I think a natural cxl would be a great option. What sole were you thinking? Eyelets or blind eyelets?

I'll be more interested in derby or oxford than chukka or boots. I'll wait for the specs.
I have these, comfortable but heavy shoes. One of my favorites. I don't recall the last or details, but I like the roomy toe in comparison to the unconstructed service boots
The thing about natural CXL is that it quickly turns brown. I'd love to see some other leather in the 2045 last.
Definitely more Country Derby Boots coming this year. We invested a ton of research and development into that pattern and we're really happy with how it turned out. One of our original samples was in calf and it looked great, so i'm sure we'll offer something like that at some point.
Yeah, both the chukka and the service boot are on the 2030.
That's more of an issue with the 110 last rather than the chukka itself. The 110 is a workboot last and is meant to accommodate most foot shapes plus a liner/heavy sock/insole/etc. Because of this it doesn't really have any shape through the waist and the heel, so with a lower boot like a chukka, it's easy to get some heel slip. We have a new last that is almost ready to go that should essentially replace the 110 except in cases where people truly need the extra room all around.
