I emailed Allison yesterday morning around 6am asking the same questions you all were discussing yesterday here. Yes she can honor the current sale price on MTOs and still waive the MTO fee. So a custom pair of shells is $505.75. I have decided I really like the Franciscan. I saw a guy made a pair of Franciscans in burgundy Independence leather with an Independence sole. Allison is checking on the availability of Cappuccino Shell. I am hoping to get a pair especially since I was one that emailed her so early and first yesterday. I want a double thick Independence sole with wheeling. I think that nickel buckle will look awesome on cappuccino shell. What do you all think of this make up idea?
