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 icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

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:

last 228
width E
veldtschoen construction
zug leather
full bellows
speed hooks
commando sole
faux cap-toe
unlined shaft (as standard Snowdon)
regular eyelets
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.

This is the list of interested people in the order were added (minus NewStart who asked to be removed):

BootSpell

bespoken pa

crat

rydenfan

movoblast

Fred G. Unn

68Bullit

aglose

Montecristo905

RogerP

 

Those in bold have confirmed since I posted the final spec and price, can the others please let me know. I'll PM if I haven't heard by tomorrow. You need to be willing to pay the £550 (inc VAT) promptly so we can get this going asap. I believe they will deduct VAT where appropriate, perhaps someone can confirm this?

 

That leaves 12 to fill gaps that become available above or to potentially make up a second order for the same boot, a variation or something else in zug etc:

 

Handcuffed

chocol8max

PartagasIV

tdes81

Mutombo

Deusis

Nigel, please bold me.

Also, interested that Lauren isn't coordinating this makeup.  She was a pleasure to deal with on the first whiskey Harlech GMTO.

When I tried to get this off the ground about a year ago, I dealt with somebody other than Lauren - I can't remember her name, and this name doesn't sound familiar to me, but I can say that she patiently answered a number of questions and was very professional and easy to deal with.  Seems like Nigel has been getting a lot of green lights and good customer service though this process, so seems like (hopefully) all will proceed well.

So for US customers the price would $550 -20%?

I think it would be ~680 USD + shipping.

Ok

If the price is £550 incl VAT the price excl VAT would be £458.3333333..., which according to xe.com is roughly $708. Shipping not included.

I just stumbled upon some of the photo albums of the GMTO whiskey shell Skye 2 boots again - holy hell those are amazing!  I would sell half my shoe collection for a pair of them!

 

I can only hope someone drums up enough interest for another run of them someday.

post #3102 of 6049

Ha! I organized that run and had to pull off as we exceeding the maximum number that C&J wanted to make, maybe in another 6 months or so we can get another run going... Maybe this time the will actually put the brass eyelets on them too!
