    York sole might be a good middle way.

    So just so we get an idea how many guys are interested in the boot? We can take it to a PM then instead of blowing up this thread

    Skoakti or epaulet.

    From mike at epaulet:
    So, I asked about that. The leather there is called "Lama," which is a soft tumbled calfskin. You guys may have seen our Fitzgerald shortwing in the grey version of this leather. It's excellent, but the supplier recently went out of business. They may have enough to make a few pieces up, but I'll have to find out. In person it's pretty close in tone to caramel calfskin, so it might be a bit of a duplication there.

    It might be difficult but let's see if there's a possibility!

    The Forest is not really wide or Bulbous. Oscar is probably the closest, but as a boot it only really fits that description in a side-by-side with Forest.

    I will be purchasing if I beat the other vulchers to it. Fantastic boot. Which last? (ok, maybe I won't, depending...).

    I have them and they're great, especially for that price. I wear them in the same size as I wear all other lasts (except Simpson). For the price, I'd get them and not look back. Great loafer, IMO.

    Here's a pic of them next to the Soller-lasted chukkas from http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/

    Commando sole? No speed hooks? I think I need command sole, but might be able to live with speed hooks
