GMTO ZUG SNOWDON UPDATE

UPDATE: I spoke with C&J and the difficulty they had was the faux cap toe. The factory's recommendation is to make the boot without it. For me, this is a deal breaker. If there are still others interested, and one is willing to coordinate, please let me know and I will get you in touch with C&J.

WHISKEY HARLECH:

 

I heard from Lauren yesterday that she has 12 confirmations. Understand that she will be away until the end of the month but when she returns, our cards should be charged. Looks like we have a go!

That is unfortunate. On the other hand, I am happy to own a collectors item now. I am really happy with 228 last. It is very rugged and roomy in the toe box. I am thinking about picking up a regular Snowdon too.
In addition these Snowdon Zug model has triple soles, double leather plus commando rubber. It takes some time to break them in.

A beast of a boot if there ever was on.

Yes. If I don't hear from any member interested in coordinating the run by Monday, I am going to tell C&J the lack of faux cap pulled out interested parties. I guess Cheaney Perrine it is for Veldt!

That's too bad - I wonder if they would do it for a single MTO (not that it's worth 50% more for a captoe). They managed to do it so it can be done... The pennine is not a bad boot - almost went that route in fact had these not come to pass.

I am in the original Zug Snowdon group so I can't help much, but in my honest opinion, the Snowdon is such a beast of a boot, it really doesn't need the faux cap toe. It is so rugged, I kind of think it looks better with a plain toed work boot look rather the a cap which dresses it up more. Just my fashion opinion here, but I'd gladly forego the cap toe to get the boot. It's a monster.

Alfred Sargent Kelso from Shoehealer - Zug, Veldt, faux captoe, great price and great construction.

Without the captoe I think I might aswell go with the regular Snowdon. That too is an awsome boot, and much easier to buy. Thank's SuitedDx for the effort that you have put in!

+1. I bought a pair when I missed out on the original zug Snowden GMTO and they are terrific.

That was my original preference but no one has a 6FX... frown.gif

The Pennine is a really good looking boot.

I'll just throw out the idea of doing the captoe Snowdons in regular waxy oak (which was the original plan a couple of years ago that never got off the ground) or walnut hurricane leather (which I think looks great) -- you'd still have great weather resistance and get the captoe and the full bellows tongue that aren't part of the regular makeup. This assumes the issue C&J has with doing a captoe Snowdon is due to the zug leather and that they can do it on other leathers. I would think and hope they can.

Anyone familiar with sizing in regards to the Zug Snowdon replacement (Alfred Sargent Kelso)?

Can't remember what the price was on the Snowdon but I see the Kelso for about £320, anyone able to search back the posts in regards to pricing from C&J?
