    They will hopefully arrive later today or more likely early next week. We have not received them yet.

    I admire those red devil chukkas, but there's no way I could do red shoes.

    I did take the plunge on my first pair of St Crispin's via MTO. Hopefully no fitting issues with my seemingly average shaped feet.
    Specs:
    107 single monk
    CRU606 upper
    Vibram half sole
    Dark brown reddish sole edge

    Wrestled with the decision on whether to have the rubber half sole and ended up deciding that I'd want to be able to wear these year round (we get about 5 months of snow). Looking forward to these!

    ^^

    Huge congrats MGDog. Sounds awesome.

    Thinking about this derby as my first MTO. Time to think about leathers...

    Thanks man! I figure I'd try to get an order in relatively early to hopefully beat the rush that will surely lengthen the 8-10 week MTO leadtime. I've never really looked closely at St Crispin's before, since I wasn't in the market for $1500+ shoes. But I couldn't resist the Skoak price.:embar: They certainly make some great looking shoes.

    Great look. Leaning something like this. But maybe a chukka ;)

    Good choice! I'm a pretty big fan of CRU 606 so far.

    This. Other retailers were selling for 1500-1600, and skoak comes in at 1.1k, and no upcharge for MTO. No wonder he was talking about some retailers having high margins.

    Not to break up the St.C party (reallllly wish I could justify buying a pair), but does anybody have pics of the Carmina fox suede in the wild?

    Glad someone said it...I didn't think StC would ever be so affordable.

    @Leaves when did the black shell frankenstitch go into production?
    I actually forgot when I placed my order, so I am just curious about the ETA.
