Alright gentleman.
I am excited to announce that a small group of us are attempting to launch the first GMTO in several years. We are doing a cordovan and shark boot, and we have narrowed it down to a few options, and we'd like a show of hands to see who would be interested in what.

We are choosing between black shell/black shark or navy shell/black shark and we are choosing between the Landon and the Higgins.

A few key points:

1. In order for this to be approved, we need to agree one ONE collective set of specs.

2. We need to have at least 20 participants, and this will be first come, first serve.

3. Once we iron out the details here and I know who is interested in this platform, I might open the ability up to the FB thread to get our remaining participants.

4. This will set the tone for future gmtos, so I cannot stress enough for important it is for us to try to come to an agreement together.

If you are interested, please take the poll above. By all means, if you suspect you know someone who might participate, send them this way.
How do we get on a waiting list? I'll buy the all black Landon sight unseen. I really wasn't joking about the shark trunk show.

If the Higgins ends up taking the vote, do you imagine you'd still be in? Just curious.

Well, I had hopes that 30% off seconds would also apply to SMU seconds. Guess that’s pretty greedy though.

Shark isn’t for me but some of you are going to love it I’m sure!

Please be sure to throw out the votes of those from Chicago. You know it is in their DNA to vote early and often.

My father wants Navy and Black Landon but actual boot is not a sticking point. I want the same thing. My dad is voting from the grave because we are from Chicago. Nothing unusual here.

So far Landon has more votes, and navy and black has a slight edge.
I voted for black shark but now that I think about it a navy landon would be better. I was worried about how the heel panel would be but I don't really care for black boots anyway. Now I feel like this guy
