    Yes they are, thank you :)

    The boots were the first made for the french forum Engrandepompe limited edition project. But the pattern is a bit different and exclusive for this project.

    Here is a picture of the final result.

    Could you share more about this project? I've always wondered what the story was behind so many interesting makeups. So each person got those own unique makeup? What was the inspiration?

    You can click on this link : EGP1 Project. It is a google translation but I think it will stay understandable. There you will have the story and you will find photos of each model.

    Hopefully we have an option like with the Milton.

    AFPOS, what is the difference between antique and burnished oak? I would love this to happen before the holidays as earlier poster commented.

    The conditions of our mto programmes is that we have to have a minimum of 6 pairs the same - this AS Milton mto is in Dark Blue Calf.

    They are one of the same Burnished/Antiqued Oak - during the finishing stages the Oak leather is polished to give the beautiful variance of colour over the toe and heel.

    Based on what happened with earlier MTO projects and timing, mainly the Miller & Benson, the milton is unlikely to be finished by the Holidays. I ould be extatic if it would.

    Thanks for the reply, we have even gotten an order page set-up. So, I couldn't agree more. If it happens, I am hopeful that calf will make it a little easier/quicker make-up.

    Anyone else interested in the Blake? We seem to have three people. This is my last shoe purchase for the year.

    Glad you like it! - No speed hooks I'm afraid - AS Miller is lace eyelets all the way up as per the pic - they will be superb!
