Waiting for an order at Starbucks, I had opportunity to contemplate casual footwear. Namely, Force10's that have never let down.

Why was I contemplating casual footwear in a Starbucks? Because I saw this little number:

Now, shoe wearing isn't a competition, but if it was I'll let you all decide who won :p

If you are getting the shoes re-built, I suggest getting new insoles to replace the previous owner's foot impression. The mid-sole is a good idea to absorb shock IF you are doing plenty of walking on those long wingtips. Let the cobbler inspect the welt first. If the welt is good no need to waste money for new welt.
The new welt is for aesthetics. Wasting money is my job!

The last year or two do seem to meld together! A lot people haven't even worn shoes in a year.
I’ve only worn shoes about once a week, and even then it’s for just an hour or two

i do believe that is a 2020. There were two shell shows in 2019. The suede show was 2020.
Congrats! You passed my little test. It WAS 2020. I will pretend I was being sneaky rather than just being old and confused.

Wore my blue suede strandmoks again while gallavanting about Connecticut. I went to the U.S. submarine museum and the town of New London after a one day stay in Mystic and the seaport museum there.

Both days saw suede shoe use due to a light trip.

Sweet pics - always a thumbs up for nautical pics, and especially the USCGC EAGLE.

Ok, even though there no current GMTO program, I’m still interested in gauging interest in a MacNeil in Dublin, perhaps in the above color. Or another.

maybe visible eyelets in an antiqued shade

My default setting sole for a LWB is a double JR but Dainite would work too.

Those saying they’d buy are

@FatTuesday
@aero25
@pbrandes
@TheLawBeard
@dpgaloot

I think if there is going to be a trunk featuring the Macneil- something not quite officially confirmed yet by Ashley- having a Dublin option would be great if enough folks showed interest.

I know these things take planning and can’t turn on a time but it is worth a try.
A hypothetical trunk show/GMTO that includes the MacNeil (my favorite shoe) in Dublin (my favorite leather)?

Um, yeah, I'm your huckleberry.


So, I'll be honest...it's tricky finding time to fit these kinds of makeups on the sales calender in between promotions, so it's next to impossible to commit to something well in advance and say that we can 100% make xyz pet project happen in a certain time frame. It's more like...something of interest is on my radar, and we realize we have an opening in our schedule and seize the moment. I do kind of have my next gmto already up my sleeve whenever the opportunity arises, and then if there is interest in a Dublin model we can revisit that afterwards. Next year is far more likely than this one though. Also, if you guys are serious about having me pitch something we really need to be sure MANY people would get behind it (more than would be required for shell, and a "maybe" is far different than a commitment), and we need to consider current models. I can make the case for the Macneil but we are REALLY trying to stick with current styles.

Tldr: gmtos will only happen when we have a clearing in our sales calendar (which means we need you to be flexible and kind of stand by until we can work it in) and are far more likely to happen with current models.
Ashley, this is great info to have. Thanks for giving us a peek behind the curtain.

Ok, I'm a little out of touch with the current offerings, so I took a spin around the website. Is the only longwing around right now the Tremont sneaker?
