    thing is with tsm they're not taking any more preorders and they didn't do anything outside the size of 8.5-11 so it also left a lot of people out who don't fit into that category or are new to the addiction.

    I am keeping an eye on this thread. If it ever gets to the point we can get a cigar boot like the above pic with a 360° storm welt and double waterloc sole, then I am in.

    Same here. How difficult can it be?. So may folks have expressed interest in this boot! the grant last doesn't work for me and #4 is an odd color (I've seen it in person and know why they don't make much of it).

    From what I know it does take a good amount of work, to get form the dream phase of wanting something and the final product, but with the right help, it should not be that difficult. I am like you in finding #4 to be an odd color that does nothing for me, but some do like it. Hopefully we can convince Kathy to also do a version that is more rugged and is in cigar. I think what everyone needs to realize is that any sheel make-up will be a long process. It seems even normal make-ups are taking 18-24 months now. I have a couple pre-orders with Leather Soul that are over 18 months now.

    I am 100% in for this makeup if it would be organized.

    I love these boots. Happy with this makeup or the slight variation proposed by others on the thread (storm welt, oiled soles).

    Another pic of the "Thor Boot" if it helps the cause.

    Now that is a good looking rugged boot. I could see that aging beautifully. I would put my money down on that.

    +1 for cigar. I don't have a strong welt preference, but definitely all eyelets.
