    Yep, just finished polishing them and was really pleased with the way they turned out. Taking photos with even a 10 year old digital camera still wipes the floor with the camera in my Blackberry!

    The Inca last is really comfortable!

    It's wide in just the right spot to give my little toe some extra comfort. The arch is just right as well.

    Does anyone know what "half rubber sole" means in the description of this pair of shoes on the e-store?

    Heel and forefoot is rubber while the waist is leather. Think partial dainite sole with a leather waist. Epaulet had a couple pairs of Carmina with this sole at the SF10 event

    Mhmm. Still looks relatively narrow, thanks to the chiseled toe

    Interesting. Do you think that kind of sole would be suitable for a pair of jodphur boots?

    I think it would be ideal for a jodhpur boot or any boot in general. The sole looked sleek and the build quality, impressive. Initially when I first heard of it and saw pictures, I was a bit skeptical but after handling it in person, I decided to have my bal boot made with the combo leather instead of double leather sole
