    I have like one or two. Let me edit one of those. I was running late for the wedding and when the music started I couldn't stop dancing. Fonrtunately the Goodyear welt holds great for dancing, shoes doesn't even look like if they were used hard on the dance floor. [​IMG]

    Thanks Cleav and Jazz!

    Would've never thought you could dance in loafers. I'm really diggin the light brown. :slayer: The navy ones I got seem to be very dark... I was hoping lighter but oh well.

    I can't say 'no' when dem ladies want to shake it. As Peaches and Herb used to say: "Shake your groove thing, shake your groove thing, yeah! Yeah!" :lol:


    Woohoo! Thanks! Will wait for it.

    I work this exact same combo to my cousins wedding. It was hot as hell. 39 degree Celius at 10:00 PM.

    My four month old Carmina snuff string loafers have survived hours of dancing/being stepped on/spilled on at the grimiest, dirtiest bar in DC I've ever seen, a 7 hour hike around Manhattan followed by more bars and dancing, multiple sprints through sudden thunderstorms, and a fairly wet boat ride around Martha's Vineyard — all within the past few weeks. They wear hard and hold up very admirably.

    I wear them on average 2-3x a week and I've just exposed the sole stitching.

    ^^^^ Very nice. Chromexcel rocks for boots that you want to be able to wear whatever the weather.

    Great boots half!

    Here's a pic of the Carmina in the wild... or a bit of them with my cousin (the groom) wearing a tux (he's crazy, I don't know how he tolerated it with that weather). I'm the one with the black circle over my face.

    One of my other cousins basically copied my outfit [​IMG] he asked me for advice. I ditched the tie and the jacket cause it was very very very hot and I'm used to very cool weathers. All of them are my cousins except the one in the far left (as viewer of the pic) with the black dress, the one in the pink dress and the one in the solid red dress.
