    Nice pick up! How would you compare the shell to Alden shell?

    I've read some folks describe the Carmina as drier, others say it's superior.

    @NAMOR - that's a terrific pair - congrats! On the lighter end of the cognac spectrum for Carmina.

    Heinrich Dinkelacker shell budapester, Rio last, Dark Cognac color. Was a bit worried about chunkiness but it's quite nice in person. Soles thicker but not too bad and feel quite comfortable. Last feels similar to P2 with a little more toe room in terms of width and height which is perfect for me. Finishing feels neater than Vass
