I think we're at a point where we can finalize at least two boot designs. Based on initial feedback, it looks like the most popular boots are a whiskey Indy boot on the Trubalance last with a commando sole, and a Ravello cap toe boot on the Barrie last with a double leather sole. For the Indy boot, there's still a question of hooks vs. full eyelets and machine vs. hand stitching. For the cap toe boot, there's a leaning toward full eyelets.
If you are on the list for either of these boots and are OK with the last and sole choices, please PM me regarding your preference for the other details (hooks/no hooks, stitching, welts, etc.). I will use those PM responses to put together the final designs.
If you are not OK with the last and sole choices, please let me know so I can remove you from the interest list.
There has been talk of a third design, and a few have shown interest in a cigar boot, but there has not been consensus on general style and other details. My personal preference is for a jumper boot in cigar, but I'd also be interested in a cigar wing tip boot. The latter seems like a good way to round out the trio, as we have an Indy and a cap toe already. Thoughts?
