    I was part of the GMTO for the Dark Cognac Jumper Boots from Carmina, but due to certain circumstances I will not be able to wear these for quite a while, so I am hoping to sell them (in a sense). If anybody is interested, it would be as if you were purchasing from Skaok directly.

    Here are the details:
    Boot: Carmina Jumpers
    [​IMG]
    Color: Dark Cognac (Note: Should be similar to the above, but may not be exact)
    Last: Oscar Last (I believe this fits similarly to the Forest last)
    Price: Approx. $720 - excluding VAT (This could change, but I believe it is a fairly good deal relative to other Carmina retailers)
    Size: 9 UK / 10 US

    Please PM me for details and / or any questions.

    Thanks!

    Wow - those really rock. The shell jumpers are super nice, too.

    Those were my first pair of Carminas and still my favorite. The chocolate suede is perfect and goes well with almost everything. A great choice!

    Thank you! I didn't want to get a pair of patent leather shoes that I could only wear with a tux so I thought a well shined pair of plain toes balmorals would work equally well - both with a tux and elswwhere.

    I really like the fur lined Carmina boot, but the color came in a tad lighter and more orange than what I wanted. Not a major change, but dark brown Saphir to the rescue...

    I think there's a quute big difference and I like the end result more. Really nice work, it's not easy to get such a even polish on grain leather.

    Do you have to size up for fur lines shoes? Or are they made slightly larger in order to compensate for the space the fur takes up

    They compensate for it. I went with my usual Rain/Soller size.


    Thanks guys. I made sure to test and practice on the tongue first. It was a pretty quick on and off. A brush helped to get it in the grain evenly before the cream dried.
