    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.

    I would be interested in repeat of these if Carmina is willing to work with hatch grain leather again. @Leaves or @GabrielOB can you check with Carmina on availability of hatch grain leather?

    A recap on the GMTO proposal for a Carmina Split toe derby in model 80189 on Soller last or Rain (if Carmina is willing to do this)

    Interested people are:

    1- Me in either Brown or Burgundy plain calf or hatchgrain,
    2- A friend of mine in either Brown or Burgundy plain calf or hatchgrain,
    3- @Pbayvip in either Brown or Burgundy plain calf or hatchgrain,
    4- @Fred G. Unn in either Brown or Burgundy plain calf or hatchgrain,
    5- @cowsgomoomoo in either Brown or Burgundy plain calf or hatchgrain,
    6- @bamgrinus in Burgundy
    7- @urban in Brown
    8- @IGotId in Brown
    9- @New Shoes1 only if made on the Rain last in Burgundy

    to be confirmed:

    10- @Jazzmenco
    11- @mcl911
    12- @ErikW

    Numbers seem good, I will contact @Leaves to see how to proceed in confirming with Carmina which options are available and then inform all the interested people.
    Probably I will do this with private messages in order not to "pollute" this thread.
    Gents, thanks to you all for your interest!

    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.





    :hide:



    +1


    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.
