    Looks like the show was great! How many "Grail Shoes/Boots" did you come away with?

    Kewl. It's gotta be great to be able to try them on.

    I take it you found a way to ditch the 'needy' girl?

    Nope - don't worry you'll get a PM. Lousy light today - hoping for better tomorrow.

    They've mentioned that they like to fingered under on the tongue, btw.

    Great shoes - I got the double monk on the Inca from the Armoury. I love the purple lining as well.

    How does the shortwing boot compare to your Lindrick?

    Has anyone gotten Carmina's lasted shoe trees? Is it the same as this? If not, could you post a pic and let us know how much it costs? Thanks.

    I am looking into getting a pair of Carmina's, seeing there is a boutique that carries them now. They are supposedly the only place in Canada that you can get them. Not sure if that is true or not, but it is one hell of a selling point.

    Gdot, they are beautiful. I thought they were on the Rain last though.

    This is one of the pairs of shoes I'd buy knowing full well I would have no occasion to wear them. They'd be on permanent display in a well lit cabinet.

    You are right about the last, my bad - just edited the poast! :embar:

    I'm thinking I'll wear them a lot - as my work environment is pretty flexible as long as clients aren't present. I'm very anxious to see how they shade with some wearing.

    Which store is this? It'd be great to be able to try on a pair to determine size/fit. And what are the prices like?
