But this offer is only good until April 19th so you have 4 days to get your orders in before the deal of a lifetime goes away. Wishing everyone health and […]

Chelseas with a Twist – Carmina Shoemaker

Its refreshing to see Chelsea boots in some sort of dark burgundy/merlot color. In this case Plum Museum Calf. I never understood why this color has not caught on more with the extremely popular boot style: the chelsea. For me, this color goes with everything that a brown calfskin can. And potentially even more and also look better. Yet its very rare that you see one. Naturally I was excited to see this MTO option […]

Carmina GMTO – Fur Lined Boots

Carmina has recently launched a killer GMTO run of 4 Fur Lined boots for the Winter.

Carmina on The Marketplace

The Unlined Collection by Carmina Shoemaker
