    Haha. So that is two! Mostly every other brand has an "appreciation" thread.

    Lol, I was browsing this page from laptop the other day. My girlfriend walked over and asked me what kind of porn I was into, at which point I had to open the tab and explain to her I was looking at shoes. She looked surprised and then clarified her question: no, what kind of porn do you watch?

    It's just a sticky mess now

    When I created the shell cordovan thread I called it Pr0n and it's amazing how much arrangement of two letters matter

    Never said I support a name change? Rather showing my appreciation. This was my ticket to freedom...



    Lol, j/k :D name change would be nice.

    You have my support on the name change. I've had to do some explaining to my wife when she saw the thread title on on my phone and laptop. Also worried that people at work will get the wrong idea...not that staring at shoe pics doesn't already garner some questions...

    Not sure if anyone has mentioned it yet but there's a sale on the Carmina website, quite an extensive range of shoes

    Anyone have advice on how the Queens last fits compared to the Rain?

    Rain seems a bit longer because it's narrower and more chiseled toward the front. Similar raised toeboxes. Rain also seems to be a bit wider around the ball of the foot, but that may be because my Queens pair is shell and my Rain pairs are calf and suede. I take the same size in both.

    I did my best to line them up at the back. Both 9UK.

    Shell pair - Queens
    Suede pair - Rain

    Toeboxes:

    And a shot from above.

    Thank you very much for the response. Very helpful. I should take the same size in both lasts, then.
