What do you mean by punched cap toe? you mean medallion on the toe box? I think Rain will work best without it to better display its chiseled toe, but it's up to you guys :D

I just meant the cleaner cap (the one you pictured has holes punched in the line, while this one doesn't if that makes sense). No medallion - basically the one I pictured in navy cordovan, rain last, brown dainite shoes, etc.

 

But.....seems I'm the only one interested at the moment.

Looks great!

I could be down for an oscar last as well. Any reason speed hooks are not preferred?

Also speedhooks rip your laces so bad. Ive gone through 2 sets of laces on my ruby bal boots. Makes it easy to put on but you cant wear them if you ripped your laces....

Does anyone know where to buy laces for bal boots?

Understand about the speed hooks - I can do without them.

 

So we basically have this:

 

 

 

 

 

Navy Shell Captoe Boot

No Speedhooks

Red Lining

Brown Rubber Dainite sole

Rain or Oscar Last (I can do either)

 

Any other details? 

And sorry about the crappy photoshop edit job, but this is the limits of my skills blush.gif

I think this might be a better representation of the navy shell (indoors at least smile.gif)

 

-Rain (pictured) or Oscar Last )TBD

-Clean Cap-Toe (no broguing)

- no speed hooks

-Red Lining

-Brown Rubber sole

 

If stevent is in we might have 5 already! (just got an email from another interested member) cheers.gif

All right everyone! We are looking for one last participants for the following two MTOs! Please send me a PM if you are interested!

 

1.Black Lizard Leather / Single Monkstrap (see pic below) / Rain Last

 

 

2. Navy Shell Cordovan / Cap toe Boots / Rain Last / Brown Rubber Sole / Red insole lining

Unlike the mock-up below, it will not feature speed hooks

Currently up for debate is whether we should keep the broguing on the toe cap (like the picture below) or do cleaner look stitches only

 

 

 

Also We are still looking for 3 more for the following two MTOs

 

1.Saddle Shell Cordovan / Quarter Brogue (Punched Cap-toes) / Rain Last / Brown Rubber sole (or half rubber half leather slim Tomir sole)

2. Dark Brown Suede / Tassel Loafer / Uetem Last

$795 is for the shell shoes (our Saddle shell Punched Toe / quarter brogue shoes in Rain) smile.gif

The shell boots retail for $875 which includes complimentary shipping and a free shoe care gift!
