    Nicks Handmade Boots Official Affiliate Thread

    Indeed! I meant "would be" and "potentially" in regards to catching my existing order on time, which we did. Does mean cancelling and re-ordering, but who knows, maybe by the time it reaches the front of the queue one could get it with eyelets and without a pull-tab. 🤭

    I appreciate the quick response! I've dropped CS a message and will see about it then. My order had updated to started just 18 hours ago so hopefully I won't be too late. I had contacted Andrew ages ago about whether he'd offer MTO in the future, with the W&C EB burgundy in mind, specifically...

    As Shuyler said, those are standard Americana, and if I'm not mistaken in CXL #8 leather. The Parkhurst collab is in the Falcon configuration. So if I were to ask for a change/exchange of an existing order for this collab, it would have to be in the standard Falcon configuration, currently...

    It's impossible for me to overstate how strongly I recommend anyone who's considering a Nicks to consider the new collab with Parkhurst. The 602 last is the single most comfortable last I've worn, and I'm extremely happy for Andrew that he's linking up with a maker like Nicks that has been...

    These are Burgundy W&C English Bridle. Here they are with some sun instead of a LED light bulb, and a few months earlier.

    Do the Munson-inspired lasts also have a taller instep? Very happy that these are launched before my pairs are put into production! Leaves me a bit to decide on a size, too. I'm 10.5E on Brannock with a higher arch and instep, and narrow heels and ankles, debating 10E and 10EE, I suspect 10E...

    In fairness, anatomical lasts aren't a new thing, the aforementioned Munson last dates back over a century, and there are other brands offering shoes and boots which accomadate the natural shape of the human foot quite well, the German shoemaker BÄR springs to mind. However, I'm still going to...

    Yes please to Munson last sooner than later, still hoping I'll catch it before one of my two orders starts production. It will comfortably put the E vs EE deliberations to rest.

    Nicks Handmade Boots Official Affiliate Thread

    If you haven't actually received an e-mail notification saying that your boot has gone into production, contacting Customer Support ASAP would be a sensible move. In my limited experience Nicks' CS has been very responsive (as they have been here, and on Reddit), so don't just default into it...

    Happy to provide a modicum of hopefully useful feedback, and offering these as quick-ship is at worst a neutral move. Regarding potential partners: Unfortunately I myself am more of the merino wool scarf ilk in recent years, having clocked over a decade since the last time I was mandated to...

    Nicks Handmade Boots Official Affiliate Thread

    Thank you very much for the detailed and honest response. I agree that the brown looks the nicest, but I'd similarly be willing to bet it'd likely see the lowest demand simply due to the requirements by the relevant clientele to the Tactical or Marshall models. At the same time, these models...

    Nicks Handmade Boots Official Affiliate Thread

    Is there a shortage in the WeatherShield leather? I see no quick-ship options for any of the models which feature it, and the recent Marshall doesn't have it either despite being otherwise configured to handle repeated exposure to wet environments. The lead times are such that I run the risk...

    I'm guessing it's safe to assume that there'd be no issue adjusting an order placed today, or one that's in the queue, with this last option once it's officially available? I have a pair of Americana lined up and looking to purchase another pair, and it'd be great if I could place both orders...
