    I love the all about them but the high shaft. I does look a lot like a ladies boot from the golden 20's

    Well, there are a few pairs of mid-length bal boots floating around.

    Ranger: Those look awesome!

    Machine welting (using the Goodyear welting machine) usually, possibly always, involves gemming.

    Great Link, thanks for sharing.

    Fantastic shoe, colour and last...I got me a pair from SKAB and have to say they the most comfortable pair of Carminas I possess.

    I wear 8.5E in C&J and took the same....fitting is great.

    C&J and Carmina are very similar in size.
    I was just with a friend at skoaktiebolaget who is a C&J size 7UK and he bought a Carmina size 7UK.
    Another friend is a size 10UK for C&J and also for Carmina.
    I am a size 6.5UK C&J for all lasts and 7E for EG 888 and sadly havent tried any Carmina yet, since skoaktiebolaget start most their Carmina shoes at 7,
    but I would feel pretty safe buying a size 6.5 Carmina.
    ...and they are beatiful shoes I agree :)

    Hope that helps

    Thanks for the advice, but apparently they're out size 11 [​IMG]

    I sent a mail to Carmina directly. Lets hope that works out...

    In your opinion how does the Carmina Cordovan Boots compare to those made by Alden and Crockett and Jones?
