    How often does skoak get new colors? I'm looking for a carmina jumper in burgundy or brown. Not really liking black. I'm finally ready to try a Carmina shoe

    New Edward Green styles available.

    Edward Green Laughton in Nightshade Calf, 890 Last, F-fitting (wide).

    Edward Green Newbury in Black Calf, 890 Last, E-fitting (normal).

    We also have two UK 9 pairs of the Edward Green Shannon VIII in Dark Oak.

    Most Shannon pairs were pre-booked and we also had severe delays on this style due to many pairs never making it through quality control (they were initially supposed to be delivered in September).

    Hmmm, seems the Shannon is in the new batch of doak which is darker & relatively boring.

    @Leaves, please comment on the fitting of 890. Mine is to size like 202/606

    I think the Shannon in this batch looks really nice and has a deep, great finish.

    I'd say it fits very similar to 82 and 888, but slightly more elongated.

    Other than saying "it fits wrong", what does it mean when a shoe blisters just the top of each big toe? I have a pair that I bought a few years ago (not from Skoak) that do this and I am trying to figure out what exactly causes it. They don't blister on the heel, just the big toes. They don't seem to be slipping on the heels either. Is it just my foot moving around to much in the toe box? I know this is not specifically related to Skoak but I want to learn so I can avoid this error again and this thread is one of my go to threads.

    That almost always means that there's too much space between the leather and your big toe so that the leather is not creasing "with" your toes but rather creasing "into" your toes.

    There are a couple of ways you can resolve this:

    1. Use insole to reduce the space between the leather and your big toes. If your heel already fits then you may want to use a front half insole so that it does not disturb the fit in the heel area.

    2. Or in my case, the heel and the small toes already fit very well. Hence when I put an insole, while it solved the big toe problem it caused other problems around the heel and the small toe areas. My solution was to put a heel pad on the inside lining where there's too much space between the leather and the big toe. So far it has worked like a charm (see attached picture)

    YMMV, but I hope this helps

    Damn. Beautiful.

    Any top down pics of the 890 vs the 82 or vs the MH71 possibly?

    Yup! Once mine arrive (later batch), they will rotate nicely with their siblings.
