My favorite Carmina bad weather boot. Can take a beating and still clean up nice. Oscar last.
Thank you for suggesting, I visited Gentlemensfootwear. The shoe collection is amazing.
Loden suede Chukkas w/ crepe soles on Rain today
^^ Very nice, Ryden. I definitely dig those!
Seconded. The laces are a nice touch.
What color are those laces, Ryden?
these pics are pretty accurate. They are a light colored leather lace. They are the perfect choice I think to juxtapose the darker edge trim with the light crepe sole.
if you are still thinking about a monk this thing is straight bad to the bone
That thing is bad ass isn't it? I tried on a Carmina double monk on Rain in Philly, but I didn't feel like it worked for me. Maybe because I was dressed casually? I feel like I'd have to go back there a bit more dressed and try them on again.
I much prefer a single monk to double personally. I just feel like there is less hardware and the angle of the strap works better for me. Plus it is a longer piece of uninterrupted shell
I can see that. It works out for me as it is one less shoe type I am interested in.
Broguing is not my thing, but I'm trying to pitch them to my brother-in-law who has a penchant for wingtips. However, he isn't as shoe crazy as I am and seem to be effectively exercising restraint. (Missing out on a good thing, if you ask me.)
These were made for Paul Stuart by Carmina. Any ideas what last this is? I only have experience with the forest and the simpson. I love the toe shape on these.
That doesn't look like any Carmina last I've seen. It might be a last that is only available on a mto
I think they are rain but EE.
