    I would be interested in a Carmina split toe in burnished or dark brown. Rain or Soller is fine for me too.

    Does anyone have experience with Oscar? I have wide feet- 7UK Detroit is good, 7.5 in rain is too tight in the toe, 8UK in Robert is ok but has slight heel slip. I was wondering whether I'd be 7.5 or 8 UK Oscar based on this info. (My Detroit and Robert lasted shoes are bluchers and I'm looking at a blucher boot on Oscar.)

    Thanks!

    I was thinking about a slight burnishing, something like this

    Hm, I've really been interested in a split toe lately but I have too many dark brown shoes right now. Good luck, though!

    Thanks, maybe, if @urban agrees, we can do that in dark burgundy... or stick with the brown or dark brown but in hatchgrain leather...

    @bamgrinus - i have the exact opposite problem. I have too many burgundy shoes.

    @Macs - I am fine with dark brown in hatchgrain or brown.....

    Let's see if we can find others with a split toe 'need'....... before finalising the details...

    Nah, I'm going to be wearing my "gold" Galways!

    And yes, congrats to all those who got in on the doak/CC Galway preorder. I was severely tempted at that price.

    Thanks! And agree, for grain calf round toe sounds more congruent. Albeit split toe asks for a soft chisel IMO.
    Am I making sense?
    (I like how that tickles the tongue "softly chiseled")
