Mike previously stated that the Austerity boot will be rolled out with at least two (maybe three; I don't remember) different styles, hence the lists we're all making. Ruby was one of the earliest ideas, and I think that's as close to locked down as any of the styles are, but Mike is definitely planning some other colors/materials. Edit: Also, what's a dover sole?
I'm still hoping that someone who ordered these (it might have been you, but I'm not sure) will update with photos. The preview pic from Betty gave the Cognac shell too light of a color for my liking, and I'm wondering if it was just the photo, or a light batch of the shell. I have bal boots on Forest, and two monks on Inca, and a 9UK fits me perfectly on both lasts. No experience with Robert until that Skoaktiebolaget MTO comes through.
Ooh, I hadn't considered a full suede option for the Austerity boot. I might not be in for it, seeing as I'll pick up at least one of the calf/shell options, but it would surely be a beautiful boot. For anyone who doesn't have experience with Carmina's suede, it's divine. When taking my Snuff monks to a local shoe store/cobbler for taps, he commented on how beautiful the suede was, and it's aged well so far.
The Python rerun is really tempting, but I think I'll end up sitting this one out so that I can pick up some subtler low shoes first.
Speaking of which, are we doing a Snuff Austerity brogue again? Also, what's the story on the calf/suede and Scotchgrain reruns?
