We're going with a single Dainite sole for the chocolate suede chelsea.

I am considering jumping aboard the dark brown suede MTO. I have a strong preference towards having a back pull tab. Too difficult otherwise.

Ideally, I would prefer the back pull tab to be set lower so that the top of the pull tab was equal to the top of the boot.

I'm in on the dark brown

I'm in for brown with pull tab.

A pull tab would be a huge plus, although I would Iike it to be placed as the tabs normally are on chelseas (on top of the shaft).

EDIT: I googled Carmina chelseas and it seems like that a pull tab is possible. SkoAB's chelseas had pull tabs, unlike Unipair's boots.

I wouldn't mind a pulltub either, since it's a casual boot

They certainly add some flavor, especially if it contrasts. Not sure what tab color would work for the grey suede / navy elastic Chelsea. Maybe navy?

It's not on the MTO, though.

So, final specs for dark brown chelsea.

 

Rain last

Dark brown (chocolate) suede

Flat welt

Single danite sole

Pull tab at top of shaft at rear of boot (believe this is standard, no pull tab needs specifying)

 

 

Essentially the above, but in dark brown suede.

I am sweating in anticipation for those boots.

In preparation for fall and winter, anyone interested in a grain chukka on dainite? Thinking:

3 eyelet chukka on Rain or Detroit

In the handfinished grain leather like on skoak's recent saddle shoe:

I like this color, but we should be able to specify any variation since its handfinished.

Any takers? Getting this in now would get them here in early/mid fall

That pebble grain chukka would be pretty awesome.

Yes! looks like the dark brown suede chelsea in Rain last is almost good to go!

@Baked Potato @PartagasIV @MGD83 @justinkapur @joiji - 5 confirmed and waiting to hear back from 2 more members!

 

 

 

Also Grey Suede Chelsea MTO is still underway and looking for few more participants!

 

- Chelsea Boots in Grey Suede (Grey suede is bit darker and had blueish tint to it like picture below)

 

 

- Soller last (same as the last for the picture above)

- Stormwelt with natural edge

- Dainite

 

Currently I have 4 confirmed and waiting to hear back from few members as well on this grey chelsea MTO.

Do let me know if you have any questions or would like to sign up!

Cheers!

Steve
