    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Those 100+ year old black calf/loden suede button closure mid boots that belonged to Jose's grandfather are badass.

    Thanks. I'm all ready to pull the trigger now. Just hoping 10.5UK in Inca last = 10.5UK in Uetam last. I couldn't find much on that in the Carmina sizing thread. Hopefully the gentlemen at skoaktiebolaget can reassure me once more.

    Thanks MrJester, I'm going to copy paste here from our e-mail conversation for others to read about the fit, I hope you don't mind.

    In regards of fit; Inca and Rain are wide lasts. Inca is the widest Carmina last. Uetam fits very similar to Simpson, which is a slightly narrow last. Some people size up on Simpson. But then again some people, including myself, size down in loafers because they rest differently on the foot.

    I sent you am email on this as well but, when you open, I'll take a half measure up. I've read a few cases on people returning the shoe because it was too tight.

    Now hurry and take my money. :D

    Agreed! Would actually love a pair myself. A remake would be awesome, maybe of the black/loden suede or saddle shell with dark brown buttons, or even black shell bottom/saddle upper.

    Carmina don't make button boots anymore, you guys have to wait until the Bonafè button boots arrive. :)

    Colour for button boots is Black Calf/Grey Suede. We will have one pair of button boots in Brown Calf/Brown Suede as well in UK 9.5, this was supposed to be for display but of course if anyone is interested... Price is 6500 SEK (5200 SEK ex VAT). There will be the possibility to do MTOs (+15% of base model). Minimum requirement for a group MTO is only 3 pairs. :nodding:

    Just wanted to see if there were any more takers on the new pre-order system for fall. Looks like the only model we will go ahead with is the 532 Longwing in Cognac Cordovan. PM or e-mail us if you want in. sales@skoaktiebolaget.se

    EDIT: Pre Orders close April 30.

    Would probably go for those if they weren't cognac. I'm trying to check of other colors in my shoe closet atm.

    BTW, how much thicker is a double dainite than a single dainite? For comparison, which one was used on the MTO cognac jumper boot?

    We used a double dainite sole on the jumper boot. Single dainite is like a normal single leather sole.

    I have a suede chukka with a single dainite and i wouldn't use that on a winter shoe of two reasons. First it will be cold and second you feel stones through the sole because it's so thin. I would rather use a double leather for fall/winter.
