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

I prefer all eyelet but would still gladly take them if speedhooks came. But crepe sole, that would be a problem, though I highly doubt that would happen.

The Military last is not the same as the Modified last. They feel like the Barrie, just with more room at the toe, and are not as roomy overall as the Modified.

Interesting, thanks.

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?

I pinged Che, who works with Kathy, to get a status since we hadn't heard anything for awhile.  He says the order has been submitted to Alden and we are now just waiting for a production date.  There is still the possibility that Alden could reject this makeup.  Sure hope not.

No, Kathy will contact us after Alden confirms the order, if of course this happens. Sit tight & wait is the name of the game for an Alden MTO.

If there is an opening or a cancellation from this order keep me informed as I would want to get in on the Thor....

post #342 of 477
Can't wait for Thor boot. Fingers crossed.
post #343 of 477
I will call Kathy on Monday December 3rd for an update and see where we stand.

Wish I found this thread earlier on...You guys decided on a great looking boot; best luck with a smooth transaction on all parts. I will keep my eye out for the next MTO or other opportunity to own a truly unique Alden build.

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.
