    I've seen some makers source some interesting suedes, museum color suede and scotchgrain suedes. Is that something y'all can get your hands on @Carmina ?

    An exotic material unlined loafer would be my vote - nothing too crazy, a lizard suede in dark brown or black would be great. Looks normal from far, but upon inspection it's far from normal. Plus I have too many boots already.

    I would be more interested in a shoe over a boot, yes something exiotic for the material, also a color that pairs with many, but not from the normal colors already available, it has to be something that is not on the standard list, it has to look MTO and not off the shelf.

    I'd like to see a recreation of an historic model. The one commemorating Matías Pujadas was beautiful but somehow flashy.

    I'm sure Carmina has tons of patterns of old models in his archives worth revisiting.

    You're right! I entered the link, just took a quick look... I already closed that window, now I'm steping away from my computer. Too much temptation, there are 2 boots and 1 swan neck... damn. Ok, I'm out. Must get away from devices with internet conection.
