    Is there a consensus yet on the split toe boot?

    I think these would be better in light cognac shell. I think navy is better suited to a captoe boot. I just saw an austerity wingtip boot in navy and that wasnt bad either.

    Last is soller as its the only one that does a split toe boot. We are thinking 7-8 eyelets with potential speedhooks. I think dainite would be sweet but I am open to suggestions

    If it is going to be 7-8 eyelets then I would prefer speedhooks as a matter of functionality. Agree on the Dainite or perhaps a York sole. If jubei is kind enough to do a mockup in navy could we also see the light cognac version. I believe the current mockup is Saddle. There is a nice example of light cognac on the carmina website.

    I know that the Carmina factory is on vacation but we should probably come to a consensus soon for the split toe boot if we are shooting for a winter delivery.

    Will they give you credit toward 6 if it is 3 & 3 where only the color is different?
