    Which is the sleekest last from Carmina? How does it compare to C&J 348?

    I stopped by Skoaktiebolaget today and talked to Adam and tried Oscar last and some G&G, met Leaves too. Great store and excellent service but that was no surprise since i´ve got the same service with email with the MTO.

    Some sizing info.
    I have a boot in the RAIN last 7.5UK and decided to go with the same size in Oscar.
    BUT, Oscar fits more snugg and i think i could go with a 7UK in rain in the future since the RAIN boot is in suede and have streched a bit. Oscar is lower in the insteap but that should not be a problem for most since i have a very high insteap.

    How do you find the width of the Oscar compared to the Rain in the same size?

    Some had trouble viewing my pictures and requested that I repost. I am doing so as an attachment now. Hopefully this works.

    Beautiful boots, pats. I (along with a few others) am disappointed about missing out on the first stock of those, so you'd better enjoy the hell out of them.

    Um, so nothing like our boot then? [​IMG] Except they're both Carmina boots.

    Ah, that I can understand. I'll have my first Carmina boots coming in from Epaulet hopefully within a week, and god knows that the last three months of waiting have been hell.

    there ya go, that's what i meant.
    having the AS Moore in hard to locate chestnut in my size should be a couple o weeks away & may help a little.
    i really am stoked about the boot. i think we made an excellent choice. (insert mental justification here)
