    Guy, will these new 2045 Boondockers have a Dainite sole by any chance?

    Guy, any chance you will be doing brown (of any hue) shell cordovan service boots on the 2030 last in the near-ish future? Wondering if I need to keep my powder dry.

    From Leffot, I believe the Color 8 Shell on 2030. They sold out quick and would do another run if they got the shell from Horween.

    I am hoping someone will try on a pair of 7.5 black shell service boots and decide they want something else...I'd probably take it off his hands.

    While I may be confused, I recall reading (probably on this thread) that Viberg did not prefer to work with cordovan. What's the reasoning behind that?

    Here is a quote from IH forum: https://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=823.msg269630#msg269630

    According to Snowy, this is a quote from Brett Viberg:

    What I gather is that they will do some limited amounts now and then, when they can get the shell, to whet our collective appetites. But it makes sense for them to only do small, infrequent runs. Supply is very slim and, as per the quote, there really isn't much profit, if any. Moreover, as I believe Fok mentioned, not all boots should be made in shell cordovan just because it is possible to make them in shell cordovan.

    Shell cordovan has a tendency to tear while lasting, due to its relatively low tensile strength.

    Do you think there's a common perception amongst the consumer that Dainite is preferable to Itshide?

    I cannot decide between the black service plain toes and those colour 8 service cap toes. Both are straight up flames :smokin :NThat

    Maybe I won't have to decide between the two I just mentioned above... Looking forward to seeing the finished product.
