Talked to Kathy this morning & no news. Kathy will send an email out either way as soon as she knows anything on the Thor boot.

Thanks for the update. I'm thinking 2015 is probably a good estimate for when we can expect it

Is it too late to get in an order?

I just found this forum!

Talked to Kathy today & submitted the list of interested parties in the "Thor" boot to her. Under her recommendation we closed the order down to the 35 people who have already expressed an interest by PM'ing me.

Kathy will need the names of the people who are interested. You can PM me your names & I will correlate them and send them to Kathy or she will email everyone & get them, either way will work. Once Kathy has all the info she will write up the order & send it to Alden. Alden will them confirm it or not (Kathy was inclined to think that it will get confirmed), then it would go into production once the cigar shell is available. ETA on this boot worst case is 1 year, Kathy was hoping for next spring.

Since Kathy is nice enough to take MTOs from us I ask that everyone who has expressed an interest is a serious buyer. Cost in my estimation would be $710, plus factor in the usual January Alden price increase of 5-8%, & it comes to $750-775, ballpark.

One thing to note, while this is an MTO Alden doesn't always follow instructions very well and have in the past changed specs on a make-up without Kathy knowing (case in point the whiskey Indy MTO). If this happens and say something is changed I hope that we all can be understanding and don't leave Kathy holding the bag on these boots. If we keep a good relationship with Kathy I could see 1-2 Alden MTOs a year coming to fruition.

Any questions or anything that I missed?

This boot is deserving of an MTO

"... they are the Black Pct boot from Moulded shoe on the Modified Last. I had them resoled by Nick at B. Nelson shoes to duplicate as close as possible the RRL Madison boot sold at the Grand Opening of the London RRL store...I think they came out pretty good..."

Any updates? I think it's been 3 months since the last checkin with Kathy. I doubt there's any news or we would have heard.
post #357 of 475
Kathy emailed me this morning with an update, nothing new. Alden hasn't confirmed the order yet. Kathy will let me know if anything changes & I will keep everyone posted as soon as I know anything more.
post #358 of 475
Thanks for the update. I'm going to try and forget about this, so that if Alden confirms this a year from now (with another 2 years for production), it will just be a nice surprise!

UPDATE ON THOR BOOT, KIND OF:

Talked to Kathy Flynn today & no update. Kathy said Alden has no word on when the needed Cigar would be available.

I realize that this MTO has dragged on & if anyone has changed their mind and wants to pull out please send me a PM. The main concern of Kathy was the size of the Thor order, thirty eight pair of cigar shell boots. That is a large MTO for Alden with cigar being in demand, other than that Kathy didn't think the order would be a problem getting confirmed by Alden for the design is tasteful one.

On another note, I proposed the idea of a non shell MTO in suede or CXL and Kathy was receptive to the idea. If anyone want to propose a CXL or suede shoe or boot MTO and we can get a consensus this idea could move forward. I look forward to see if there's an interest in a non shell MTO.

Again if you ever need to contact me in regards to the Thor boot to see where we are feel free. Kathy will contact me if there's any update, but I'll probably check in every six months with her.

I like the idea of a fall suede boot. Really any pattern (Indy, wingtip, captoe, etc), in snuff or even the dark brown and on commando soles. I'm very flexible on lasts and styles. Commando sole would be very ideal though given Alden doesn't do dainite (I wouldn't mind crepe but its too controversial for an MTO).
