    Love the pics...thank you very much!! My dilemma now is whether to fly to Europe Business Class or bite the bullet and fly coach and buy a few extra pairs of Carmina's.:blush:

    As somebody who's 5'6" and has never had problems with flying coach, that answer is pretty damn obvious to me.

    Even if coach is problematic for you, 12 hours total of mild discomfort versus several pairs of awesome shoes that will last you decades. Think about that, shouldn't take too long.

    I believe I purchased the shoes a 1/2 size too small. While they fit snugly in the store, my expectation was they would stretch in the width a bit after some wear. After having had the opportunity to walk around in them more when I got home, I realized the shoes are actually a bit too small in both width and length and fit like US 10.5s rather than 11, which is my consistent size. The proper conversion for me would have been to size down 1/2 from my U.S. size. Embarrassing since i should have been able to figure this out. Maybe I wasn't of the correct mind - I was like a kid in a candy store.

    Unfortunately for me, I will have to put them up on B&S. Each of them (except the monkstrap pair, which is brand new) have been worn very lightly once or twice. So some SFers will be getting some great shoes, at my loss and your gain. But fortunately, the brother-in-law is from Barcelona, so he will be able to pick me up the shoes in the correct size on his next trip (I hope).

    Does anyone have the Carmina Saddle Cordovan Brogue Captoe Oxford - Robert Last or the Tan Calf Penny Loafer - Queens Last? These would be great for spring/summer. Since the winter weather is less desirable for wearing nice shoes because of snow/ice and salt, I'm looking forward to buying a nice pair of spring/summer shoes.

    Well it's the monkstrap split toe (first shoe on the right in the group shot). Awesome shoe.

    The Claudio Coello store is awesome and so are the shoes. Very well constructed and comfortable. I will probably show around next month and get the double monks in my avatar... the Simpson last looks great!

    Congratulations on your purchases!

    Still something about Carmina that I just don't trust. Can't put my finger on it.
