I realized the Leffot is now selling Exclusives, but not MTO Exclusives with changes to the designs like AFPOS does with Handgrade models. It's a completely different service than standard Exclusive range shoes.
I'm sure AFPOS will advise us soon of how this will all play out, including MTO.
When I spoke with Leffot about a year ago, they were only doing MTO Handgrade, not Exclusive. Plus, without this site or similar others consolidating Exclusive MTO of six, no store will ever get six MTO of the same shoe and type in the Exclusive range.
I hope we can continue to do MTO special runs with AFPOS. If not, Chay Cooper will lose a lot of business and it won't be made up for with...
No date announced, other than the 4th in the Dunk and Egg series will be released first. ADwD paperback will be out with the show at the end of March. Love the cross marketing.The Dunk and Egg may be out for Christmas 2013.Winds of Winter, I think we're looking at mid-2014 if we're lucky. And George's body doesn't give out. He's like a combination of Doran Martell and Magister Illyrio.
I have the 348, which I find a bit narrow in a 7.5UK and the 363 boot last, which I find to be nearly perfect in an 8UK. But, with boots, due to the ankle lacing, there's much less chance of heel slippage, which was the problem with the 348 in size 8.I'm an 8.5US on the brannock. I have narrow heels, so heel slippage is common, but I have flat feet that spread out, so a narrow shoe doesn't fit on the ball, even though it's perfect on the heel.
Yes, but in the examples, the Belgraves, Marstons, and Somerville are all handgrades and the Westbourne are benchgrades. Meanwhile, the Belgraves (pictured) and Westbourne (mine) are the same color (lighter), whereas the Marstons (pictured) and Somerville (mine) are the same color (darker).
