    This. They are described by retailers and Carmina themselves as a narrow last. Sure, there is a lot more to it, but big picture...they are narrow.

    The Carmina sale will be at 1am for me, but that's OK- I'm up that night for the FA Cup Final anyway. A new pair of shoes and a trophy for the Gunners would be a good couple of hours!

    That's a nice fantasy. Those goons will crumble like they have every year for the last 9 years!

    I should have expected that the good people of this thread would be classy in other areas than the sartorial. COYG!
    OK, SOME of the good people of this thread. I don't know how a Spurs fan got in here. Wasting $100 million on overpriced third-class stuff is not the Luxeswap way.

    That's about right. Unless you have a high instep and are buying a Simpson-lasted shoe, in which case, go 9.5.

    I'm a 9.5 in Carmina Rain and Carmina Simpson. Why? Because I have flat feet. Virtually no arch.

    Yes, it's a narrow last. Narrow in the vertical axis.

    Stitchy, you have gignormously long feet, right?

    I would pay very, very close attention to the auctions that go live in about 12 hours, if I were you. ;)

    Ha, fixed, thank you!



    You are not alone. But I felt it was getting a bit convoluted, posting absolutely everything in the previews, when probably 80-90% of it you guys weren't jumping up and down for… was also a lot of time to upload them, when I could have been getting more auctions out :slayer:. Im thinking of a way to reintroduce them, perhaps on a more selective level.
