+1 African styling?
lol! I'd agree with you in that Carmina's styling in general would not hold up well at all if held up to English shoe making styles as copies thereof. They seem more related to Europe than to Britian to me. Although I couldn't tell you why.
The throat line?
In first try with the Simpson, I am experiencing the same thing. Where as the Rain felt perfect. I think with wear it should be ok.
Almost embarrassed to post here as this falls so far under the bar. I was at the AE shoe vault to get a pair of strawfut, ended up going home with a pair of Elgin's with the burnished toe. I have all intention on using these for casual/beat-on duty.

... the Facing.
- so the Simpson is low volume around the instep. Does it have a high arch?
Yes, just above the throat line, judging by a photo of where it is.
don't tie them too tight during the break in phase. loosen the laces during the day. let them loose e.g. while you're sitting at your desk. tie them again after a while.
don't wear the shoes for a whole day as long they are not broken in.
these are pretty much basics.
what's that? i wanna learn. imo, a foot can have a high arch, while a shoe unlikely not.
Thanks for the advice fritzl, the shoes had about 10 wears and still no good for me.
sorry to hear that. good luck.
They're gone to a good home. Thanks
sounds like you have a high instep.
Never be embarrassed to post! In my opinion, it's better to post something you love that's NOT been seem on these pages (at least not for an age) than to post the same monotony. Good show.
Wonderful shell Norwegian pics are now in the archive! thanks.
