So I pulled the trigger on getting a pair of MTO shoes. Primarily because I wanted cordovan and didn't like any of the color/last combinations.
We will see how long it takes to come in. I'll post pictures to add to the shoe porn when I can.
Style: 101332 Whole Cut
Upper: Shell cordovan -- Light Brown/Cuero
Lining: Light brown - Calf
Sole -- Double Leather
Sole Finishing -- Planta Paloma -- Light brown, Dark Brown
Edge Finishing -- Match the upper
Size: 8UK -- I'm a 9D in AE Lasts 5 and 7 -- I'll trust Pepe and hope they will fit.
Lets hope that I don't have any customs/duty problems.
Be very interested to see how well they execute a wholecut in shell. I avoided their shell so far due to the ugly ass inner seam in the 4th picture of model 101426
