    Does anyone know if GG last MH71 is wider than TG73?

    I am mostly concerned about the toe box. The TG73 seem to have a sharper taper which I currently own and if the MH71 is wider by just a bit it would be even better

    I was personally hoping to have it made in the vegano marron colour. But let's see if we can work something out if this gmto has enough participants. Full calf balmorals haven't been carried by many retailers recently.

    Carmina does not have official swatch book and that makes it difficult for us to determine colors. I really do not know what vegans brown means, what natur brown means etc etc. maybe @Skoaktiebolaget can shed some light onto this matter.

    I don't have the general SF aversion to wearing leather soles after rain, or even in rain. After all, my ancestors did it and it was good enough for them. The single dainite makes this better but not perfect for me. Oh well, I will give it some thought.

    It looks like Aa full calf version is gathering more interest than a combo. If combo does not take off I might consider joinig a calf version of this boot.
    Fllick you proposed this, do you want to take a lead and count the members interested in this?

    I'd be in for a full calf version. Could we do brown Museum calf?

    Talking about museum calf: I wonder how much extra € that will be. Also on the upcoming Inca captoes.

    I'll like to propose a gmto for the carmina 80092 model in full calf in the elusive Robert last.


    Currently interested members: @fllick , @laufer , @appoooh , @JARB , @itraxx
    We need 2 more members to qualify for this gmto.
    Interested members please quote and add your name in.Thank you.
    Could @Skoaktiebolaget give us a quote for the colour of either boot? Thanks!

    Specs: 80092 balmoral boot
    eyelets: 10: 6 blind 4 speed hooks
    colour: dark brown, museum calf? (I'm fine with either and will go with the majority)
    Soles: Dainite rubber soles

    The boot looks like this

    I would be in for dark brown museum calf but I believe Carmina only uses burgundy museum calf right now. @Leaves can shed more light on this.

    I don't think so because an Inca oxford in brown museum calf is incoming:

    Full calf is fine for me too. The only other constraint would be that its sole must support rainy weather.
