looks very nice. when did you place the order?
post #2223 of 21786
Thanks!

I placed it in June so about 6 months which was what I had expected since i've heard that the mto waiting time has gone up somewhat.. I read somewhere on SF that someone waited more than 7 months

The one thing that I noticed which concerned me, and hopefully ya'll can help, was that it appeared there is a very thin piece of leather over the fore of the shoe, and when inspecting them last night, I noticed a small gap at the toe between it and the rest of the sole.

Ahh, Very good information regarding how this last fits your particular foot and build. I have pretty short and somewhat narrow feet as well. And this is part of why I like longer lasted shoes.

Can you show a pic of that loose piece of leather?
