    Just ordered this for mine. Last time the fit was too tight with a 5.5 jumper boots so fingers crossed this time with size 6.

    There is a joint on the other shoe it justs joins better. Maybe I’m just accustomed to welt joints not being perfect every time. Just snapped a couple of pics of a few I have and they are certainly not cheap shoes.

    Agreed, on my shoes joint is cream and shoes dark blue, so I saw it a lot. Anyway I will leave it as I do not think Carmina will have the possibility to redo it as this is an mto.
    Thanks again

    The blue shell GMTO's just showed up.

    Shoe trees were included as well as the wallet and a nice mini bag for the wallet too.

    Fantastic all around.

    Awesome, I got the same without any shoe tree. Did you order the shoe tree in addition?

    Oh you decided to order them too I thought you had decided to pass on them, well then some pics from you and congrats.

    As for the shoe trees, I did not order them but somehow they showed up to my suprise. I did email Carmina before I placed the order asking if the shoe trees were included like most of the GMTO. I was wondering since it included the wallet was that in place of shoe trees or they just did not list that they were included. I got a reply that the shoe trees were not included unless it was specifically stated in the title. So since it was not in the title the wallet was I assumed I was not getting them. But when I opened the box there they were and I was pleasantly surprised. I guess since we now know that some got them and others did not I got them by mistake. Perhaps since most all the GMTO's do included them some were included because the person packing is just use to including them anyway.

    This is my first Oscar last and the fit seems ok at least for my initial try on. I will get these out for a spin in the next few days that will be the true test. But the right big toe had the needed clearance so I think we are good. I know as soon as I put on an Inca last I know the fit is not going to work out so at this point it is the only last I cannot wear.

    I haven’t received mine yet, but I purchased the shoe trees a week after I placed my original order. I think it was around 70€

    Yes they are pricey for non lasted shoe trees. Maybe I got your shoe trees :).

    Seems like I got them by mistake I guess some mix up in the ordering or packing.

    Loving the color of the blue, in low light can pass for black, but in the sun the blue comes out very nicely.

    Unlined Snuff suede string loafers which I purchased over at the Paris boutique while I was on vacation. These are really comfortable as compared to the normal “lined” versions! I don’t see them on the online web store though.

    Has anybody who ordered a 45-day-wait backordered pair of shoes during the summer sale in late May received their order yet? Just wondering when to expect mine.
