those look superb. Just knowing how tall from the ground to the top of the upper would be perfect
I think I asked Carmina about this at one point a long time ago and was told that the height varies depending upon the size. So what you really might want to know is the height relative to other models. I don't have a calway myself but I can tell you the classic high jumper is probably about 2 inches or so taller than most of my other boots.

ETA: Found what I was talking about... see below

Wow, okay, so they're like really bespoke even down to specific sizes. I presumed, among one style, they'd all be the same height. But yes, mainly relative height is of interest, specifically the 80791 vs Jumpers. This is a way more intensive process than I figured it would be
I wouldn't say they're bespoke; the pattern is just scaled between sizes. Consider what would happen if the size 5 have the same toecap as a size 12? the same eyehole spacing? the same height? the scale would be completely out of wack, and there would only be a range of shoes between let's say size 8-10 that look proportionally correct.

All manufacturers scale their patterns, so you'd just have to consider that a smaller shoe will have a lower shaft height than a larger shoe.
