    Won't disagree on the price of the shell boot, but am still a student and thus it's still a lot of money for myself.
    Am not sure if I have as much spare at the moment as I am also looking for a MTM suit.

    I might be interested. My only experience is with Rain last.

    How does the Oscar last fit in comparison to the Forest? I have the forest (in a bal boot) in a 8.5UK and it fits perfect. I have the the Rain last in 8.5UK and while it fits it is a little snug. I have the Inca last in 8.5UK and had to get them stretched to make them wearable. I would like to buy these but am hesitant with knowledge of the Oscar last. Any help is appreciated.

    Anyone know if Betty and the gang are on holiday? I ordered a pair from the e-store last weekend and haven't heard anything about shipping despite a few emails being sent requesting an update. Normally I receive orders within a week of ordering but it's been about a week and a half with no word. I've spoken to Betty a lot in the past and she's never gone this long without replying.

    TIA.

    That's a completely different boot [​IMG]

    Anyway, Skoaktiebolaget already has a cognac captoe bal boot on a (possibly single) leather sole. They were still in stock when I last checked a few weeks ago.

    Does anyone here have the experience to compare the Rain to the Meermin Ama last; I own a pair of Meermin shoes on the Ama last and I would like to know if the rain is wider (mainly the waist).
    I'm gonna grab these late to early next year (Oh they were already posted [​IMG])


    Thanks in advance :)

    Hi Leaves,

    Please also add more sligthly lower boots to the range aswell, like seven eye lets, with or without speed hooks, in calf and/or cordovan. Think the black Carmina calf on dainite you have on the site. Though not black :)

    It may be just me, but I do think that the high balmorals are too "ladylike".

    I am interested. The one at Paul & Friends are nice as well, but this is nicer. And we all know that the devil is in the details. But the color of the high balmorals is very nice as well.
