How does the Soller compare to the Rain,Robert, and Forest for a boot?
this is the only boot i have ... in rain last i have a dubmonk, and in forest last i had a penny loafer but i didn't like the shape of the toe. however nothing strange in the photos, but the shoe I had looked like a clown shoe ...
i took soller one size smaller than forest, and a half of rain. I find the width similar to rain with a rounder toe and a little wider than forest.

Hi all,

I'm considering a couple of purchases and wouldn't mind a little sizing help.

I've currently got 2 pairs of Carmina, both loafers, and I was sized for them at the Barcelona shop (on holiday, not an option in general)

I have the Uetam last in (UK) size 8 and the Forest last in size 7.5. The 7.5 are snug, which is fine in a loafer, but I wouldn't mind a touch more room widthways, especially as I'm considering a boot, but I think 8 in Forest would be too big (it was in loafers), and Rain looks like a good option.

Can I ask for other's experience in this? For a bit more context I'm size 8-8.5 in Edward Green, 7.5 in Trickers Bourton and a consistent 8 in Cheaney, Church's and C&J.

Thanks!

Hey guys. I saw this discontinued style on eBay. 80438. What do you think? I’m a fan of two tone brogues and adore my EG Malvern. Is this worth asking @Carmina for a style resurrection for customization? Perhaps a tan vegano and green repello?

Definitely unique, you do not see many boots like that. Carmina should be able to make it, just give them the model number. It's 80438

I asked them If they could make that model for me, and they said sure. That was a few months ago.
