    Are you supposed to have so much room between your ankles and the boots? I've never had boots before but now considering Carmina...

    His legs are leaning forward, which should account for a lot of that. Or maybe he's just scrawny [​IMG]

    Probably a mix of both. I've got high calfs and my ankle's only 9.5" inches around where the boot ends. Also, I'm not using the top speed hooks.

    yywwyy, I've had boots from Carmina with Rain last, the shaft fits extremely close. zielschuss hasn't tied his laces around the highest speed hooks, this is why the boots look so loose.

    Will the incoming restocks (especially the one I quoted) be identical to the versions on your website or have you made any modifications?

    Btw, are you expecting one big delivery in december and one in january or might they be split into several shipments? I was thinking of dropping by with a friend of mine when you have a lot of stock and infecting him with an expensive desire. [​IMG]

    So, rugged-looking leather, rugged sole, and...suede? Sounds silly.
