    I've never actually managed to purchase anything from the online store. Something wrong with the website.

    The shoes in my avatar were bought via the website so it can be done. I notice that the shop site is down right now although the collections site seems to be fine.

    I genuinely did not know. How do you establish same unless using some line up crim style? I scored them cheap on eBay when Carmina was never even mentioned much around here apart from the cognoscenti.....:)

    Narrower than the Rain and Inca but wider than the Simpson. The length feels the same as the Rain and Inca. All in all they're comfortable but I'd really need to wear them for a day or so to give a proper comment. The saddle shell is something else in person!

    Interesting. Some of the Forest models are described as having an E fit, while others are described as having an EE fit.

    From the Carmina site:

    This one is E.

    This one is EEE.

    Everything else is EE.

    Go figure. Maybe it's the last in conjunction with the type of shoe that determines the width?
