    Just to start discussing preferences on the sole, my first preference is Dainite so the entire sole is covered. My understanding is with a Tomir sole that the mid part of the sole is exposed. Thoughts?

    I'm interested as well in a more generous last for a split toe derby. I'll stay tuned for details.

    Noix Suede is a tough sell. It looks great on, but people generally think it looks too yellow when presented in the shop or online.

    I'll have to let this run until mid March, so new price will be 3520 SEK. Price for high boots has actually gone up more than regular shoes (+10%).


    Confirmation pending on the Rain last and Hatch Grain.


    I like Hatch Grain when G&G does it but they can take a lot more time with the burnish, that's not possible at Carmina's price point. They finish it by hand but the end result is very hard to predict, so you might end up with something much darker or much lighter than you'd expect and that's not ideal for a pre-order where everyone pays up front and we offer no returns. I'd hate ending up with people dissatisfied with their shoes because inconsistency in the coloring phase. We basically have the same problem with the hand finished Carmina Grain Jumper. This new batch that's incoming in March is the lightest one yet.


    For a pair of Carmina, I would not bother sending them back to them for a resole. I mean, if you are a brick and mortar client and you can drop them off at our shop, then yeah it kinda makes sense, but to send them from North America to Spain and then back, with all the hassle with customs and stuff, I'd just take them to a good local cobbler.



    The new MTO G&G surcharge is 2000 SEK ex VAT. The new MTO EG surcharge is 1600 SEK ex VAT.



    Confirmation pending.



    Confirmation pending. But guys, can you please agree on a color? It will be hard to organize if we have not decided?

    The stock Carmina bal boots are on Forest and half rubber sole (that's Tomir I'm guessing). The proposed boot is on robert last with Dainite. Also not sure whether the brown in Carminas site is same to the dark brown used in RogerP boot. If they are the same the shoes IRL look so much better.
