I wonder what a Calway with Grizzly Grey on the vamp and Black Russian grain on top would look like... 🤔
Funny, we seem to have the same taste in boots (not sure if that's good or shitty taste, probably depends on who you ask). I was thinking the same thing this morning after doing the survey regarding those two leathers; been itching to do a black and grey for awhile now.

Would love to take those but How does the Simpson last fit relative to forest? I take a EEE in forest?

Yeap, probably someone who wears a EEE Forest would need like 1 full size up in Simpson. But, to be honest, it's a beautiful last. :satisfied:

Carmina Shoemaker Balmoral Oxford Simpson Last
Not sure I agree with you guys on the sizing here. I don't have a pair but I'd need Forest in EEE but Simpson works fine for me in a half size up from normal Carmina size (ie. typical simpson fit). I think this is one of those cases where if in doubt there's no substitute for being fitted.

I would add that for someone who wants the boots that are the subject of this discussion --- they are well priced for a new pair. If they were my size and I thought there was a good chance they would fit I'd probably take that gamble knowing that I might need to resell them for, at most, a nominal loss.
