    You should reconsider even considering purchasing Carminas if a speeding ticket makes you unable to purchase shoes... :facepalm:

    This is very off topic, but I just found out that 30% of people making >100k USD annually are living paycheck to paycheck.

    haha, but honestly that's very true. Speeding ticket 10 over would be what? $300-500ish?

    Thinking of getting this boot. Anyone own this and can provide feedback?
    -Does the Alcudia fit similiar to C&J's 341 (Alcudia has been described to have an almond shaped toe which I associate with the 341)?
    -How is the vegano leather quality, similar to C&J benchgrade I assume?
    -Confirming that people keep the same size between Carmina and C&J (e.g., Carmina 6E = C&J 6E)

    Is that a joke about the price of shoes or are speeding tickets in some places really that high? [​IMG]

    In some European countries, traffic fines are based on your yearly income. Good news if you're a blue collar worker, bad news if your a top CEO, I've heard of people being hit by fines € 100 000 and more.

    Thanks for letting me know Justinkapur. I'll scratch you off the list. Maybe next round!

    Red light is like $325ish I think not sure what speeding tickets are but they could be that high? Figured your deposit is around that range

    my ticket was $425 plus another $30 for traffic school. I hate cops that just watch you speed. Ive seen so many people needing help from the police and they stuck catching people speeding. Those assholes cost me my boots. Hopefully ill get on the next one!

    Just found another pic of the boot I'm craving. I've come to accept that our MTO won't make it in time for christmas, but I think this will make a fine substitute present (from me, to myself ).
