That's all looking really good.
I think the GMTOs and these distinctive leathers are really going to be where it's at. Yes, the semi-exotics, but even more so things like Saffiano and that calf with different colors available, and a choice of colors of suede. There's a lot of value in being able to pick a leather and color that fits what we need, rather than looking at a perpetual stock selection and wondering if we need another brown/black/snuff suede/etc. shoe/boot.
I can't see why it wouldn't be as successful as the sneakers.
And I'll just throw this out there, though it's probably for much later in the development of this line (if ever at all), but I love those boots with a canvas shaft and a leather lower half. That could be awesome with suede or kangaroo or that beautiful calf skin as the leather combo.
Hope the fit on these works as well for me as the Calgary bluchers.
@FrankCowperwood thank you!
Great minds think alike on this - I've already got a lace-up boot in development with an inset shaft. That way it's easy to create a two-tone style with suede/canvas/whatever on the top and something else on the bottom. Really fun for GMTO's especially. My initial sample was okay but it needs another round of pattern work. I think that they'll nail it the second time around and I can show you guys.
I can also tell you guys that I'm working on a real exotic MTO program with these. The factory can deliver a single pair in 12-16 weeks, but it has to be a hand-cut exotic leather. So lizard, ostrich, crocodile, alligator, etc. I'll run a gator, croc, and lizard sample in the Jodhpur to have pics. They're a huge range of leathers to choose from too. Not everyone's thing, but I think that it's a rad project for offer for guys who are into it. And they do BEAUTIFUL work with exotics.
