    In that case, Carmina is your best bet. They really are super shoes and easily on a level with C&J. My preference is aesthetic, Carmina's tend to be more European in style, as you'd expect! Have fun shopping there.

    They had a notice in their window recently declaring that Paris prices were now the same as those in Madrid (previously Carmina Paris had been pricier). I bought a pair of Cordovan boots there for 450 euros (an absolute steal - they are terrific boots). As far as I can remember, these were the most expensive shoes in the shop.

    Leather shoes were around 250-350 euros if I recall correctly. Cheaper than C&J where prices are 350-550 euros. In terms of quality of build and in comparison to the prices of English shoes available in Paris, Carmina is very good value.

    I happen to prefer C&J shoes and styles in calf leather, but love Carmina's Cordovan. Plus I enjoy the atmosphere and service in C&J's Paris boutiques.

    That is great price. I paid 420 for a pair of cordovan wingtips in February when ordering directly from Spain. Don't know whether VAT was deducted or not.
    thanks for the reply, HHD. much appreciated.

    i don't have much to spend, so it's between 2 pairs from carmina and 1 pair from c&j.

    momma said 2 is better than 1.

    - Who would you chose - once Kate or twice Pete?
    - Kate is great. But twice is twice. [​IMG]

    Nobody hier from Mallorca, from Palma or from Inca?
    Ningun Mallorquino que puede comprar los zapatos por nosotros?

    The flagshipstore of Carmina is located in Palma de Mallorca and the factory outlet in Inca/Mallorca.
    In Inca you can find the factory outlets of George's (George Coll), Barrats 1890, Munper, Lottusse and YANKO...


    never found the outlets when I was there

    All the recent praise for Carmina seem to come from the ones that The Armoury are selling, but I think Toiletduck said some of those are made up with special leather that they've commissioned. Are the other Carminas just as good?

    I've been living in Barcelona for a couple of months now, so my knowledge is limited on this issue. Nevertheless my experience is that their own store is the only place to find them.
    In any case prices were lower than I expected, so I'd go there. Well, actually I'll go shopping there in a couple of weeks when June is over (damned Non Purchase Club! [​IMG])

    In their parisian shop, prices start at 295 € up to 350 €, depending on model.
    Cordovan shoes are retailed around 500 € i think.

    Well, from what I saw prices ranged from aprox. 150 € for a pair of suede loafers to around 575 € for cordovan boots.

    But those are extremes. Most of them where somewhere around 350 €. So I wouldn't expect to spend less than 350 € because you'll want to buy them all.

    I was in Madrid last week. At the window display on the Madrid shop the prices were €340 for a pair or nice brogues in suede and €495 for Cordovan.

    In El Cortes Ingles (just across the road) they have Santoni FAM, Church's and Allen Edmonds for €+500.
    All the other spanish brands (Barrats, George's and Yanko were around €230. Magnanni's shoes were at €180 if I am correct.
