    Beautiful makeup! Would have jumped on that one had my budget not been limited to one pair (I have a pair of brown suede plain captoe oxfords on the Simpson last already). Carmina suede is phenomenal, looking forward to seeing photos soon!

    I just love this makeup so much. I'm so happy with mine.

    On another note, I'm curious as to some sizing. I've found my pair of these on the 74945 is quite snug (in a good way). Do you have any other Enzo boots on other lasts? Do you think their boots run a little larger than their shoes? I feel like these fit me very similar to my 804 and 363MOD shoes, and was wondering if that's because of the last at all.

    Had it on at skoab so it does not qualify as use but the impression was look of the Oscar but with the wiggle room of Soller for the toes and a higher toe box.. Not that much more room though so you would size down though

    If I recall correctly Gabriel had a lengthy elaboration of the fit at my visit and should naturally be able to comment the general fitting in the normal excellent skoab style

    Wow, you take a half size LARGER in 74945 than 946? I am the exact REVERSE. 363 Mod (bal boot) 74945 (button boot and chukka) = all UK8.5. 946 derby boot = UK9.

    I will second this you can also order directly off their website. I have about 10 pairs. The laces are great, cheap and come in a variety of colours and lengths/widths.

    Hi guys,


    I'm new here, this forum popped up during my search for some new boots - so hi!

    I'm after some advice.

    I've recently caught the bug of liking nice, well made shoes and boots after I bought a nice pair of Joseph Cheaney Maidstone Brogues for my wedding.

    I'm after some Black boots and I was initially looking at the Cheaney Elliot Boot but I've stumbled across the Carmina Balmoral Boot.

    I have a slim foot and like how the Cheaney's that I have fit (nice and slim / streamlined). The Cheanye's are an F fitting on last 205. I'm wondering how the Carmina Balmoral's fit and whether they would be similar to the fit that i'm after?

    Also, i'm normally a UK9 but the Cheaney's fit best in an UK8.5. Does anyone know if this would be the size to get for the Balmoral's too?

    Many thanks guys - great forum!


    Cheers,
    Darren

    These are so good! Every time I see them I am impressed. One day I'm going to create a pair very similar to this. But in a deep deep green.
