well, I'm not "into it" it's more of a functional thing to boots more easy friendly through the Boston winter, and also on rainy days.
I just read through the trickers thread, I didn't realize you could get MTO from them for so cheap ($500 ish?). but my understanding is you can't get Horween shell from them (and if you could it would bring the price way up anyways)
I think an individual MTO is going to run you a lot more than $500.
The bulk MTOs (order of 6) are going for the stock price of about 355gbp for boot (minus VAT for US peoples).
So if you're good at herding cats and get 5 other people to agree to the style, Shoe Healer will do it for the standard price.
That's assuming a "standard" MTO using the normal options/styles in calf.
See the Tricker's MTO thead.
I seem to recall the price for an individual MTO is another 100-120GBP above that.
And shell is another 100-200GBP above that. Memory is fuzzy on this though.
Best to ask Richard (aka the Shoe Healer).
Allegedly the Tricker's Mogano cordovan is Horween.
He got his info from the factory dude who runs the ebay shop.
