    Mine just arrived, and holy shit, they are insane! I've only had a chance to try it on briefly, but the fit seems to be perfect, and the workmanship is as good as advertised. I'm going to have a hard time trying to keep myself from buying more Carminas...(well, I've already bought another pair of Carminas, but they're heels for my wife.) I'm extremely happy with them.:D

    They are great, had mine since Michael received them (lucky NYer). They are wonderful shoes.

    Are you talking about exact replacement laces? Mine came with an extra set of laces so I assume they come with every pair.

    I asked before opening the box...mine came with an extra pair also but I'm still curious because I like the flat laces.

    These are beautiful shoes...does anyone know how many were ordered?

    Got mine today. They are beautiful!!!! I will take them out tomorrow. One question though, my pair only came with one shoe bag. Is that normal?

    I believe we ordered around 24 units. And I'm not sure if Carmina sells replacement laces or not. I'll agree that they are pretty awesome.

    Glad you dig them! It's something strange that I've figured out with Carmina, it seems that sizes under UK10 only come with one shoe bag. That sounds crazy, but I've gone through pretty much every delivery and it seems to be the case. Both pairs of shoes I personally own were the same way.

    Here are my first pics. The first is under artificial light and the otters are in natural sunlight. These shoes really are awesome.

    Cross post from Epaulet thread...

    Rocking Carmina navy suede plain toes for the first time today with my Cramerton's. Obviously this combo is an easy match. These Carmina's are ridiculously nice -- don't sleep on them. Everyone should have navy suede in their arsenal. Well played, Mike.

    Absolutely gorgeous!

    it's such a pity I missed this special order...
