I did an MTO snuff suede Mora with Dainite sole. I like it!

Those mora's are perfection. Exactly the shoe I've been looking for!

I might have to do an MTO! Too bad the price just jumped up again :/

Received my Bourbon Mora 2.0 from the sale last week.  At first glance, I thought they were okay with the exception of some puffing up of the leather where the elastic is sewn into the right shoe.  I was willing to overlook this, but then I saw a very distinct crease in the leather at the top of the shoe.  It's pretty pronounced on the left shoe, not as much on the right one.  Don't think I could overlook this, so I guess I'm calling the store tomorrow.  Hope they have my size still because this 108 last fits me perfectly.

I'd like to buy a pair of black casual boots and have been looking at the Wolverine 1000 mile boots. I understand that these are actually made by AE.

Does AE make a similarly styled boot under their own name?

Really hope these work out as they pretty much hit the main three suedes I would need...until I decide to add Olive... 

Fashion question for those with an eye for these things...The Spiaggia has that orange sole and the Strandmok has the white with that green band...do you take these colors into consideration at all when pairing the shoes with pants/shirts etc?  Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





Nah.

The sole of the Spiaggia is more pink than orange

Missed those before. They look great!

I think I'd go V-Tread instead of Dainite, but otherwise might shamelessly copy.

How'd you size compared to 5- or 1-Last?

I'm pretty sure only the 725 and 744 Ltd were made by AE. I think the Original 1K is made by Wolverine.

The Promontory Point was fairly similar in last and shape, from what I understand.

I took the same size as I do for the 5 & 1 lasts. To me it fits fairly similar to the 5 last, with the difference being that the 8 last has a slightly narrower feeling heel.

I might be wrong, but these don't look like they are made by AE. I think AE only made the Krause, 721LTD and 744LTD. The boots on the picture have a 270-degree welt--something AE doesn't make.

AE has a similar boot called Promontory Point that has been discontinued. Select sizes are available online but if yours is sold out, you can try to search them here

I was lucky enough to stumble across a pair of rejected MTO Promontory Point from someone here on SF you guys all know...and I absolutely love my first pie of shells!!

Noticed a few QC issues with the pinking around the wings on both shoes, but maybe I'm being too picky. Great looking shoe though. I most likely will keep.

(right shoe some of the pinking isn't lying flat, left shoe the arches on the wings are not symmetrically the same).

The more I see, the more I like it ... it's my favorite color ... congratulations ...

And for shits and giggles, here are the original botched ones, that Bl@ster was so gracious to pass on my way - at his cost.

Loved that Promontory Point makeup from the first time I saw Blasters post it. Was hoping Blaster was my size so I could snag the rejects too.

 

Congrats guys!
