I would have not have thought it would scuff that easily. I guess I will stick with a calf version on this, thanks. The boot is definitely on my radar.

Agreed. Looks great on the shaft or as a decorative element but would avoid a whole shoe of Peccary. Maybe it could work on loafers for summer though.

Thank Leaves. I wear size 7E on 946 last and it fits me quite well so could you suggest which size should I wear for 74945 or 804? 

 

Moreover, could you tell me which last used for EB button boots made for Leffot? I read somewhere on this topic that it is 062 or 2102B but it seems that it still is not clear. I would appreciate if you could give me some examples about 062 last.

For fitting assistance, please email sales@skoaktiebolaget.se

I think Leffot uses the 062 last, but you should probably ask them directly. Their version is Blake Rapid I think, it's not hand welted.

I think that occasional updates should be in the normal EB thread as well so others can see what is going on and jump in once the general ideas are set. It is only fair for the many readers on here.

Yep, I'll be providing updates here and in other relevant threads as the process moves forward! Just hoping to keep the more granular discussion to the dedicated GMTO thread. Thanks. :cheers:

Okay but you can bring whatever details you want here at any time because I'm sure that many of us didn't even know of more than this one EB thread. I didn't until you mentioned it so many of us just talk GMTO ideas on here anyway.

Thanks for the assurance. Here are some updates on things (initial post can be found in my signature):

 

*Jan. 5 Update:*

- Shoe GMTOs will be $40-50 less than boots. So: $835-845 shipped to CONUS. 

 

*Jan. 4 Updates:* 

- [Black hippo](http://i.imgur.com/KJyvqrS.jpg) is available, although I will not be spearheading designs using this color.

- Wide fittings are available for 804 and 946 lasts, but will require 3 participants with the same makeup AND width to qualify for the GMTO

- Hides are sourced from Zimbabwe, with CITES documentation establishing such

- There was some question on how exactly the chain-stitched Norwegian is constructed. The stitch is *not* attached to a storm welt, and is instead stitched to a flat welt

While we're on the jag about exotics and hide procurement, can anyone speak to Bonafe's ability to access and work with Croc or Gator "nubuck"? I also saw mountain ram nubuck on Meccariello's instagram and it could be sweet in the right style of shoe.

post #1900 of 2869

Yeah.. well Meccariello's shoes are the stuff dreams are made of.

Just so you guys know, Massdrop is doing a special on a group buy of Saphir Polishes. The price is amazing and they are also offering the cordovan cream as well as the renovator on top of the normal polishes. 

 

Here is a link to the site if you guys are interested. 

 

the more that is sold, the better the prices will be for us!

I would agree. Is there anywhere that has a detailed explanation of his various lines, along with ordering protocol?

EB has normal croc just not nubuck suede croc. I have seen stcrispin nubuck croc & swatches in real life. Get ready to have your mind blow on varieties of color & option available. Totally well worth it, well if you are after nubuck suede croc.
