I treat it as a shoe. Should be snug IMO.

Unless you must break your feet to wear them, they're not sleek enough...because pain is love, after all!!

Blake Rapid might be the way to go for a EB spectator MTO i'm planning. Do anyone have some pictures comparing Blake Rapid and hand welted soles?
And @Leaves
is there any pictures of the dark brown llama calf?

That's because the waist is rounded on both sides. They normally aren't on other EB models. If you check out Leffot's Button boots, the same rounded waist is seen--the combination of the sleeker Blake welt+rounded waist makes for a very sharp looking boot.

Yep. The stitches are hidden in the waist.

I'd go with a 270 degree handwelt from EB over a blake rapid any day, which is what I have on my spectators from this summer.  Some hopefully convincing images:

 

 

Very slim and sleek on the 804 last.

Thanks

Please email sales@skoaktiebolaget.se for questions regarding order status. We are quoting 4 months for any Carmina MTO/GMTO since a while back.

U-wing spectator in linen and (probably) dark brown llama calf (or green, which looks amazing, but not as versatile as brown). Something like this poorly photoshopped picture, but on the 363MOD last.

First and foremost. Very nice looking shoes. These are the spectators Skoab had in store this year, right? They were the shoes that got me the idea of making a spectator MTO.

Regarding blake/handwelt i think I will go with your recommendations. I don't think EB is not sleek enough, it was more that it would be interesting to test blake rapid (never owned a pair with that construction).

Hi there @ericgereghty.

I thought I'd let you know that I've got a spectator GMTO going, we already have our 3 guys but will be going ahead with this somewhere in Jan.

The makeup will be very similar to the pics posted by tdes81.

The color combination will be Vitello Giamaica (same as the above pictures) and Hidro Lino (instead of linen), in the 804 last. On leather soles.

If this might interest you, you can drop me a PM.  

Cheers. 

 

By the way @hmlarsson, your makeup looks pretty nice as well. Those U wings will look fairly unique.

Maybe it is just me but the side looks very "3D" . It looks like they stuck on the side with a cut-out window in the middle

 

Looks kind of odd like someone stuck another layer on to a captoe derby model to make it into this model.
