    That's one of my holy grails. I assume that pre-order is full, though? I think I need to write or call them.

    On a side note, the Dr Jones boot from Fransboone (i.e. the Plaza last) fits me perfectly, better than any other boot I've tried. First time trying it with Chup socks, when I put my right foot into the boot the foot pressed out all the air, there was an almost slurping sound and the boot hugged my foot vacuum-tight. Almost a surreal experience.

    I've got to believe there have been/will be drop-outs. What was the build? Fransboone seems to be very fond of the crepe sole.

    Looks like they had a flat-welt/antique edge/commando sole in that timeframe - that is a nice makeup.

    I got an email back saying the pre-order, as expected, was full. They would keep my contact info, though, in case someone drops out and that's really all one can ask for.

    Never asked about the build but I would assume it has commando sole as the #8 and the black versions. Would love an antique edge, which I prefer with Ravello.

    So that's what happened to the 11.5D -- I hesitated and they were gone! -- I have to agree with you though
