I think these are terrific. I don't see them anywhere on the site, though.
Generally a pre-order payment secures you a pair in your size from their stock order, so there are usually extra pairs unless their entire stock order was pre-sold.
Really nice boots.
Yeah - 9 months? Not good. But hey, the boots look pretty damned sweet.
I don't know about shell availability, especially in Vintage Rioja. If it's not ungodly expensive, I would be interested. However, I don't know that my wallet could take the hit anyway, given that just calf Burnhams are already pricey compared to other GG because they are whole cut.
