    What Pastor said! It better have happened or else we paid a deposit for nothing, I'm sure Mike wouldn't do that to us.

    They already did MTO python austerity in navy and orange (which looks like chestnut, if I'm not mistaken). I suspect your suggestion would be a bit too similar.

    A bright green python chelsea would blow my mind, but I don't think enough people would be interested.

    Dude. That would be nucking futs.
    Ha, so I guess I'm not alone in having paid a late deposit for the Scotchgrain bal boots. Nah, Mike won't just leave us hanging; worst case scenario is that we just get back our deposits.
    Seems to me that the penny was shown just to display the Mist, which Mike suggested to use on the tassel loafer.

    I would pass on bright green python, but would be all over some sort of loden/hunter green loafer in calf

    I'd prefer a chiseled toe last for this one: Rain? Simpson?

    Exactly, Rain is preferred.

    Ok, seems to be a decent amount of interest in the snake boot then, but with what details? I'd be perfectly fine with a boot version of the austerity brogue but what do others want?

    ^ Is that in reference to the wholecut brogue?

    I suggested a python austerity boot a few pages back but it didn't gain much traction then. I reckon it would be amazing crossed with suede.

    For a summer shoe, how about a really luxurious suede derby similar to the John Lobb x Paul Smith collection? Grey or Purple Mike?

    chiseled can work would look right on this. any idea how Rain compares to Simpson in width . . . . more
    narrow, wider, pretty much the same ?

    The Rain last is a wider last with chiseled toe. Most people have to size up a half size when moving from Rain to Simpson and vice versa.

    This is the third Saturday in a row I've had to work, so to make myself feel better I ordered the Terracotta boots! I am also in favor of the blue double monks.
