About 5 PM today Swedish time in our brick and mortar store. Watch for it on Instagram, I'm sure our Swedish clients will post it there long before I'll have the chance to announce it here. smile.gif

I'm somewhat amazed that it hasn't leaked yet. I should've snooped more in the store... Ah well, I might try to stop by after work anyway.

@Leaves, i believe it was previously posted here or maybe in IG that a EB now has a uwing boot similar to Carmina? Would EB be able to make a derby version of this boot? Similar to the vass uwing boot. I think light colored shell works best with open lacing.

There is an upcharge for about 3000 SEK ex VAT for a new pattern, anything is possible.

Did you guys buy additional servers? Your web site is about to crash sometimes 5:00 PM today.

Leaves,

Just received my wonderful MTO in this last. Only problem is the instep is quite roomy. Toes and width are perfect and love the shape of the last otherwise. Any suggestions? A tongue pad? Sole insert? I'll likely take them to my local cobbler to get his opinion. It's not far off, just more generous than any other dress shoe I've tried.

Would the 804 last have a lower instep (or just generally less volume)? Have to say that the finishing on these EBs is superb.

Thanks!

A tongue pad will not affect the overall volume of the shoe in the same way as an insole or similar would have, so that might be the best option in your case. 

 

The 804 last has a slightly lower instep than the 74945 but is fairly similar in terms of ball width.

Thanks Gabriel. Below are some pics (including one showing how closely the laces meet). They really are wonderful shoes. Last is 74945 for reference.

Here is one in full-on sunlight.  This is pretty close to how they look in real life.  Less orange and more brown than it appears in many pics.

Thanks @Leaves.

Here's what I'm thinking. Shamelessly stolen from IG (@NAMOR's I believe)

Would anybody else interested in doing an EB GMTO in saddle shell?

Or maybe another U-wing GMTO by Carmina?

That would be great only Carmina doesn't do shell GMTOs anymore. Only single MTOs for shell.

On the other hand shell appears to be readily available from EB and only takes 3 to get going. Plus I can get a derby version :-)

You could always still do a single MTO...
