A pointed last on a tall shafted boot like that looks feminine IMHO. I prefer the Robert lasted bal boot.

I would absolutely love a MTO bal boot on the rain last. Perhaps a suede and calf combo.

I have never really understood what this means.  It looks like a woman's boot?  I don't see it.  Happy to disagree.  EG and GG have pointed lasts on tall shafted bal boots and I don't see it there either.

Man, if only there were a MTO open for this right now. We could even make the shaft in alligator... :satisfied:

I need a F width even in G&G, Hmmm...so I guess I will not successfully group 5 person for this vintage cherry St. James 2.

 

As alternative I might go for the Enzo Bonafe Burgundy Beauty directly later this year

WELL…in theory there's already us three at the moment so we just need three more. For me the most important aspects would be a suede/calf combo bal boot on the rain last, closed lacing with speed hooks. I'm open to burgundy, ruby, or mid-brown. Details such as single/double soles, lining, etc I am completely open to :)

 

Thoughts? Perhaps we can pose this idea in the Carmina section?

Just keep in mind Leaves' response (below) to the question of whether bal boots were now done on Rain last.  Though why they would not do more runs, I do not understand:

So Carmina is now making bal boots on the Rain last, in addition to the Robert and Forest lasts??


No, this is just for this limited run. As far as I know.

I'm not actually interested in another boot; I was just pointing out that the alligator bal boot that's already up for a MTO is on Rain. And, like Leaves said, may be one of few if any other Rain bal boots.

Thanks all. I figured it was at least worth a shot.

Just added myself to the Dover Mahogany GMTO. Hopefully not too late.

Nice choice! I think Skoak's pre-orders stay open for while. It's only been a couple weeks.
