Ok folks the "casual" bitter suede PTB has hit 12. Here are the specs that I will submit to Allison.
Here is the proposed GMTO specs
Base model: Badlands, 5 lasted PTB
- bitter chocolate suede with contrast (tan/alabaster) stitching
- 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.
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.
