eyelets vs speedhooks is not a big deal, she would accept them and they would sell out

I like the military last a lot. Is it a general option?
And is it the same as the 379x last?
Also on the pair that you recently bought, it looks very good. Are you keeping the sole that the previous owner had put on them?
I guess for the group MTO here it's out of the question, right?

I've only seen the Military last offered in Japan and Europe. I think these look even more blunt because of the extra mass of the real cap toe set against the relatively fine outline of the sole.
I have seen the 379x referred to as Alden's Military last, but I can't confirm that it's the same. I'm curious about that too. Anyone?
I will keep the sole, at least for a while, as the weather is generally bad where I live. When it's time to resole, I'll get Commando soles put on.
CTYGGG is our contact/liaison with Kathy. The list was presumably closed with 35 people on the list. It's hopefully close to the time when we should hear back from Kathy whether Alden has approved this makeup. CTYGGG, do you have an update from Kathy on status and whether she needs anything else from us?
If you like this MTO, you should keep an eye on this thread and if hopefully this Thor boot is approved, the DC store may order extras that you could take advantage of.
