    Here are a few photos taken from the London Lounge of the new Rain and Philadelphia2 lasted shoes from Carmina Abaladejo: Rain (the first image is done in cordovan): [​IMG] [​IMG] Philadelphia2: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Beautiful don't you think? So much better than the older, more staid designs. Now, they share the same asthetic as Edward Green, clean elegant shapes. The rest of the photos are in the London Lounge For more information regarding Abaladejo, please contact Miguel Font at: miguel AT carminashoemaker.com. I use AT instead of @ to prevent those email stealing bots.

    Thanks for posting the photos -- very nice lines to those shoes. Wish they were available here in the US.

    I think that there is an Abaladejo retailer in the U.S, don't know the name. They will not have these new lasts yet, but I think you can do a special order.

    Sorry, I don't know the price in the U.S. Do a search of the forum since I know there is at least one U.S retailer. You could also email Miguel Font. The prices are much much lower than EGreen for example.

    The only one I know of is Boyd's in Philadelphia, although I have read either here or on AA that Boyd's prices on Albaladejo are a bit high ($650 as opposed to $350 or $400 when ordered from the Paris store). I'd suggest contacting Miguel Font as T4phage has suggested.

    Great looking last. It looks very much like Edward Green's 89 to my eye.

    Yes, they are fine; also the leather and cordovan is really good looking.

    I think Tom at Leather Soul in Hawaii is taking orders at a very attractive price.
