    I've heard that Carminas are lighter in weight than other high-end shoes, e.g., Aldens.

    Is this true? If so, is it due to the absence of a steel shank? I note that Carmina's detailed description of their manufacturing process on the website makes no mention of a steel shank.

    Does anyone know for sure?

    I may be in if you guys decide on black calf in the rain last. I think this shoe would look great in tan or cognac too.

    Would be nice to do a MTO for spring or summer shoe since delivery is 3-6 months.

    I couldn't agree more. I'd like to see a loafer or a spectator to be honest.

    Man, you guys sure do love your boots lol.

    I'm not in the market for a spectator right now but here's an idea.

    I wanted to do a split toe venetian loafer in tan scotch grain or shrunken leather. No bites!

    Yeah...no more boots for me.

    cough Brown/white monk! I swear to you that I'll keep bringing this idea back until it catches hold.

    Quote:Is that Simpson last? I could do that in the horween Russian calf, if available. I'd still do the green burnished loafer that was kicked around months ago, if we can do it on Simpson

    Haha. I actually feel you on this one. That pic you posted a while back actually is what had me thinking about it actually.
    Did we ever find out if that Russian hatch grain was available? I would definitely be down to do a makeup with that.

    It's not a Carmina shoe, I believe an EG or GG MTO from Leffot.

    I also like this shoe in tan for spring/summer and depending on the wax or polish you use, could be darkened and burnished for fall/winter similar to the EG MTO from Leffot below.

    I think combining that with the earlier 5-eye chukka idea would be cool. A leather like the one below on Rain or Simpson (if possible).
