I actually have the opposite problem. The footbed fits well in my terracotta lama boot and the shaft is way too loose for my liking and they are tightened so much that the leather is overlapping and I dont have slim legs at all

Thanks for all of the orders guys! We made the minimum on both the Loden Shell Greeley and the Loden Shell Longwing. Both of them are confirmed to go into work.

I think a hatchgrain wholecut would look best on Simpson.

Love both of these ideas. OK so I'll set this up today:

Loden Shell Jumper Boot
York Sole with flat welt and medium brown edge trim
Antique brass eyes & hooks

This is going to be killer!

Haha, nothing crazy about that! If that's crazy than I don't want to be sane.

Sure, which ones are you interested in? If there's some interest then we can re-run anything that we've done in the past.

Lizard Makeup

In terms of the Lizard Makeup, I've got two images that I can show you of Carmina samples...

From seeing the skins in person, I find cognac to be the most appealing shade. It's got a nice deep color and you can really see the texture. Both of the shoes above are in dark brown lizard.

I can get a scan of the swatch itself to show you guys. I'm actually having a hard time finding a non-insane pic of a shoe made up in this color of lizard. So I'll post up the most insane one possible:

I know that this is buckwild - but just note the leather color. It would make up into an absolutely killer double monk.

In my opinion, now that I see it, that loden jumper seems like it would be really hard to wear. I can really only envision wearing it with grey and white - definitely not blue, and only certain browns. Unless it's darker, I don't think I can justify it. Maybe this particular shade would work for me as a monk to be worn really casually in the summer?

Any chance of getting this same jumper make-up in cognac? (Essentially a re-stock, but with a more appropriate sole considering it's a military boot at its core.). If not, I'll go the way of the hatch grain or push for navy shell.

^ Notreknip, have you looked at the penny loafer shot on the deposit page for the jumper boot? It's darker, making for less of an "apple" color than Mike's mockups, and looks like it would be great for almost all greys and browns.
