    The trick will be not just jumping right in on the December one. :) I sold my AE Park Aves because the last doesn't work well for me, so now I'm without a black cap toe for awhile... I think these will fill that void perfectly.

    Gents, I have a bit of bad news.
    Gabriel just got back to me.
    He actually suggested that he'd open the gmto and keep it running till January.
    According to him, the enzo factory closes for a period of 3 weeks in December and it might not make much of a difference as to when we eventually receive our shoes, whether we place our orders in December or January.

    Hi, do you mean that Gabriel would open a gmto for exactly the same style and last of what we are going to do? Coz I just see they are holding the gmto pre order of last 74945 black Oxford currently.

    Yes, he will open a GMTO link for our exact makeup, in the 804 last, not the 74945 last.

    I had a feeling there would be a shutdown in December and that's exactly what I was thinking.

    Kinda works as I was just offered a try on from a buddy who has the shoe from the original stock. Quite relieved that I'll be able to try on the shoe, first.

    For what it's worth, what I can do is ask Gabe to keep the link open till Jan, but maybe still ask him to put in the first few December orders to Enzo first. It might not make a difference in the end, but I will ask if he is ok with this.

    Perfect! Then you can give me fitting advise too :) are you going 7 or 7.5? All feedback points me to 7UK.

    Hmmm.... Guys does this mean that you aren't too keen for a December launch then?
    @MGD83 what do you think of these recent developments? Am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, or not having been quite quick enough with putting things together.

    Hey there,
    I understand that.
    I'll just ask Gabriel to set up a link, we can put in our respective orders when ready.
    Though I guess, I can't promise the December guys that we can get our shoes earlier.

    I don't feel that at this point in time a December order will arrive any faster than a January order. Holiday season is coming soon and I doubt that anything will be produced until that time anyways.

    Guys, the link is up, those of us who want to get our orders in, let's do so.
    Just to add, Gabriel will still submit the December orders first, for what it's worth.

    All feedback has pointed me to 7UK also, but I'm hesitant to do so. My buddy has a 7, so that's what I'll be trying. I'll be sure to let you know what I think.

    Skoak site says pre-order closes on 12/20. Are you still working on getting it kept open until January @ThunderMarch ?

    I'm very interested to know the differences in width around the arch and ankle, that seems to be my problem when I try on a shoe that's too small. I wear an 8uk in most shoes and they could always be a bit longer. So I'm very hesitant to size down. I'm also getting that chukka on the 74945 soon, so if you have any shoes on that last, comparisons would be welcome.

    I don't have any EB, yet. These will be my first pair so I can't comment on any other EB lasts.

    I can compare fit to Alden, Edward Green and Saint Crispin's.

    What is the story on the width of this last? I wear a 12E in all my AE shoes. Thanks.

    Hey there.
    What will happen is this, the Dec order will close on the 20th (watchidiot, myself, MGD83 and perhaps yourself?) and these orders will be submitted first. Then, depending on when the rest of the guys are ready, another January order will be opened.
    Thing is, depending on when the Jan order is launched, it might close at or near the end of Jan. So, the December guys might possibly still get their stuff earlier by up to a month? Even taking into account the 3 week closure.
