    Will PM about a special order, but I'll also take this opportunity to ask about a special makeup of the Alt Wien (...pebble grain/burgundy shell...:) not quite sure in what ratios). I imagine this isn't at the top of your to-do list right now, and I suppose I've ended up the same shoe in different colors before... Just thought I'd throw this out there again.

    Yeah - now imagine surfing this forum - seeing hundreds of shoes you love, and then realizing there is about a .003% chance they are even made in your size. It sucks.

    I'm 6'8", so I accept that most of the fashion on this site (and everywhere) isn't designed for me, but it really pisses me off that I have such a crap selection of shoes to choose from. I can always lose weight to fit into a smaller size shirt/jacket/pant, but my damn feet won't shrink.

    I am thankful that because of this site I am aware of companies like Whites, Viberg, and Russel Moccasin who will make shoes up to my size.

    Hey Mike,
    I got my calf/suede bal boots and they are awesome. I have them on presently and love them. Since I know that the Robert last fits so well I will be open to ordering more boots. I'll be in on the Black Scotch Grain for sure!

    I believe all the bal boot MTOs are on the Forest last.

    ^Agree. Cognac seems to be closer to Ravello than to Cigar. Take note all those looking for Alden Ravello makeups...

    Also, post some photos when you get a chance. Hoping Mike reorders these so I can get in with a wide.

    First post!!
    I love Salinger Double Monk Burgundy Shell Cordovan, but it run out of my size UK 7.5. Will you bring in anymore of that shoe or something similar? :slayer:

    Hey guys!

    Just checking in with everything. We successfully reopened the Manhattan store this past weekend and we've been able to (mostly) catch up on orders. We shipped out quite a few remaining bal boots and a bunch of other Carminas. Thanks to everyone who ordered! We'll reopen on Tuesday with both stores and full staff back in action, and thanks for bearing with us over the past week.


    Haha, you and me both! I've been wearing my pair like crazy. I have a reorder in on that style already - we should get a restock before the year is out.


    Excellent, I'm thrilled to hear that you're pleased with them. Thanks again!


    Ah, unfortunately Carmina doesn't go up that high. But do you live around the NYC area? If so, I can recommend two custom MTM cobblers that you might want to check out.

    I have customers come through with your large sizes, very small sizes, very wide fittings, etc. all of the time. It's more common than you think. But having a custom pair made is always an option. It's certainly expensive, but if you own 2-3 pairs of solidly crafted, goodyear-welted shoes, and you take care of them, that original investment will really pay off. It's something that you may want to look into some day.
