Very nice, sir. Let me ask, with what clothes do you pair the Vintage Pine color? I wasn't sure about the versatility of the Pine Connaughts (which is why I went MTO a while back for the first pair), but broke down when AH One had a 10% off sale recently. When mine arrive, I may put a medium brown polish so they're not as yellow, we'll see.

I have been using them with different shades of blue, navy, charcole summery linen blend so the sports coat & suit are little more vibrant & mix of color hope that makes sense. But for casual you can go with any dark shade of slacks. I guess it depends upon what the occasion is.

In real life they are not that yellow more of a chestnut appearance to them you just have to play with clothing & mix & match or hit up the stylist worst came scenario.

I used to search for good ideas with regards to shoe racks and other shoe storage things. I spent awhile checking various different sites and it just seems at the point that I did that the best I could come up that worked for me were cedar shoe racks. Keep in mind I haven't looked for anything in probably the last couple of years so there just might be something better by now, but unless your willing or have some kind of shoe rack built into your closet there really aren't that many great products out there.

 

So basically I have four sets of two Cedar racks setup in one of my closets which accommodates 24 pairs of shoes and or boots. They are stacked in sets of two and four high which also set at the perfect height underneath my clothes. Then I have an aluminum shoe rack in another closet that accommodates about another 10 pairs of shoes. Unfortunately the cedar racks wouldn't work in this space or I would have them here as well.

 

Then I have shoes in their shoe boxes which stack better than shoes out of shoe boxes in both closets on the shelves above my clothes.

 

Thank goodness I reduced the number of shoes and boots I used to have or I would have run out of room awhile ago. As it is I'm starting to bulge at the seems and I'm sure my collection is probably timid by the standards of some here but at least I haven't got to the point of needing a shoe room, garage, or basement.

Man I am just leasing a condo temporary so custom shoe rack built is out of question but for future house yes will definitely do it. I am reaching close to 30+ brand new shoes it's crazy. I have bought container shoe box from container store & I am running out of room lol but stacking them up. I will give some Ashley's or other furniture store a try & see what I can get. It's just too many box stacked on top of,each other is getting pain in ass. And thank you for your advice & input it's greatly appreciated.

Specs:
Price: ~ 8800 SEK ex-vat or over? (kudu upcharge?)
Model: Walkton
Color: Rosewood Kudu / Deep Vintage Cherry
Last: MH71 or TG73
Sole: Oak Bark Sole
Lining: Rioja or Cherry

Interested parties:
@mw313 - (narrow width) (MH71 or TG73)
@TtownMD - (E width) (prefer TG73 but fine with MH71)
@Steel28
@Ironist
@JubeiSpiegel
@harki (E width) (prefer MH71 but fine with TG73)
@nickrut (E width on MH71) (F width on TG73)
@bsmw (E width on MH71 (prefers)) (F width on TG73)
@CFML (F width on MH71) + metal toe tips
@easilyamused (E width) (TG73 or MH71)

Anyone still have interest on this one, so we can then have two GMTOs for the Rosewood Kudu?


And just to clarify, the kudu would only be at the quarters (where the cherry is in these pictures above) so the cherry would be at the toe (so the medallion would look okay), the facing, and the heel.
In. Would be F width

Wow, it appears like more Kudu could be used here.

No Walkton for me, I'll save myself for a Woburn or Burnham reorder...

So did you decide against the Isham in Kudu as well or did you go ahead and order that one.

Can we iron out the details in regards of last and width? As you know the first six has to be consecutive before we can start adding widths. We have twelve people as of now for the Kudu Rosewood so we should be able do the Walkton GMTO. But I'm going to cap that make up to 10 participants. So please lets get the details in place so I can post the deposit link.

Specs
Price ex VAT : 8800 SEK (about $1100 USD)
Price inc VAT : 11000 SEK
Style: Walkton
Color: Rosewood Kudu / Vintage Cherry
Last: ?
Sole: Oak Bark Sole
Lining: Cherry

Lead time is about 5 months.
