    Are the Malvern only in the one size?

    Yes, it's from our odd stock.

    Too much brogueing would make the model less formal, so I would stay with the medallion without any cap (even the u-cap) I don't think an austerity u-cap would give a nice result.
    Concerning the sole, if majority leans toward dainite soles, then I will be fine with it.



    I am glad you like it too. I will try to write it more neatly this week.

    Quote:I would be VERY interested in this boot on the Robert last, assuming Carmina can offer a very deep, dark midnight blue. I would not be interested in any remotely denim-looking shade for a dressy bal boot. Forest is also a deal-breaker for me. Dainite soles.

    I've got the Carmina U-wing bal boot in burgundy museum on order with GF, so I would pass on a second burgundy Carmina bal boot.

    Quote: You did link the the u-cap balmoral boot. Therefore I thought the model was an option.

    But I wanted the upper leather to cover the under leather, see the maftei balmoral shoe below.

    Just throwing the out some ideas.

    Both are my size but I cannot decide between Malvern and Beaulieu. And no, buying both is not an option...

    I am envious of your dilemma. Both are a 1/2 size small for me.

    I'm not in for the boot but I have navy shell and calf from carmina - the calf is a bit darker and more subtle.

    Beaulieu would be my choice, such a great shoe in that color

    ps: I'm really charmed by the purple lining, would that be possible?
