    Gabriel,
    Thanks, what about the soles? Full rubber commando or combination rubber/leather commando. I would prefer a full rubber commando soles.

    The top of the vamp and sides are lined too. It's pretty thin and compresses easily...doesn't feel like you're cramming your foot into an UGG. [​IMG]

    Thanks, this helps. With the warm insole it could be good for winter.
    My Galways are lined only on shafts and are damned cold like ordinary (non-lined) boots.

    maybe this is the answer for me: if two find that this soller-lasted boot fits them the same as a standard width rain-lasted shoe, then the soller last will be too narrow for me because the standard width rain last is too narrow for me. A drag.

    I guess I will pose the question: is a soller last akin to an "e" width in U.S. sizing or more narrow than that? Thank you.

    These are nowhere near a US "E". I'm 10D US TTS and the Soller 9 is pretty much perfect (at least with this lining). I happen to be wearing a 9.5D Lindrick today, and those feel more like an "E" after trying on the Carmina.

    Thank you for your prompt reply. I appreciate it. Not the news I wanted to hear, but better than buying shoes that don't fit. Thanks again.

    I was part of the GMTO for the Dark Cognac Jumper Boots from Carmina, but due to certain circumstances I will not be able to wear these for quite a while, so I am hoping to sell them (in a sense). If anybody is interested, it would be as if you were purchasing from Skaok directly.

    Here are the details:
    Boot: Carmina Jumpers
    [​IMG]
    Color: Dark Cognac (Note: Should be similar to the above, but may not be exact)
    Last: Oscar Last (I believe this fits similarly to the Forest last)
    Price: Approx. $720 - excluding VAT (This could change, but I believe it is a fairly good deal relative to other Carmina retailers)
    Size: 9 UK / 10 US

    Please PM me for details and / or any questions.

    Thanks!

    Is anyone able to give somewhat of an idea what the exchange rate is for US dollars if it's different than what Google shows? Thanks.

    I found that we don't pay the actual exchange rate. Paying through paypal or CC usually means getting charged a little more (service charges, etc...).

    Shipping to Canada by trackable post takes about a week. Going by the tracking, the package generally seems to spend most of that time taking a scenic tour of Sweden. [​IMG] Once it departs Sweden, it gets to me right quick. But it's still about a week overall.
