Hey guys!

A few members asked to place their Greeley, PTB, and Python orders tomorrow, so I'm going to keep them up an additional day. I'll take them down tomorrow (Monday) at midnight, so that I can send the final cuttings to Carmina afterwards and they'll receive it the start of their working day on Tuesday.

Huge thanks to everyone who ordered so far! We hit the minimum on every style except the Greeley in snuff suede - so I deactivated that variant. All of the other Greeleys (Burg Shell, Navy Shell, black calf, tan calf), the Cognac PTB, and the Python captoe will be put into work.

Here's the link to all of the styles:

And once I place this order, I'll get back to you guys on the new ideas going around. There's some great stuff! I'm crazy excited about the purple boots, and it would be rad to do some special summer styles. I've got some reference pics to post on Tuesday of some far-out things.

Exciting to see whats to come! Mike you have always had some amazing make ups. Cant wait to hear/see what you got coming! Loafers/boots!

I'm interested in the Greeley boot and want to confirm my size. I wear a UK9D in Edward Green and a UK8.5E in the Crockett & Jones 337 last. Would I take a UK8.5?

Re: Greeley-

I'm stuck deciding between burgundy and navy (can only do one). Thoughts guys? I'm thinking burgundy is probably more versatile, but I love navy shell. Just having a hard time trying to figure out what I'd wear with them.

I put my money down today for burgundy. I love the idea of navy but I think I'll get a lot more mileage out of the burgundy.

Agree with your thought that burgundy is almost certainly more versatile, but then there are/will be other burgundy shell boots out there, possibly even austerity brogued. Navy seems less likely to come up again. Therefore my two cents is, choose navy.

Hmm, good question on that. The C&J 337 looks like it would speak decently well to the Forest last, so I'm leaning towards an 8.5UK.

What Edward Green last are you wearing a 9UK in? Is it a slimmer shape? The Forest is a very true medium fit.

I wear a UK9D in the 888 and 82 lasts. It's on the narrow side of medium. I have one RLPL pair on the wider 89 last, which I believe is a UK8.5E. I also wear a 9.5 in Sutor Mantellassi, which feels like a true medium fit.

Oh, and I found the Grape Calfskin shoe pic. This is so freaking boss. It's the same weight and hand as the midnight calf, which is absolutely butter soft:



It's a little hard to tell the exact coloring due to the lighting, but it's a very cool true dark grape tone. It's purple in the same way that Midnight calf is navy.

 

The chukka in snuff suede on the simpson last would be awesome.  Add a york sole or double leather and I would def do that for the spring. 

 


The grape calf is awesome as well.  I think on the simpson or alcudia last with a simple captoe (no brogueing) and just letting the color shine would really look nice.

That was considerably cheaper than buying from Leffot.

 

Shoe Healer does.
