    haha my brother actually mentioned that when I was looking at a few Carminas, he said they looked like heels

    Tried this one from skoab. Found out I need to size up for the robert last and had to return it. I was really impressed by the york sole though and wanted to share some pics. I was somehow under the impression that it would be sewn on top of a normal leather sole, but it's actually really well integrated. I would definitely buy another shoe with it.

    If you don't have money as a student then buy cheaper shoes, quite an easy concept but seems like so few students can grasp it

    Nah, will rather buy one pair of quality shoes than 2/3 pairs of cheap ones which aren't to my liking esthetically.

    Then buy the calf versions? Or wait on the MTM? Does a student really need a MTM suit?

    I haven't asked for your opinion, so stop bothering me.

    I am really thinking about these: http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/news/carmina-80188-oscar-marron

    What you think? As these practicly would be my first "real" shoes (besides my RM williams). As a student, i would like to buy a pair which works with almost anything, and these seems to take those criterias.

    Btw, i'm definitly coming to Skoaktiebolaget in near future.

    Personally am not a fan of six lace styles as well as heel "caps", but a dark brown plain stitch captoe is definitely a very versatile shoe and this pair of Carminas a great looking so.
    Great thing you have the chance to visit skoaktiebolaget in person.
    Let us know how the different lasts fit you :)

    So you prefer, a more plain heel? Can you link a shoe that you do like in the style i linked.

    I live in Stockholm, so no problem getting there ;)

    York is actually a full rubber sole where they added a piece of leather "on top" of the waist
