They're from Rider Boots, and I worked with Ron to come up with the pattern. I haven't seen them IRL yet, so I'm interested to see whether they're really that tall. Looking forward to getting them. The turnaround was six months - three to work out the design, and three to get them made (including the Christmas break in Italy.)
Looks like a terrific outcome, and the turnaround time doesn't seem long at all.
Wow, how dramatically different! Good work and nice shoes!
