But we can take some time on it. We need to make sure that we all have some great fits before jumping on it. The pricing should be substantially less and we may even be able to get a GMTO if we spend the time on it too.

For now the Walkton should be the priority since we are only one person away from having 6 in the F width in the TG73 so we can just add the rest of us as the other widths.
This sounds like a plan biggrin.gif

I have no experience with MH71 but have two shoes on order on that last. But I would stick to these two last based upon what I just read from you above.

It has no connection to real antelope. It is a thick, waxy, oily leather that is damn near indestructible and great for hard-use footwear - but the "Kudu" aspect is just marketing.

Thanks for the information and clarification Roger.

If you still have more interest in other exotics I would email Skoak sales for the current list and swatch pics of what G&G might have available. At one point there was quite a few, and some were fairly reasonable as well.

Good. It will be the same with me because i don't currently have any on the MH71. They are all ones on order, but I think that the TG73 or Mh71 will be the best choices for such a boot. Plus the MH71 is so popular on SF so it must be for a reason. It is more of a happy medium between the extreme TG73 and the more rounded lasts.

good idea to ask them. i forgot with how there are so many other types too, like frog, ostrich, etc.

I have a pair of chestnut hatch grain Ishams on the MH-71 last. Not identical but close enough that I want to use the funds for a St. James instead. Can't post any pictures as the boots already sold and have shipped.

Yeah, sounds awefull close, pretty difficult to justify both.

At least you sold them fairly quickly.

Any pictures of the Ishams though?

Great looking shoe

I just ordered the one in Kudu, but now I'm thinking I should get a split toe is in calf as well as the only other one I have is in CC.
