    So my gf is currently in Barcelona and she dropped by the Carmina store, apperently the prices for most of the calf skin shoes were 350 euro, which seemed pretty high considering they go for less on their website.

    Anyhow, I need some help regarding their lasts. Im looking for a semi or full brouge, captoe oxford in mid brown color. Im torn between Inca, alcudia anf forest last, does anyone have a comparison picture of all their lasts?

    I want something that is sleek without being pointy or having anything close to a squared toe. A round sleek last, what do you guys suggest?

    see above dude, (it was on page 33 of this thread)... sadly no alcudia or inca although if you go back a page or two and see "bullswin" new shoes on alcudia last you can get a good idea, i hear robert is a good last too

    also the prices are cheaper for us in USA because VAT is taken off

    Thanks, Ive been going back in the thread and reading post for a while now and am on page 34. The soller and queens lasts looks awesome, forest is a bit to wide and "full" for my taste, too bad these lasts dont seem to be their most common ones.

    Hmm, is the second from the left cognac? It's the closest color to the one on their site.
