Update on the semi-brogue GMTO:
It seems almost everyone who's interested in the order wants to go with copper suede, I've therefore asked Pepe if they can source that colour.
I've also asked if we can have the option of choosing between two lasts in the same order (much like the museum austerity GMTO). The lasts would be Olfe and the new Park last!
Still waiting for reply, just thought I'd let you guys know biggrin.gif


Ps. In the same mail I asked if they could source olive suede for another MTO:

Would anyone be interested wink.gif I think this is the perfect summer shoe!

I would be all over that MTO, I have been looking for a suede tie loafer, but I do not fit well in the 2-3 Carminas I have tried on. I would be in on this in the Hiro last for sure.

The loafer needs to be on the Ron last. It would look a bit odd on the Hiro last.

Okay. Any help on the fit of the Ron last? I always default to the Hiro for the width and instep. As long as it will fit I would be in.

I take the same size in Hiro and Ron. The Ron fit the same initially, but stretched more over time, so it's slightly bigger than the Hiro.

Thank you, count me in for a pair.

 

For what its worth I am putting together a MTO for the complete opposite piece of footwear. I am looking to have a shearling lined boot done on the Hiro last in a dark brown pebble grain and dark/med brown calf. Essentially a boot similar to the EG Galway with a Medway sole. I have prices from Pepe already and I would need quite a few people to make this happen.

 

I was going to wait until the summer to put this up on SF so we could time it with the winter. But given the 18+" of snow we will get today I was in the mood. :brick:

I will be interested in. Do you have a mock up for medway sole? Is it like the ridgeway sole?

^ That boot sounds interesting. Keep me on your list - only check this thread rarely but may well bite.

@Jokanevad I would also be interested in this makeup. Please keep me in the loop! Olive suede sounds sweet! Are you thinking of a lace-tie like on the Carmina? That's personally what I would prefer.

My guess is €260 + €20 with shipping! I'm waiting for a reply from Pepe! I've added you to the list of people interested!

Griffon,

 

Exactly, it is very similar to the Ridgeway (see below). I find the traditional Dainite near deadly in snow. The Vibram is too chunky for the design of the boot, and the Commando leaves part of the leather sole exposed to the elements.

 

 

I am sure we can go with either sole as long as we stick with one. I will need 15 members to be on board to get this to run with this sole, but I am committed to it. I am just not a fan of the other options out there.

 

I plan to send it in July so that we have them delivered in September/October.

 

All those interested in details and pricing, please PM me and I will keep a list and provide updates. I am waiting on another question to be answered by Pepe, but I have the pricing and specs ready to roll.
