• Carmina

    Based on the island of Mallorca, Carmina has been making Goodyear-welted shoes since 1866.  The brand was ‘revamped’ and relaunched about twenty years ago and has since then become well-established within the menswear scene.

    Carmina’s creations have a slender curviness, distinct from the slightly more chunky style of traditional English shoes.
