You can request that... not the best pic but these are very light chestnut and not natural.

Those are gorgeous. I’ve been doing it all wrong this whole time!! 😂😂 thanks for the tip, though. Next time...

Thanks! definitely one of my favorite pairs. Carmina is pretty great to work with as far as customizations go.

Maybe next Christmas??? 🤔 😂 The shell on these is mighty thick too. Might take me some time to get broken in. I picked them up out of the box and was like “oh they put shoe trees in too...” Nope. Just that substantial.

I’m giving this troll a D- for effort. Really weak hating game. At least that Guccinski fella had a well-defined, disagreeable perspective. Let’s all ignore and move on sharing stuff about our Carmina shoes and boots....
then I have my Christmas 2021 all set then! 😜 I have some marbled AE boots and those are thick shell as well, impressive stuff.

the troll comment was unfortunate, but I’m just pissed that Stook said that there’s an asshole of the day award that I wasn’t aware of. I need to up my caustic vitriol game, and at least vie for that coveted award now-and-then. oh well, there’s always tomorrow I suppose....

Speaking of suede NST shoes from earlier, I have these beauties from Carmina, on Forest.

You'll never see another like these. While they look like suede, I convinced Carmina to make a "leather" out of ground tree bark, Koala fur, and fairy tears. I think the results speak for themselves. I think I have that right, but then again, I've had a glass of Pappy tonight, so I may be confused.

Just picked up forest polo nst, and totally love the makeup. My robert brown derbies have a partner now. Not sure if it's the design of the nst vs derby, but the forest instep feels lower? The forest lacing gap is bigger, and its definitely snugger even if it's a hair wider at the ball. I honestly can't tell if there's a heel difference.

What is the little "2" stamp next to the size designating? If these are seconds they're nearlybflawless if that's what the 2 means.

Nah they are 10. Its weird. Maybe a number is carved in at a vendors request? Both soles have it. Any search regarding "2 sole," "seconds," didn't yield anything in the first few pages.

And no one is going to tell you that those shoes are kind of ugly? They make you stand out but they are not that dapper, in my opinion. Looks like a haphazard attempt at a patina. It's your shoe and money though, so congrats on your creation.
Prick.

These look lovely! Is that just brown suede? It strikes me as quite light.

I just got a shipping notice from Carmina, but the only open order I have is from the Color 4 gmto. I wasn’t expecting that for months; did anyone else get a shipping email for a color 4/amaretto order?

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 lets ignore him so he can go back to his Pokémon arena, I mean Mom’s basement.
As I’ve said before, my friend. Let’s not wrestle with pigs. We all get dirty, but the pig likes it. And this is one unusually foul fucking piece of swine.
