As I expected it's a no go on the #4 WT boot. Just my opinion here, but I believe that #4 is scarce and is only given out occasionlly as a reward to it's best retailers from time to time. Just my opinion.
As for the Thor boot Kathy will know by mid September at the latest if the Thor gets the green light. Kathy has to run the make-up through her salesperson first & then the factory. It could be a little sooner, but I doubt it. If the boot gets the green light Kathy would expected that they would be ready for next spring or early summer.
It's up to us now if we want to stay the course with Kathy or approach another Alden retailer. My suggestion is to sit tight with Kathy & see how this develops for I firmly believe that's Kathy is our best bet for getting the Thor boot produced in a timely fashion.
