    Sizing:

    hey george,

    I'm finding that I tear up the front of my leather soled shoes, seems I drag my foot oddly.. any chance of getting flush taps installed to avoid having to send to b.nelson or somewhere? I don't have a local cobbler I trust

    also, any black offerings in the works?

    thanks!

    we're not putting taps in right now - but these are oiled leather soles - meaning, they can take a beating
    as for other colors - we're hoping to continually develop this line in the coming months/years. Further, our retailers will be making store exclusives with unique pairings
    Pre-orders will ship this Friday!

    Only standard D is offered, but those with wide feet find that Horween's Chromexcel does stretch substantially to conform to the foot. Shoot me an email and we can help you get into the right size!

    Thank you! These boots were a painstaking 4 years in development. We laboriously designed (over-designed) a new and unique last to make the fit exceptional and the shape absolutely perfect. In fact, the amount of samples we made for these boots were more than we've ever made before - every element of these shoes, from the stitching, to the size of the captoe to the type of shank used was tested and re-tested countless times, and chosen with purpose.

    awesome!

    you are very welcome!

    Placed my order over the phone for the cap toe with vibram sole. Looking forward to receiving the boot next week.

    Pre-ordered the plain toes! Hopefully they're be in by Christmas? Should we receive some sort of confirmation if we emailed you?

    george these look amazing. i like the look of both the leather sole and vibram. are they both equally re-soleable? like if i buy the vibram, can i get it re-soled down the line with a regular leather sole?

    YES! They are equally re-soleable and YES you can switch soles when you do a recraft through us, or at your local cobbler :slayer:

    all pre-orders have received a confirmation response from either myself or Tony. You will receive a further email with tracking number when they ship. As for before Christmas, they are shipping Friday, and so only an overnight option would get them to you before Christmas - something that if you'd like, you can upgrade to. Just email info@oakstreetbootmakers.com about it!

    we're VERY low on sizes - pre-order is through tonight, and then it's every man for himself when they go live on the website tomorrow!

    Placed a phone order with Tony. Was feeling adventurous and ordered the capped toe with vibram sole. Shout out to Tony for answering all my questions regarding fit, sole comfort difference and pre-conditioning/protecting leather only with chicago's very own Venetian Shoe Cream!

    We are set to release these officially on Thursday. All pre-orders placed through the rest of tonight will receive free shipping and you have the best shot of having your size available before it's every man for himself online tomorrow =)

    Great job on these. Love them. I would be all over them with a black Vibram lug or commando sole. Leather soles in the winter just aren't my thing, and I've got enough boots with the Vibram Christy - that said, I know many people will love them just as they are - and I beg you to come out with some more rugged sole options!
