Silly question... If you pick the Dainite sole option, would you be able to choose the colour?Y’all know this is my favorite time of the year. What time? TRUNK SHOW TIME! Get ready! We’re lean and mean this year with a slightly more streamlined show, but we've included some seriously rare colors this year that should get even our most avid collectors excited
■ WHERE AND WHEN:
• Orders can be placed in any store from October 29th- November 8th.
• The first leg of the show will kick off in LA, Michigan Ave, Madison Ave, Nashville, Dallas, and KOP. Each of those stores will have mixer events Friday October 29th.
• The second leg of the event will go live in Boston Newbury, Indianapolis, Denver, Tampa, DC City Center, and Scottsdale, where they’ll have their mixer event Friday November 5th.
• Although non “host” stores will not be having actual in store events or physical samples, they are all absolutely participating in this show! They will be armed with tons of reference photos and information, and are completely prepared to help you with anything you'd like.
• You do not have to order in person. You can call or email ANY store with your selections and participate remotely! SUPPORT your favorite store by reaching out early and letting them know you plan to participate! Many stores keep detailed notes about trunk show orders before the show to make sure the kickoff day goes as smoothly as possible.
• The mixers will officially begin in host stores at six, but they can begin keying in preorders starting the morning of 10/29/21. You might meet some like minded enthusiasts in your area!
■ COLORS AVAILABLE:
• Colors offered for this cordovan event will be: Brown, Black, Burgundy, Chili, and (DRUMROLL)...MARBLED BLACK and NATURAL.
• Natural is the great white whale all our customers beg us for every single year. At one point, per Horween...for everything thousand shells produced, only 10 to 20 of them were clear enough to reserve for Natural shell. Marbled black is a stunning wildcard that pulls green and brown as you shave the black shell down. Of all the marbled shell we've utilized, Marbled Black shell is the most unique in my opinion. And you know the best part? We’re considering both of our exciting additions unlimited currently. All colors are available to all stores.
