    These have fast become my favourite pair.

    They're calf suede on the Rain last.

    Thank you.

    Nah, man. I was in Barcelona in September last year, so popped by their store and bought just the one pair. Thinking about a possible second pair from the Armoury. I'm hoping to be in HK in late March this year.

    Was in the Palma store today and picked up a pair of suede boots in Rain last. More pics in the suede shoe porn thread.

    Lovely boots Frank, well done, and thanks for posting shots from the store! Not a big fan of double monks but those look great. What is the leather?

    I love these shoes. I picked up the tan calf version on the rain last pic'd below the last time I was in spain. Wish I has seen these suede ones. Wow.

    Thanks. The monks is made of lizard.


    This is the same shoe that i posted, they are the nr 3 pic. I think my pic is much more true color than this one. Anyway, great looking shoe and this was what i had in mind when i got to the store but they didn´t have it smaller than size 8 or 8.5.

    I cant put into words how much I love the look of the Rain last! It has an awesome shape.

    Have you seen anything in the Alcudia last? It's somewhat elongated, like the Rain, but the toe is rounder and the toebox is a bit roomier. Really nice, it's a shame they don't offer many models in that last; at least they're not readily available.

    Is #3 a Rain last? The toe looks different. In any case, under daylight the pair I i have is very, very dark. Can't agree that yours is a more true colour. The pair in your picture could be a shade lighter than mine.

    Taken from my shockingly terrible Bold 9900 camera, this is how dark my pair suede Carminas are, in daylight: [​IMG]

    The Alcudia is my favorite looking and fitting last so far. The only reason I haven't bought more Carminas.
