1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Yeah! :slayer:

    (Fixed the list for you, we are six)

    We still need Steve's input on the medium brown sole edge though.

    Carmina definitely does it, and does it VERY well. Below is exactly how what we're proposing will look

    ^ Yes! re the sole edge.

    But: minus the sole middle part, I'd prefer a Commando in one rubber piece (i.e. Without the leather piece in the middle, for durability)

    Re the sole edge, I'm hoping for a little lighter than the above. I've been doing a ton of research re carmina sole edge and while doing so, I read somewhere that skoaties pictures appear lighter than they truly are. If that's then case then maybe the natural sole edge is the route to go bc. It would be darker in person.

    All that said, I know we all love shoes, Steve and this mto but it's Labor Day weekend! Let's give Steve some time to respond about the sole edge. I think we have all the logistics ironed out except for thiis last detail. I'm confident he will get back with us as soon as he can. Hope everyone has a great weekend! Im really looking forward to this boot! I'm a Baylor alum so I'll end this with a Sic Em Bears!

    As far as I know, Carmina only offers a hybrid (leather/rubber) commando sole.

    Just one interest at this point :(

    I think both are the same actually. First picture was a studio shot and made the antique brass came out much brighter
    They do not have bright brass, antique brass option but just one brass option :)

    We are still waiting for one member to give me a final confirm. Let me reach out to you guys separately in a PM!
    Cheers!

    I do, but like I said before, I need to make sure I have my sizing down first. Steve, what's the ETA on the burgundy U-cap GMTO?

    Are you OK with quarter or semi brogue?

    Probably quarter but neither is a deal breaker for me.

    I would be in as well, but it would have to be Rain last for me. My preference would be semibrogue.

    Have you worn other Carmina lasted shoes before? To me the Rain last is the most forgiving



    So we would have 4 potential but semi brogue would have preference. Dainite is still ok for everyone?
