Well Ive finally submitted my color 4 "u tip" boot order. My inspirations were C&J Galway 2 and @mdubs wonderful indy stitch boots on the grant last. Hoping it will end up closer to Mike's Indys but with a storm welt

Nice, what last did you go with?

I'm still debating my order. I thought I had it figured out but reconsidering the level of formality since I want to be able to wear the #4 pair often and I'm not sure how successfully I can pair rain with khakis or denim.

Maybe consider Forest? I like it as an in-betweener casual/formal last.

I went with Oscar last, chestnut edging,and double JR with metal (lulu) tips. I considered ridgeway sole with flat welt, but like you I would also like this pair to be versatile so went with double JR.

I am assuming you went with Model 80488, correct?
Whats the surcharge to remove the split?

Ummm, whenever I get my opportunity, I will go with Detroit or Soller.

Since you already have the NSTs on Soller, Detroit, with its squarish toes, might be a good bet.

I actually have 2 pairs on Detroit and I think I like the soller fit a little better. In fact, i think i like the look of soller better too, although I can't articulate exactly why (aside from the obvious toe shape diff).

I was originally dead set on a rain jumper but second guessing, as usual.

Whenever you have a chance, please take a side by side pict of Detroit and Soller and share it. I still need to decide which one to go with.

Will do, I can also include some other makers/lasts if helpful. Just PM me what you have in mind. I will try to get this for you tonight.

Edit: I'll include my Harlechs as well. That will be a good comparison since I know you have a pair too.

Nice I’m thinking of doing a similar make-up, but probably on the Detroit last. Debating between U and NST.

I’ll do a rubber sole - I was leaning to Victoria but may consider commando. Haven’t tried either from Carmina yet - do you guys have recomendación on either?

Also - was there a surcharge for removing the split?

I am also debating between the U and NST. I'm currently leaning towards the NST. I'm also debating between the Oscar and Forest lasts. I'm going with the double JR sole like @flylikeneagle.
