    Just kidding. They're gorgeous. I wish I had them. I planned on purchasing them, but you took my size before me.

    @Leaves What can we expect this A/W for new boot makeups from Carmina? Anything on the detroit?

    Seconding this question. Any chance of a restock of that grey calf/vision suede balmoral boot or something similarly cool? I would order it from you now if you still had it in stock in a 9.5, wish I'd realised about it earlier...

    Are these all this dark or did I just get a extra tanned one?

    I think the darker ones in your photo look better for what it's worth [​IMG]

    Probably just the lighting.

    Carmina finishes their shoes by hand so the color might vary from batch to batch. The lighting might also vary slightly in different pictures. As such, some colors may vary in real life.

    I like the real life picture better--maybe it is the lighting in the stock photo. I would have acted sooner if I knew they were darker It was only after trolling the web a little that I saw photos like yours and then Skoaktiebolaget was out of the restock in my size. A great looking shoe and wears really well with that color trouser.

    I think the new batch came our really nice and deep in color but I agree it's darker than the old stock photos, I'm going to have to shoot this again.

    I'm interested in this, too.

    It would be great to see some wingtip boots or some captoe blucher boots in brown shell cordovan on a more round-toed, rustic last for autumn-winter.

    We have a lot of exciting stuff incoming this F/W season. What I want to mention is that all our Carmina models are specified by us, Carmina does not have a set stock list, so most of the models you see on our web are only offered by us. This is a list of our incoming F/W models. There are a few surprises incoming as well, stay tuned for these. The below list can also be found here , where it will be updated regularly. Please note that this list may be subject to change.
