I was told that it fits exactly like the EG 202 last.

*checks thread*



£355 for MTO Balmoral boots? If he's making them on the equivalent of the 202 last I've finally found my pair.

If he'll make them, that is.

The maker's email address is cliff.robe​rts7 [at] ntlwor​ld [dot] com. His name is Cliff Roberts.

Here is his description of the last. I am waiting to hear back about whether he has all popular sizes.

As i tell everyone one who asks me in regards to sizing i work on my own lasts registered to me, they are similar to the 202 last for fit . My lasts are slightly wider in the toe area of the shoe for a more comfortable fit.
I only use the ref to the 202 to help people who have no way of trying on my shoes but have access to try on shoes made on the 202 last.

Any size.
If i do not have the size last required, I have a pair made at no cost to the buyer.
If i already have the pattern for the required size it is £290.00 per pair of shoes, if i have to have a pattern made up it is £30.00 extra.

Mr. Daniells is going to be a very busy man.

Amnon, is shipping to the US included in that price?

Does he do good year welt?

What is estimated time from start to finish?

What color leathers does he have access to?

Thanks

I ordered mine on January 28 and they will be finished on April 3rd. It could be that they took a bit longer since he cut an original pattern for me. What color leathers does he have access to? *Dunno. I told him what I wanted and he did it. Thanks

Wow! Great find and thanks for posting the process!

Are Balmoral boots his specialty or can he also do Jodphurs?

Damn, I wanted to order something from this guy later in the year (when I was sure of what I wanted) but I guess it's over now that sf have put them greedy paws on him. 2 yrs backlog here I come.
