    New house slippers just arrived, straight from Skoak. Thanks very much Patrik and Gabriel for all your advice and fantastic customer service. These are jumper boots, black horse's ass, model 80814, size 9 on Oscar last. Soft as cashmere and tough as nails. Go figure.
    How come these look different to the ones pictured on the site?

    I received my boots too. I decided to keep them despite the victory soles. My observations about the fit are the same. Definitely roomy in the toe area but very low instep. I do not know why is this but maybe this will stretch since this is derby boot and there is no stitching across this area. Length and width wise they are fine, I took the same size as the Rain last but these boots definitely feel very tight. Maybe this is due to the Carmina compensating for the fur lining? The leather feels stiff. We will see how they hold up. Soller is definitely good looking boot last.

    First time doing business with Skoaktiebolaget and beyond thrilled. Huge thanks to Gabriel for the stellar customer service! I probably emailed him 15x, and he thoroughly and promptly responded to each one.

    Enzo Bonafe "burgundy beauties" and Carmina tobacco suede chukkas. My first experience with both makers. I added Skoak cherry shoe trees too. Awesomeness all around.

    Seconded. Skoak should get permission to use those pics of the "burgundy beauty" - hadn't realised the depth of the colour from the shots on their site, but when I see it there they look absolutely amazing. That's the rich burgundy colour I want when I finally get a burgundy shoe.

    Note to self: make another effort to try on something in Carmina Rain so you have a better idea of whether those things will fit well or not (I'm not hopeful unfortunately, my feet like long slim lasts not roomy lasts).

    It's an incredibly handsome shade of burgundy.

    Cheers, gentlemen. Skoak's pictures are great, but these are a wonder to behold in person. Here are some additional pics in different lighting.

    Gorgeous. I want to MTO that with no punching or brogueing but for a punched captoe. Same last, same color. Anyone? (Also open to the stated design with claret museum calf.)
