    Nice boot, but not a good idea.

    Epaulet seems to be getting stuff in under 2 months? They have so many mtos going but it's quick, 5 months would be on the longer side I think

    Oscar is a little wide, as many Carmina lasts are. Certainly wider than the incredibly sleek last looks. Slightly higher instep than Inca, I think (though I'm comparing very different makeups). Fortunately, open laced boots are the easiest thing to fit. Probably ordering your Inca/Forest/Robert size in Oscar would be the way to go.

    Great to hear, need that wider fit and higher instep. Would I take barrie size? So 10.5D in barrie, 9.5 UK?

    i just dont understand why do that to a pair of carmina boots trickers makes clunky stuff like that, that contrast sole will work with a "country" look but not a day to day city look, i almost thing the boots are sw&d now and should be worn w/jeans
