That will look super tough. I think that it's definitely doable.

The most sleek last is the 2030, but the 2040 apparently has the same look, but is slightly more forgiving. It would be SF x Viberg though. No W+H here (though those guys are cool).

Definitely doable. There would nearly certainly be an upcharge. We could offer it, and see if there is enough interest to make it a feasible project.

I would love to get an MTO of basically that design but in an oxford. I had talked to Morgan, but I think he said that there are no grey roughouts anymore. Bummer?
Yeah, they just need a Vibram sole there. If you guys are interested, we can definitely do a very similar boot in the MTO program. I personally think that the oxford would be too unbalanced - that double leather midsole + a Vibram sole needs a substantial upper to balance it out - but your mileage may vary.
That was the only hide in that color, but Guy has told me that they are getting in a lot of new stuff, so... there are choices. That picture actually is more like the latigo grey. It's really hard to photograph colors, and that picture is just a little off, from my recollection of the swatches. irl, that leather is more of a "dove" grey, like the "dust" color that DRKSHDW uses. So, latigo grey roughout is a good possibility if the color shown is exactly what you want. If not, maybe a Guidi leather.
