Where to buy???
I was wondering if I could get some advice. Being inspired by these (http://imgur.com/a/rO3Wp) shoes to try and get a somewhat similar pair. I came up with this (http://imgur.com/a/wjzoR). I had asked Skoaktiebolaget and was told that the shoe is the model called 748 on the Forest last in Vegano Cuero (Tanned calf). I know there is a Tanned Vegano in Box Calf but I believe those are different. Or am I wrong?
Now the question I had is in regard to sizing. I currently wear a 10.5 EEE in the Allen Edmonds 511 last. I should mention my heel slips a bit with that shoe though. I wasn't sure exactly what would be the best last for me from Carmina, perhaps a Rain? I was thinking of sizing down to a 9.5 UK with a EEE Carmina width which I believe is a E for Brannock device. I went to an Allen Edmonds store and was sized once more and was told that I was about a 10 to 10.5 on both left and right foot with an EE on left and EEE on my right foot. I went to a local Macys and decided to use a Brannock device myself and got the following (http://imgur.com/a/ngmWv) results.
Any advice is really appreciated. Thank you.
I bought them at a store here in Mexico, it's called Palacio de Hierro but they don't ship internationally.
