I don't think any of the options we have discussed are really suitable for running but, If the suede/cognac was in stock, I'd buy it. You put in the first order - for the suede/cognac as shown. Then the discussion has begun with numerous voices weighing in on possible changes. If I put in an order for the suede cognac, what then? Does that lock in the suede cognac? If it changes, how is that done? If one of the depositors doesn't like the change does he pull out? Does he compromise and go with the consensus , whatever that might be, and settle for a boot he might not have ordered in the first place? I don't see myself as vaccillating. AFPS offers and shows a product, I express interest, and then the product starts looking like it might transform into something different. Perhaps the order should have originated here and not been shown on the AFPS website. Thus far I have heard..I'll get it if it is pebble and not suede, or if it is a different color, or if the stitching on the side is curved. So, I will wait to see what people in their collective wisdom want and then perhaps join the order.
