They are. Congrats. If only that last worked for me. Haven't tried but heard high instep and looks like a wide ball area and roomy toe box, too. How would you compare them to Forest, Oscar or 202?

Why do those look so much better than my C&J shell boots that use the same Horween? :facepalm:

Did you snag the 9?

Thanks guys! I preordered them when Skoak launched them back when they did. The shell feels supple but rigid at the same time. The fit on these boots is incredible. Usually I have issues with the my foot slipping around in the boot or the heel not catching on my heel. These feel great in that regard.

The toe box is slightly wider which is what I wanted in a boot and I tried them with thick socks last night and it felt a hair snug but pretty damn good. I probably won't wear them for a week or so but I highly recommend them if anyone is looking and yea these are the 9 but I didnt take from their live stock. This was reserved for me a while ago

Cheers to the Skoak team for another fabulous boot.

My MTO is here! Claret museum. I wanted a simple captoe with a sleek round toe. Leaves recommended Style 3845 with the punching removed on the 74945 last. The toe seems a bit more sleek than Vass F or GG06. I think I'll take a Topdown group pic for comparison. The sides of the toe cap are slightly chiseled. Much Less so than pics I've seen of the 946 I think. The fit is generous all around. Highish instep. Plenty of toe room. At first, the leather hit my ankles a bit, but that seems to be settling with wear.

Indoors, the museum is subtle and is a dark wine color. In the sun, the mottling is more visible and appears just a tad lighter.

Dude, the last and leather are top notch. I should unsubscribe from Skoak thread.

Shall we start organizing the GMTO, now?

post #11909 of 23706

There won't be any GMTO as they only carry seconds. Slightly disappointed.
