Skoak is a great vendor (with their own affiliate thread). Fantastic customer service and it's quite rare to pay customs for their packages, even though they do everything 100% legit. One of the more competitively priced retailers for sure.
From a recent MTO discussion with Skoak, the list they gave me was: Dark brownSand/noixSnuffTobaccoLodenNavyBlack
I have a handful of outstanding GMTOs (and a single MTO) of my own, but as I told Steve, I get the feeling that if I didn't hop on the U boots I would hate myself upon their release.
Just confirmed with Steve that I'm in for the leather soled U wing boot, so I think we now make 5!
One of the perks of being a young guy: Most of my shoes are "F U" shoes, and I wouldn't have it any other way. 
Very nice. Do you guys have any experience shining museum calf? Does it take well to a nice waxing, or does the color variation make the shine look weird at all? My problem with Dainite isn't the profile (I actually have a pair of Carmina jumper boots on Dainite which are surprisingly sleek), but just the feel of it when I'm walking. I have no need for it with fairly mild Virginia weather and overshoes for particularly rainy days, and I much prefer the clicking and tapping...
I'm interested in the leather sole option (counted myself out of the Dainite GMTO for sure), but I'm not sure how I feel about museum calf. I know this is a mockup, but do you know of any photos of Carmina's museum calf that we could reference?
What I've most commonly heard is: Full brogue referring to a wingtip with medallion/general punching.Half brogue referring to a cap toe with medallion.Quarter brogue referring to a punched cap toe without a medallion. But I've also heard a lot of dispute over the differences in what defines a "half" or "quarter" brogue, and the arguments on either side are usually rather pedantic. This was just restocked about a month ago, so it's going to take a while for it to crop up...
While setting up a recent personal MTO with skoak for a rain-lasted bal boot, they told me exactly that: A rain bal boot will have more room on the instep.
What's a HAF sole? Everything else sounds fantastic, including the other color combinations. I'm definitely interested.
