Payment sent on Miller. For those on the fence, the "sample" model features a lighter cognac, while the planned model will have drown she'll. I think it'll make for a better looking boot. Cheers

Bloody stunning boot, especially in the cognac cordovan as photographed.

 

I have always had bad luck with suede though, never seems to last the distance with me.

 

Damm damm damm!

 

I need some time to talk myself into this opportunity.

I was on the fence with this boot until I realized what I was actually getting:

AS handgrade model at an "exclusive" price
Rare brown shell cordovan at a calfskin price
A unique yet very wearable boot unlike anything I own

For comparisons sake, Leffot is selling their Miller calfskin boot for over $1,200

Can't wait for Autumn

Please do note that this is NOT TRUE. NOT TRUE. NOT TRUE.


You are getting a hand-grade model LOOK but with the construction quality of an exclusive grade.


The AS MTO program offered by AFPOS is an awesome value, but don't deceive yourself with the notion of handgrade quality at exclusive grade price.

You are correct. In my over zealous enthusiasm for this makeup, I made a couple generalizations. Thanks for clarifying.

Just get the boot already! happy.gif

What do you guys think of this makeup by G&G (wigmore)? It seems that a brown shell/brown pebble shaft might be an appealing alternative to shell/suede. Please comment if you'd be interested in this. I'm indifferent to the shape of the horizontal line (flat or curved as seen above)

perhaps AFPOS can comment if such a MTO is even possible. thanks

I think this would be a good alternative - if you are keen to change the mto to cognac shell/grain calf let me know and we can change the specification on the mto page.

thanks for the response. I like both options (shell/suede and shell/pebble) but it seems the latter might entice some of these guys who are on the fence to commit to the shell/pebble boot. You know who you are.... cheers.gif

I don't want to be the cause of any changes / alterations, but if there was a choice between suede or pebble grain then :-

 

1- the suede certainly looks better in my opinion, especially if the boot is to be used in environments where there is a loads of unnatural lighting, like an evening cocktail at some 5 star venue in an hotel or theater or Opera hall but

2- the pin grain will look fantastic as well and it is, in my personal view, a little more practical in that is easier to maintain.

 

Some people manage to keep suede looking fantastic for years, and I don't know how they do it, but I am not one of them.

 

If this boot is offered in the two tone leathers, like the G&G shown above, I would be all in, "boots and all" as they say down south.

 

I would recommend that you wait for further opinion before a decision because I do not want to be the cause of a change if it should eventuate that the suede option is the more popular choice.

 

I am happy to make a refundable deposit to AFPoS to confirm my interest but without demanding a change of style prior to testing the general opinion of everyone else.

 

If popular opinion prefers the suede, I can make some arrangement with AFPoS I am sure.

Oh, you used my Wigmore weakness. I would definitely be interested in a shell/pebble combination. What are your thoughts on a darker pebble to provide some contrast (i.e., AS, Hannover):

I assume the shell is a pretty dark brown so it might make a nice combination.

Personally I would REALLY prefer the curve (I already have 2 bal boots that have the flat line). Julian, just want to confirm this option can be used?

I never have tried shell shoes in my life and I think a boot would be the best way to pop my shell cherry
