Does anyone know what's up with Carmina shoe trees these days?

I ordered a pair of shoes with trees for the waived MTO but the shoes arrived without them. Looking at the website it seems they are sold out of the normal model and they only have those fancy beechwood trees for sale.

I emailed [email protected] about the issue, but I have not received a reply in a week.

Is there a leather gallery of swatches or finished shoes to get a better picture of all the leather options Carmina has for custom orders?

If you can visit the store they have books with the leather, if not what I usually do is google the name of the leather+ carmina. E.g: brown lama Carmina

Gentlemen,

More advice needed... Trying to open my mind to other possibilities for my pending #4 order. Which of these is less formal? Both could theoretically be done with medallions as well. The cap toe could also be without the perforations.

#2 is much less formal. I have a pair of the top model in museum calf and sadly don't get to wear them much anymore because I rarely have call to wear balmorals these days.

Cross posting for best results:

Can anyone provide a comparison between the Alden 379X last and the Carmina Llubi last?

Thanks

New to Carminas. I have been searching the web and this thread and can’t find the answers to these questions:
Is the waiver MTO still open?
If so, there info somewhere on how to about submitting an order?

The last MTO weekend was available from the 10th to 13th October so I don't think they're gonna do it again anytime soon.
If you go to the website and click customize, you can choose the last/designs/materials you want from Carmina and MTO fee would be waived at checkout.

Not open any more, but keep an eye on this thread. Carmina offers MTO fee waiver on their website 2 or 3 times a year. This year they've also run SF focused MTO promotional events 5 or 6 times. Sara @Carmina communicates these events on this thread.

I'd keep an eye on them for Black Friday. They usually run some sort of special, but not necessarily an MTO waiver (I think they did once a few years back, though?).

I suggest you DM Sara, she’s very responsive to resolving issues.
