Super cool!As everyone decides what to MTO, just wanted to highlight that Carmina has a new Balmoral offering to consider.
Around the time that @George Red formally introduced the Calway derby boot, I was in conversation with my long time Carmina contact about introducing a shorter length (of shaft) balmoral boot similar to the C&J Charlton below (which I own). I think the C&J looks great dressed up or with jeans:

So when the Calway made its debut it made sense to me to follow the design aesthetics put down by that sister boot (off center inverted "v" ). Thus we moved forward with the following design and model number 80841:

The height of the pandemic slowed things down and I sort of put the project on the back burner. To be honest, I almost forgot about it. Well, to my surprise, as I perused the the Carmina site on Monday I see the following:

I called my contact to thank him, but he was just as surprised as I was that the boot was already in production. Whoever pushed it through has my gratitude. My MTO is going to be a simple all black Vegano make-up.
Just wanted to give everyone a heads up in case they were in the market for a shorter height balmoral boot.
Have a look at Horween’s U.K. stockist. The colour reproduction is quite faithful:Hey there, can i please see pictures of marbled shell? It doesn't matter the last or style.
They only offer 2 marbled options this time around, I'm deciding if i want to wait till they offer more options
Yeah it’s a great point, I think an option like when it says “apply all” would be great if it popped up and said “choose default color palette or use best color compliment”. This way you could either use that option or you could at least visualize what carmina views as the typical pairing, and then iterate from that.Where's the "special requests" text box in the MTO tool UI? I can't find a place to say "ignore my stitch color choice and choose whatever blends best".

Nice choice of leather! Which one is it?After spending an ungodly amount of hours playing with the new 3D customisation tool I gotta say it's really well done (and terribly dangerous)! The only pain is that the last of the model doesn't change, which makes it hard to visualise the end result sometimes. But I guess that must not be easy to achieve from a software perspective.
It was pretty hard to get just one pair. This Chelsea 80216 in Forest EEE eventually won, hopefully the double sole + dainite won't be too thick.
