    The Carmina's are at a ridiculous price right now. Trying to decide between two Carminas or one EG (or GG)!

    One EG or GG. If you don't buy them when they are cheap it'll be even harder to justify when they are expensive.

    Edit:
    Oh and I've owned three Carminas, all suede in case NAMOR challenges my credentials

    im curious, what carmina have you owned? and how would you compare it to your EG? i recall patrik saying that Carmina is one of the best values in shoe. i completely agree with him

    I haven't owned any Carmina, I have just fondled them quite a bit at my local retailer. I agree that they are a great value, but the build quality is not there compared to my EG. IMHO.

    ^ EG build quailty isnt $600 better thats for fucking sure. Eg wont last longer either. they only feel $600 better because we've paid $600 more


    it is crazy.the 25% carmina suede ucap mto downpayment is less than $100

    Could be.
    I didn't realize your question was combative in nature. I thought you were asking my opinion and not looking for an answer you already had in mind.

    its not a fight with you tifosi. i love my eg and carmina alike. i think maybe need to get banned from this site. could we vote me off the island? i find my tone is increasingly skeptical and negative. like a job ive outgrown, i feel like i need to move on. but i dont know what else id do with myself while taking a shit

    @othertravelSomething to consider is free shipping kicks in at 8000 sek so you'll probably need 3 Carminas or a carmina and stock EG to push it over. That's when the deal is really sweet.

    All i can think about when i read comments like that is "Hmm, what would DW say?" I feel you though, you know you have been on SF too long when you can see the quibbles coming... :hide:
