I would be on board, with a rubber sole. They could be rain boots.

Shell MTO rainboots? I guess that would remove any leverage I have for complaining about my wife spending $200 on Hunter rubber rain boots...

Unfortunately your leverage would be reversed. As a leather worker I have come to appreciate shell for its properties, particularly the waterproof nature of the hide. Besides the patina will grow much faster with grit, grime, rain and wear. Check out some old pairs of Royal Imperials, they look sublime next to new shell in my opinion. 

 

Expensive yes, but they are meant to be worn, just like rain boots.

My boots in the wild. I see some small creases, along the lines of my Carmina oxfords.

None of my other shoes have this, even brogues I've owned for several years and am using as beaters now.

I'm done with them, and I might as well post these pics all over instagram, to expose their deceitful business practices. 
 
You how the Chinese have a penchant for destroying automobiles they're unhappy about in front of the dealership? I propose a ritual burning of the austerity boots in Mallorca nest.gif

waaaoooow! what a piece o' shit. boots on the other hand look fine

Monkeyface, im surprised at your comment where you say the shoes fit fine. How do you manage to fill out the toe with those 5 little turds you call toes?

Haha, my toes are anything but little, wish they were a little smaller.

Meh, they were to be winter boots anyway. On that note, these were crazy warm today! (OK I had wool socks on) think they'll be good for the cold stuff!

Does anyone have real life pics of the Ben last? I know semi square toes aren't in, but I think it might look good for a more casual blucher.

^I tried to find a flamethrower gif here.

Jodhpur MTO as discussed earlier.

 

Decided:

Navy blue calf

Double leather sole

 

Options:

New Rey or the new chiseled toe last (note that chiseled toe takes longer - how long? No one knows. Might be +some months)

Seam on vamp or not?

 

All parties interested PM me.

 

Inside lining, welt and welt color TBD after we know we get enough people for the MTO per se.

Question for the Euro guys (preferably Norwegians): Did you get hit with customs/taxes on the shoes? I.e, did Meermin mark down the price, or did they quote the full price? I know a lot of smaller MTM shops have a tendency to declare package with lower prices before shipping...send me a PM if you don't want to answer it here for all to see.
