    Don't get it on the shoes guys (although cordovan does wipe off easily).

    I guess I was not clear enough. I was asking if the boots were cheaper if purchased directly from Carmina. I went to their site but could not find them.

    Sadly there's some sanded off lining on the toecap, so these'll go back to Carmina.

    Thanks for the comments. I really do love the shoe. Seeing NAMOR's blue shell boots talked me into the color and when I saw the shoe design on the Carmina website I contacted Betty about a MTO. It was really simple to get it completed and after a few emails we had all the details worked out. The Euro to Dollar rate was pretty good when I paid and these cost surprisingly less that what you may think expect for a one off MTO shell shoe. Anyone interested in a MTO should contact Betty at Carmina.

    Do you have Betty's phone number or email?

    Has anyone thought about a cordovan navy wingtip boot?

    Holy shit! The inside w/ flash pictures look amazing. I think shell is a great choice for a single monk, and the color and finish looks superb.

    Carmina don't have wingtip boots on their site. They're a special make up for Epaulet.

    The only wingtip boot I see on the Carmina site is a wingtip chelsea boot:

    I know you're just pointing it out, but this looks pretty bad in my opinion.

    I agree - not something I would ever buy. This lovechild should not have been born.
