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

    Also took the plunge on these. Had to, with this pricing.

    This is great, congrats! I wonder if Pat has set a new record for EG orders.

    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")
