I'm in London today so took the opportunity to confirm my sizing on the Snowdon, and it was as I expected a UK 10. The same as my 335/341 boots if that's of any use to anyone.
Then, not half an hour later I had an email confirming the details for our GMTO, and good news - they are happy to do the Galway-style heel pull
With regard to the laces they do not have anything more 'heavy duty' but assure me that the laces are very durable.
The spec is as follows:
unlined shaft (as standard Snowdon)
Galway style heel pull
dark brown stitching
The price will be £550 with an expected turnaround time of 'up to 16 weeks'.
I'm very happy with that boot, hope you agree and will join me!!
I'm doing this on the phone which is a bit of a pain so won't post much til I'm home Sunday
After giving it some more thought I am going to go ahead and drop. Although I think this particular make up to be outstanding, I think its just too close to the Galway in Zug I already own. It actually appears as it's the same actual color in fact.
@nigeljh thanks again for all of your hard work on this. It certainly does not appear that getting the 12th or even the 24th person if they do a second round will be that difficult.
