    Remember that the colors change from batch to batch. This color is close enough to burgundy, it may even be hard to tell the difference on a new batch. I am getting some burgundy shoes this month from an MTO and would love to take a picture side-by-side for you. But again, YMMV.

    I'm currently drooling over the same shoe, but in brown on the Inca last. It's model no. 80168. I want. [​IMG]

    All right so some of you have already heard that Carmina decided to stop making non-laced shell boots (such as Jodhpur in navy shell) due to shells 'breaking' while processing.
    So I have some new MTO ideas for Navy Shell Boots.

    Below Model in Navy Shell Cordovan (possibly with speed hooks on top?)
    Brown Dainite Sole
    (possbily Red leather lining inside)

    I would be down with this boot with speed hooks on top.

    Red or green lining?

    Maybe something less formal than a punch cap like this regular cap or wingtip?

    Speedhooks shouldnt be a problem. However, Green lining is still not an option with Carmina at this point. (I think the Red lining should work)

    Since it has open lacing I think it'll look clean with a simple cap-toe [​IMG]

    Thinking something more like this:

    Navy Shell Cordovan
    Rain Last
    Brown Dainite Sole
    Red Lining
    Speed hooks
    Punch cap toe?

    Yep! Exactly! I used my burgundy boots picture since it displayed the shape of the Rain last better.
    (But I definitely understand about the cleaner cap-toe and speed hooks)

    What do you mean by punched cap toe? you mean medallion on the toe box? I think Rain will work best without it to better display its chiseled toe, but it's up to you guys :D
