparage an ethnicity whilst claiming impartiality due to personal connections to that ethnicity that would conventionally reflect a positive view. Eg having a Spanish girlfriend, Spanish heritage. Spain once had an empire...

    True, but it's not like it's a whole size difference...

    Narrower metatarsals though.

    Carmina Shoes - Definitive Thread (reviews, advice, sizing, etc...)

    Y'all gonna hate me, because I'm in the EU so no customs troubles, I don't need a remake, they're black shell, and I received my order before @George Red to boot. You've been warned. So a few months ago I picked up some Sineu penny loafers in order to test the last so I could have the...

    Haven't seen a chisel toe on a PTB before. I feel ... confused? Is that a brownish Rubi or a reddish Armagnac by the way?

    RM Williams Boots - Everything You Wanted to Know

    No idea. Their prices weren't ever as discounted as Steve's, from what I know. I remember buying discounted RMWs from him for AUD400, when bootsonline started with a 5 and RMW's official retail was $600. Obviously they're not cancelling their accounts with department stores etc, and also the...

    RM Williams Boots - Everything You Wanted to Know

    Looks like Nungar's no longer stocking RMW. I received this email today: It is with a heavy heart that we write to announce to you and our tens of thousands of customers in Australia and throughout the world that, after an over 40 year association with R.M.Williams, Nungar will no longer be a...
