    ^^^ I have the reverse problem - you guys have too many VERY appealing boots in my size and I can't have them all.

    ^^^ Sounds nice J.

    I have a pair of tan Bonafe derby boots inbound from Skoak, so a shorter wait for me.

    I put together this little Carmina last comparison, I hope no one beat me to it. :) Our most popular lasts are Forest, Rain and Simpson. Soller, Oscar and Detroit are also very popular, but unfortunately I was out of stock in the Detroit last so I could not include it. Here is a link to out website with the guide: http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/pages/carmina-last-comparison

    And for your convenience, here are the pictures:

    The pictures are 1200 px wide, I think that should be large enough to get a good view. All pictures are of UK 9 sized pairs. All pictured lasts are in the Carmina default width.

    Wow, to my eyes Soller looks much longer than Rain. I hope I am wrong on this.

    Thanks guys! Bonafe derby boots sounds great too.

    You're most welcome, and thanks for your as always impeccable customer service! Now I'm thinking about bribing Daniel to manipulate the MTO queue so that my order will get up on top of the list [​IMG]

    Great Carmina last comparison!
