    These arrived from Skoaktiebolaget this morning: Cognac shell PTBs on the Detroit last. As my first pair of Carmina's, I have to say I'm thrilled so far with the quality of the shoe, as well as the service I received from Skoak. Can't wait to pick up more Carminas.

    Your picture didn't load properly, but it's a great makeup.

    Danite sole makes it a great alternative if the floors are a bit wet. How dark are the shoes?

    Are you talking about Steve's GMTO?

    I'm in it as well. I think that is "dark cognac", while ours is "cognac". In addition, the soles are different as well: double leather sole vs danite.

    Would have purchased this pair if I missed out on Steve's GMTO.

    No biggie, can always switch over to danite when the double leather sole wears thin.

    Also wanted to share this other pic from Carmina's Instagram, just because the cognac looks so good!
