    Hi all,

    Any interest in getting an order in for the Miller (Suede/shell) Balmoral boot? At this point, they have "some interest, but no orders." I am not thrilled about plunking down the money and then waiting a couple of months before production can even begin with 16 weeks production time after that. I am tempted to just go with the G&G Canterbury or the EG Shannon (yes, I know they have a captoe, so the style is a bit different.) The prices escalate dramatically, however. (In pounds): 550 for AS, 750 for G&G, 960 for EG (shipping and trees. Neither G&G or EG is quoted for shell.

    Anyways....any interest in:

    Cheers!

    Boots like the Miller, while nice from an objective standpoint, are really difficult to wear for most people.

    There are devotees for these mixed leather balmoral boots, but all in all you will find a general lack of interest.

    You just need six devotees for it to happen, though.

    I think these are absolutely stunning. If I weren't filling out my basic shoe collection I would definitely be in, but there are a couple staples I still need before I get something more interesting. I wish you luck in filling out the full group of 6.

    I think if the folks at AFPoS would stock them or order them from AS, they will sell very fast. Most people are apprehensive about waiting months after paying before even prodcution starts. I have ordered the AS Benson in shell though in 12.5 UK. I hope more of you step up to the plate if interested and these would go to production fast. I would order the Miller as well, but I need those in 13UK to fit my high arch. AS does not make anything in their exclusive range in size 13F or 13G.

    Love these. These are the London Lounge boot from Carmina in Cognac Cordovan from Horween. I ordered them off the stand in Pitti, but they are available as a special order through The Armoury.
