- brass eyelets
- brown laces
- brown slip bead
- Buff split reverse welt
- tan ink edge dressing
- vtread tap sole OR minilug tap sole. Both with leather midsole.

I've excluded full rubber soles as this will make a very striped and contrasting black/tan sole.

Here's a list of people who have expressed interest. Please quote this message and state whether you are in or out and which sole you prefer between vtread tap sole or mini lug tap sole. They almost look the same aesthetically with the vtread being a little less obvious. Please drop me a PM with your email that I will copy to Allison.

Here's the list.

We have 2 guys who were in if it was the more "dressy" look. Please confirm if you are out if it was the above make up.
1. @peppercorn78
2. @ironfist1906

Come on guys, this is another one of those shoes that will leave you with non buyers if you pass this up at $199.

 

I'm in. A Vtread would be preferable, but I can make due with a mini-lug also.

 

I'm also interested in a potential Eagle County MTO, if that ever comes to pass.

What about Chili leather, leather midsole, dainite sole?

Sizing-wise--what do folks do with these? I'm an 8.5 on the 5 last; got the Bleeker Streets in 8.5 which are a little snug side to side with boot socks, but are stretching. Go to an 8 E? 8.5E?

This sounds just like something I'd be interested in...please keep us posted!

What he said. Sounds good; thanks for organizing it so quickly!

I'm in and am cool with either sole. If I had to pick a favorite it would be the vtread.

I'm jealous of all the GMTOs and the chocolate suede PTB sounds like a winner. Can't wait to see it all finished.

 

 

Though I will say, olive suede and a make up inspired by this Carmina and I would have been in. V-Tread would work better since AE doesn;t have brown Dainite
