Ready To Wear shoes (Carmina) Part Two

In the quest for good elegant, stylish Gents shoes, which are Goodyear welted, Carmina a Spanish shoemaker can not be overlooked. The company is not that old, however produces very classical, lasts and very well done shoes. They offer a variety of models to choose from and also offer Ladies shoes.

Carmina Shoemaker is also one of the few European shoemakers who will work with Cordovan.

Less talk, something for the eye.

For the Nordic countries, Shell boots will be ideal, as they can cope and tolerate the snow and sluggish wet weather of the Nordic. Problem for me wth Cordovan is, it is very hard to break in, but once done, the shoes will mould and fit to your feet ike a glove to a hand. Remember that Shell ages very well. 

This is a great boot, very formal, classic, nice round toe last.
I would do away with the baby speed hooks.
Lastly the price is very good for the Carmina products.
