You just need to fly into NYC for the event!:p
@zag73

Travelling to NY would be slightly inconvenient....

We will be announcing a special offer exclusively for style forum members.

Check the thread the 15th August for more details.

How exciting!!

Does anyone here have Carmina shoes or boots in Saddle Cordovan? How does it look? Does it look like Whiskey?

I'm considering doing a NST makeup at some point. How does the 80414 differ from the 80189?

Which last would be friendlier for a high instep? Rain EEE or Forest EEE? I've only tried Forest EE and it was too tight in the instep

If you're looking at EEE the 80189 won't work without a last change since it's on Simpson.

Thanks Madhat. For the MTO version of the 80189, Rain EEE is an option as well. For 80414, both Rain EEE and Forest EEE seem to be available.

These are the comparisons for Simpson, Rain and Forest.

Oscar and Rain, as always remember they are based on size 7.5uk which is our size for samples here in the factory.

I've only tried forest and Detroit, as rain trades pinkie toe clearance for big toe as seen in quoted above. Doesnt seem to be a huge difference in volume. I know @jet-stream compared these at one point as well.
Obviously I went forest EEE for my first pair!

You know, you’d have a lot less samples left if you went to UK8.5 as your sample size....just saying 😜

Any chance that there will be more specific detail prior to the in store event? I'm within a reasonable distance of NY.

The event will be taking place in-store the 15th August from 16:30 until 19:00.

Initially, we will be having a meet and greet with a special guest as well as some very interesting offers for everyone that pops in.

I only have experience with normal widths, not EEE. In stock widths, rain has substantially more instep room IMO. I agree with madhat’s note about toe trade offs in rain.
