    Hmm, wow thanks for the pics. I think they need to do a better job with pics for these pre-orders. That shoe looks completely different from the shoe in this picture. And I don't want to be a jerk but the bottom picture's color reminds me of a turd. Can you tell me which picture more resembles the color in real life?

    Hmm, those look miles better than those depicted in the email. I was probably going to cancel based on that email, but now I might have to reconsider. Will still decide when I handle the shoes in the store tho.

    ^ Awesome collection and picture. Love those all but the norvegese shell boot is awesome in particular. Thoughts on quality of the shell vs. Carmina?

    Is the top balmoral boot (labeled Frankenstitch by mistake) in calf or shell?

    Thank you for pointing that out Budapest12, indeed I did get mixed up ... too many shoes :) I have corrected the labels now hopefully !

    The Meermin shell (Rocinante Tannery, Argentina) is definitely not as rich and deep as Horween's however I must say that after 2 years (for the black boots) they are performing quite well.

    I cannot praise the team at Skoak more and have also always had very good relationship with Meermin. The dark blue Norvegese Cap Toe Derby Boots are Meermin MTO and just arrived a few days ago. I was expecting a more vibrant blue but overall a beautiful pair.

    Agreed! Now I need to go see a hypnotist and try and forget about them for 5 months or so. Good things I have. Few other things due in between now and then
