i really like this. pricing and details for last and sole for the boot?

Nice...I look forward to checking them out. If others are interested, it would be awesome if we could modify that boot a touch and get rid of the perforations on the captoe and go with chestnut calf with complementary scothgrain calf upper and antique brass eyelets and dainite sole. I think that would be a pretty awesome winter boot that can be dressed up and down pretty easily. Maybe on a slimmer last.

Whew, okay. I admit that I'm still lusting after Ruby, but I doubt I'd be able to get the money on hand for another shell boot right now. My vote goes to checking for interest on a captoe rerun for now.

Pricing would probably be around $895 (Edit: Just went back and saw that the last shell boots were $950), which (I think) is what the last shell bal boot went for. If it's offered in wide, it'll be Forest last. No mention of choice in sole yet (as that's a photoshop mockup, and not the actual boot, in case you didn't catch that).

But we can do anything with the Ruby shell. I know that a few guys wanted to get in on the Perf Captoe that we already ran. If you're interested in that, then I can open up another round of it and take 8 more orders for that exact style. All options are on the table!

I'm going to toss out my favorite ideas again. I'd like either

(1) austerity brogue bal shoes in ruby shell, in a fairly sleek profile, or
(2) chukka boots with Dainite soles in ruby shell (exact style TBD), on a chunky last, for casual wear. I'm not too particular about the exact decoration of the chukka boots, though I would prefer some sort of embellishment on the toes, e.g. wingtips, austerity brogues, floating medallion, cap toe, etc.

Ruby shell is unique and IMO would work best in a simple style. I find that I wear my RL MacCallum chukka boots all the time, but I want another pair of chukkas to rotate with them on multiple rainy days.

It's going to be on the Forest last. I've got three guys interested already, so I'll definitely get this online tomorrow. I think that we can do this for $925 with the shoe trees.

Also, for European customers, it may be possible to "drop ship" you the boots from Carmina directly. I'm looking into that now, but since they have the ability to send individual shipments, I don't see why we can't do this. This will save some time, and hopefully give you less tax exposure. Let's just assume that we can do that for this order and everything going forward after that.

Oh sorry, I had a complete brainfart on the Galway.

Yes, we can absolutely make a captoe blucher boot like that. Carmina won't have that angled pattern at the bottom, but the rest is easy to do. I actually have a "jumper" boot that just arrived which is pretty close to that allover shape. Love that combo suggestion! The only issue is that a true Winter delivery at this point is tough - we're probably looking at the delivery coming in late Jan / early Feb, so right at the end of the season.

One other consideration....



Saddle shell on top, Burg Shell on the Bottom

instead of saddle on top, do it with suede or some textured leather like pebble grain.

is the ruby more red than the burg?

Yes, but Carmina finishes it darker than most, so it's like a lighter, more saturated burgundy in real life. Still very easy to wear - it won't be a bright red shoe.

Gorgeous with that. Great match to tan and indigo denim as well.
