    Carmina dominates AE and C&J as far as price/quality ratio goes IMO. PM steve for the MTO pricing, I think you'll be pleased.

    IF I can figure out my Rain size soon AND the sole remains Danite -- I'm in for the shoe.

    Sorry -- I know that is a lot of variables.

    I know you have a few carminas :). Can you do us a solid and measure the outsole of an oscar lasted shoe and a rain lasted shoe in the same size? I heard the oscar last was a little shorter than the rain last but wanted real life data. Trying to nail down my oscar size before this cxl boot closes

    We have a handful of people interested (me, justinkapur, Burton, Todd V, you?), but no firm commits yet. Still trying to figure out the sole -- some people want leather, some people want Dainite. I'm personally ok with either.

    yes, at MSRP I agree. But the AE GMTO is priced at $295 and IMHO if the Carmina jumper is at $500+, I wouldn't dare say AE is 40% less in quality than Carmina.

    Full disclosure: I'm in on the AE GMTO, and mainly the one who started it :)

    Dainite is my preference but if for some reason its going to break up this MTO i will go with the majority of the group and have the soles topied

    Picked these up from Steve a bit ago (not the best pic). Love the shoes and Steve's customer service (as always) was fantastic.

    Would you mind grabbing another pic outdoors when wearing them? I'm very tempted by the split-toe but slightly hesitant about the color...
