1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Cheers,

    I might be able to help. My wife has a pair of bluchers on the Madison last, if that helps.

    Can vouch that 74945 last is chiseled but not overly so and supremely comfortable from the first wear (though the instep is definitely higher than any Carmina shoe I've ever tried).

    I think you should maybe ask them directly, our Women's offering is very limited and we will probably not expand this. I think this is a great place to ask too though. My wife is a solid EU 38 and she wears UK 5.5 in most Carmina lasts. @LA Guy might also be able to help, he got a pair from us to his wife too (actually same style I got for my wife if I recall correctly).

    My wife is a us 9, eu 39, and the UK size 6 fit perfectly. The size 5.5 was too small.

    My gf is usually 6.5US, 37EU and takes 4 in Carmina. If she wears specific brands I can probably give you what my gf wears for them. The jodhpur boot is really nice, I got one for my gf

    An amusing bit of trivia, in many Asian cultures there is a (rather ridiculous) superstition, about buying shoes for one's partner, it's considered bad luck for the relationship. As your partner would "run away". Haha.

    Could be considered good luck depending on one's circumstances. ;)

    In our little corner of Asia it's also considered bad luck to give shoes to one's partner but for a different reason. It's believed that the by giving footwear to your partner you're allowing that person to step on you. Our quick fix is we always give a token payment (like 1 peso) to the giver to formally make it a purchase rather than a gift.

    I've heard a variant of that in the United States: Never give your girlfriend shoes or she'll walk away from you.

    Eh you guys, the trick is to give your girlfriends only those shoes she can wear for a very limited amount of time :devil:
