that's precisely the shade i was hoping for.
I think this is one of the best cognac shell boots i´ve seen. Now i don´t mind waiting the extra weeks, my boot was delayed.
Hope the rest of the group like it as much as we do.
They are even better in person! A very nicely balanced boot! The Oscar last is quickly becoming my favourite with Carmina.
If I am not mistaken that is my pair in the pictures from SkoAB. I'd say the colour is quite true to the real deal.
the Mac method on those is going to = pretty awesome
Farfetch has some staple suede Carmina loafers on sale in small sizes, and the above, which are most decidedly non-staple
thanks - that's a decent price to rock with jeans
Hats off to Frank, it does look very, very nice and the picture does not do it justice.
Wow, that was a quick job by Carmina
^ Those para boots are definitely lighter than I had expected/hoped, but I'll withhold actual judgment until I put them on my feet.
And nothing that some wax can't fix, eh?
^ Pics look like saddle shell.
Edit: regardless, they are superb.
They look closer to saddle shell than to cognac and a lot lighter than I expected but I will reserve judgement until I receive them. Judging by the other posts, others had the same expectation.
For comparison, this is a saddle shell Sinclair boot by Carmina that is offered by Epaulet:
This is a cognac shell boot by Carmina that is, again, offered by Epaulet:
They do look like Saddle, which will be really really disappointing to me as I had expected the cognac as I already have the almost same boot from Carmina in Saddle Shell... but as said above I will reserve judgment until i see them since I also am waiting the additional 3 weeks....
You're right. They are way to light to be the same as the pic we had as reference. I will send Leaves a pm and ask them to double check this. I think they look better but right should be right.
Thanks, I'm in the prefer darker shell boat as well though I'm also in the next shipment so maybe shell will be different
