    Is there a permanent stock for Gaziano Girling shoes like you have for Edward Green? Thanks!

    G&G does not have a proper permanent stock but all the styles on their website shop is considered stock styles and can be ordered from any retailer without an extra surcharge. For our store we consider the following styles more or less permanent: Gable, Sinatra, St.James II, Cambridge (in the leathers shown on our website). Our goal is to always have a decent stock of these.

    Carmina soles:

    Dainite (actually, it's not an proper Dainite, it's called Silver and is not produced by Harboro Rubber Co. Ltd)
    [​IMG]

    Victory rubber sole (similar to Ridgeway)
    [​IMG]

    Tomir sole (stitched on 3/4 rubber). We use these a lot, very popular.
    [​IMG]

    Tramuntana sole, thin 3/4 rubber sole similar to Vibram Commando sole, bit not as heavy. We discontinued it and replaced it with the Victory sole because we had some clients complaining about the rubber tip of the sole being worn down (this is natural in that kind of sole but it caused us some grief).
    [​IMG]

    Crepe sole. It's a little wobbly to walk and it's not very nice from an aesthetic point of view but it performs well on snow and ice.

    Single leather.

    York sole. We have phased this sole out because it causes issues in production and I feel the introduction of the Tomir has made it obsolete.

    All Carmina soles comes if 3-4 different weights and most can be made with a storm welt. 360 welt can also be specified for most soles.

    Great info, thanks!

    I personally find their crepe sole very sturdy and as you say performs well in adverse conditions.

    Leaves,

    Does Carmina offer the true Ridgeway sole (not Victory, but actual Ridgeway)?

    Thanks!

    To be honest I can't specifically remember when the official announcement notifying us about the upcoming world changing announcement was going to occur, because things have been a Blurrrrrrrrrrrrr ever since. However I've been counting down the days and the hours ever since. LOL


    We're just counting on @Leaves to deliver as usual.[​IMG]

    I'm really hoping that Leaves wakes up at 12:01am Sweden to post his announcement. I took Tuesday off from work for the impending celebration.

    Sorry Ryden, can't plead I'm a newbie anymore, but I'm very tech challenged!
