Need Help / Advice on Promontory Point
Thanks. I was actually jonesing for a Wolverine 1K Krause a bit back, and I'm really excited by the knowledge that I can put in an MTO on the Promontory Point.
I'll call Allison tomorrow. Tonight, however, I need some help regarding size and makeup.
Sizing: the AE reviews all complain about the boot being small and narrow, but AE's (and RandomAdam's) description of the last make it sound roomy. What gives? I'm an 11E in most lasts (can't wear the skinnies--222 and 333) but want to wear a light-to-midweight boot sock with these. Per an earlier post of mine, I have sent or will soon send back Long Branches in 10.5EEE, 11E, and 11.5 D because none can accommodate the sock comfortably. (The 11E fits best and would be perfect with a dress sock). It doesn't appear that they make this last in a EE. Any advice?
Makeup: I like yours, NWTeal, but will pass on the suede back. What Chromexcel colors were available, and was there an up charge? I'd like a burgundy or chili (if possible) and a mini-lug sole. I'm up for recommendations on welting, stitching, etc.
I went with the golden brown chromexcel actually without the suede back. I did go for the snuff suede tongue however.
It all depends on how you want to wear it. I wanted a more all weather boot so I went with the CXL, split welt and dainite sole. It'll probably be a cool boot in natural CXL, too.
