I don't think she gives a flying fuck if people use it to request for a shoe and not a dinner date.

No kidding.  They are in the business of selling shoes, after all.  It's not like her home phone number was requested or posted.

 

Anyway, I received a prompt response from Betty.  If she objected to my inquiry about a shoe, she was gracious enough not to let it show.  Now I just have to decide between three competing pairs.

It's the suede boot that is a year old. The jumper boot was delivered in March so I wore them maybe five times before I put them away for spring and summer.

I'm happy with how they look after those wears, looks new smile.gif

Thank you sir.

 

Zippy got it right, they are a Rider Co boot. If you look hard enough you might get lucky depending on your size, I think there are very few remaining out there.

 

 

I purchased mine from J Gilbert.

Anyone who's been hemming-and-hawing, now is your last chance. We already have a quorum of participants. In two or three days the list will be closed off and the boots ordered.

 

Three months (approx.) to delivery. 30% discount off the individual MTO price brings these beauties in at 4480SEK (ex VAT), 50% deposit up front via Paypal, shoe trees 640SEK (ex VAT), shipping extra.

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

 

 

 

Here's a very different boot (model, last, sole all quite different) which I'm posting simply to demonstrate the "dark Cognac" colour we are specifying for this MTO.

 

 

You can see it's slightly darker than the shell colour in the first photo. Horween do make two shades of Cognac and we are specifying the darker shade.

 

Again to demonstrate colour variation, here's a still darker "Cognac" shell cordovan boot from Carmina, this time for Epaulet. Possibly also a model 80184 like ours, but with a double leather sole instead of our Dainite. I suspect it's also on a different last.

 

 

PM me or Leaves if you want in. Remember, the order closes off in three days.

I think Namor said Hmmmmmm.

 

I sure hope he doesn't regret missing out on these like he did the AS Cherry Moores.eek.gif

The boots look good. I ordered a similar pair from AS, but w/o the heel counter and a couple inches taller (sorry the images are so huge):

I've seen these before, possibly your boots posted elsewhere.

 

Gorgeous looking boots.

Could you post a picture? I've been looking for a Carmina captoe adelaide but never found one..

Epic boot. Handgrade or exclusive?

Is the shoe tree included with the price of 4460 sek? If not, will there an option of no shoe tree?

e, what last are those on?
post #5008 of 8853
Would love to see some updated pics of those boots
post #5009 of 8853
Thanks guys. Junior, they're handgrades. Needed to go handgrade to have them create a new pattern or adjust an existing one.

DpprDr, I think they're on the 19, the almond shaped one. I got some loafers made w/ the same last. Posted both before.

Namor, I'll take some pics. I think I've had them less than a year, but I wear them on the motorcycle, so they've taken some abuse.

No, the shoe trees are separate and optional. I myself am not ordering shoe trees as I want my boots to look worn-in. I'm going to be wearing them hard.

 

Also please note the boot price is 4480SEK (ex VAT), not 4460.

Yep. I am so going to be riding in my jumper boots. On this:
