    He do you get in contact with Betty? Do you use the form on the website? If there is a direct email would someone mind PMing it to me?

    Thanks

    Was looking on the Skoaktiebolaget website and noticed they have a Tanker Boot arriving in the fall, model 80274. Sounds very interesting. Anyone have a pic of what this looks like?

    Sorry, no, it's not on the Carmina website either, I think it's either an archived model or a very new one. :) It will kick ass either way, you can count on it! :)

    Real tanker's boots are 8" and have 1 monk strap for the instep and one that wraps 3 times around the shaft. It's so laces don't get caught inside tanks and cause problems. In the military if you are wearing tanker's boots and not a tanker you will be mercilessly mocked and probably get in trouble. [​IMG]

    Wow, that boot sounds like it could be really badass. Leaves, what last is it on? And why suede for such a tough sounding boot?

    Our boots are suede or nubuck or whatever. The days of the spit shine are over.
