    ^ Those are great. Has Carmina peaked at the hype circle?

    The model is 907. I think Carmina names all their models by number.

    Carmina is a machine made shoe. Rain last is an excellent, easy to fit, chisel toe last IMHO.

    I would say it's a medium width.

    Did you get those at the Armoury, or the Carmina shop? They are awesome.

    Their shop in Paris. I was there in late April. Met the shop manager Luis Cepeda. Great guy.

    I wasn't planning to buy any more semi-brogue as I have a few pairs already. But when I spotted that tan pair in the window, I said to myself that this would be ANOTHER pair.
