Any plans to start stocking a version of the u-wing boot? It's an absolute panty-dropper.
I know you guys developed the shoe version of that and I have seen more than a few MTOs on it as well. Gentlemen's Footwear recently did a GMTO with 12+ participants (which I sadly missed out on) so there seems to be clear demand for it. I am going to get that boot eventually whether I have to do a MTO, GMTO, or if you will eventually stock it I may just try to practice patience and holdout for that. Most likely I will fail at waiting...but I will try!
I'd love to arrange a GMTO for it, I'm open to suggestions.
It looks killer in Shell (but that's not an option as you all know, given the shortage). I saw GF did it in Burgundy Museum Calf. We were the ones who pushed for Carmina to bring in Museum Calf and I did the first prototype in Museum Calf. I made up the style 80267 for myself in Burgundy Museum Calf, but I was not happy how it turned out, because the color was almost black. That's why we decided to stock it in Brown Museum Calf instead, for our store, and this has been one of our best sellers this seasons. They may have corrected this very dark Burgundy MC in later batches though, I don't know. As for the style itself, it's an evolution of our U-wing Oxford. We wanted it to be a derby boot, as suggested by a SF member, but Carmina decided it would look better as an Oxford boot and I’m happy it turned out so amazing. So it’s not exactly our style although it’s heavily influenced by our Uwing Oxford. The biggest credit goes to "don José", Mr. Albaladejo himself, who designed the Uwing Oxford and our extended Adelaide style from just a few rough sketches I made in the factory. That man is a genius.
