Well, I finally got my refund., but my word what a hassle. Multiple emails and a Paypal complaint.

Unless I move to Spain, I am unlikely to buy Carmina shoes again.

I really like the jumper boots from Carmina. I'm thinking about getting one (perhaps in the next MTO deal) either in leather or even Cordovan. However I'm not too sure about the Oscar last, if it's too round and bulbous. So I'm thinking about the Robert last...
Does anyone here have a par in Oscar and Robert to compare? What do you guys think about these lasts for the Jumper boot?

No experience with Robert but it's used more often on the balmoral boots. The Oscar last is great for the standard jumper boots. I don't find it to be too round or bulbous. Scan a few posts up for a gorgeous example of a pair of bourbon shell jumpers that are on oscar.

IMHO, the Carmina Jumper boot is one of their best models. Here is a derby boot on Robert(not their jumper style). I will say I found the instep to be a little lower compared to my other Carmina's but was fine on a derby boot
