    Is the second shoe here from Carmina? If so, details? I would be interested in a pair like this, but I don't see them on the site.

    I'd be very interested in doing an MTO of this boot. In fact, I was the one who posted the picture a few days ago :)

    Well, that makes three of us. I think six is needed.

    Same. Is this the cognac boot on the Robert last that we're talking about? What's the deposit amount?

    I don't know if I have misunderstood you guys. I'm really interested in the boot shown in the picture I posted (which comes from the Horween blog). That is:

    - Oscar last
    - Cognac cordovan

    Are you after the same stuff?

    AFAIK Skotiaebolaget has done an MTO with the same specs. Is it still possible to get included?

    We paid 50% of the total amount. The total price was something like 4800 SEK without VAT.

    I was the "boss" of the MTO and we send it to production 4-5 weeks ago so it´s closed.

    If this is the boot you're talking about, then we're on the same page. I mentioned the Robert last because I think someone (Nepats maybe?) mentioned doing it on that last. I'm cool with both the Robert and the Oscar so that doesn't matter much to me one way or the other.

    Yes, we're on the same page! I'd be only interested in Oscar, though. Robert is really cool, but too formal for my wardrobe.

    One minor worry is the variance in colors between different batches. The one from the photo looks very different from the one in epaulet's website---yet both are advertised as cognac cordovan?

    If my understanding is correct, that's the nature of the leather. There can be slight variances from batch to batch. That being said, part of it could be attributed to the differences in lighting in the two pictures.

    We still have this Cordovan Bal Boot in stock in UK 9.5, 10, 10.5 and also we're expecting a restock of more sizes in late January.
