Yea I'm open to either but prefer plain leather for either the walkton (single leather) or Isham (double leather). I'm okay with the toe plates if needed but would prefer not for the added cost and potential damage to my floors in my house.

Isham Proposed GMTO

It appears as we have enough people (6) in the same width as long as everybody is willing to go with a Double leather sole. If we wish to move forward with a Dainite sole we will possibly need one more person and a few of the odd size people may drop out.

 

Specs:
Price: ~ 8800 SEK ex-vat or over? (kudu upcharge?)
Model: Isham

Color: Rosewood Kudu
Last: MH71
Sole: Double Leather Oak Bark Sole or Double Dainite still to be determined (Only one @daizawaguy against Dainite)
 

@justinkapur Depends on stifness of material Dainite

@harki E Dainite\Double Leather

@dddrees E Dainite

@mw313 narrow Double Leather

@grc1 E Dainite

@whyriver E Dainite

@daizawaguy E Double Leather

@JubeiSpiegel Double Leather

@bumblebee E Double Leather > Dainite
@nikogaF Double Leather

Sorry to disrupt the kudu craziness, but does anyone know when the bonafe chukka gmto from skoak closes?  the order page says Sept. 3, but extended by request.

A while back everyone seems quite excited by the Hove, recently it seems most of the love is for Isham. They look quite similar to me.

 

Do I miss something or is there any practical reason why the Hove falling out of everyone favour?

I find the Isham more casual than the Hove and this is a casual leather to me

For me I think it's the other way around. Hove is more casual, but I prefer the extra eyelet of the Isham. That's enough to make me prefer it.

This is the way I see it as well.

Interesting, now thinking about this, I am actually with @rydenfan on this. Hove is one of the dresiest shoes I have seen, especially when the 3 eyelets version someone did a while ago

I'd be concerned if you knew anything at all about shoes. LOL

I've always seen it the other way.

I like both the Isham and the Hove but also feel that the Isham suits the causal Kudu leather better. I would have been fine with either.

post #16858 of 23706

I think Isham is just better in general. lol

so do I. I love the Isham and compare it to the EG Dover. (no one try to go after me for saying that!)

 

and are you going to get in on either the Isham or the Walkton GMTO?
