    Hi so do most of you guys buy your MTO shoes from the US or directly from the UK?

    What is the normal starting price for their MTO? I remember speaking with the NYC store and they told me their MTO was starting at over $1000 for bench grade. That seems crazy to me! Any thoughts?

    NEXT WINTER IS COMING! Don't get caught unawares, all shivering and barefoot.

    Let's get these Snowdons made up in dark brown. Shearling lining would be awesome but willing to do without it if necessary to get the magic number.

    Anybody? Would love to get these going by, say, end of February or early March.

    Wow, you must be in marketing, cause your pitch was spot on!

    If that is an accurate representation of the color, I would not object - though I do prefer the usual brown.


    Thank you! I am not in marketing - hardly! So we can sign you up just in case San Diego is hit by a zombie apocalypse -during a blizzard? Could happen. This MTO could use the coveted mdubs Bump, notwithstanding the fact this is probably the least useful boot you could possibly ever own.

    hmmmm, oiled teak Snowden? Sounds tempting. Buda, is that too light for you?

    I think I can go for that but I really want the captoe like in that picture. Much more versatile. Shearling?

    shearling would be good. I'd prefer not to go dark brown because I already have a Coniston in dark brown.

    Do it! My thinking is that I want a heavy duty veldtschoen winter boot on the heavy vibram sole rather than ridgeway. Something for weather far worse than I ever hope to spend much time in.

    Where would you get the MTO from? I hope it would be cheaper than what the NYC store would want. They want over $1000 just for the most basic in MTO. Is there a GMTO rate like some of the other brands?

    Think I started this. So I am IN for sure. But for the regular dark brown calf only, shearling or no shearling, I'm fine. Just not the oiled teak thing ..

    I forgot, how many shoes do we need and what price are we talking about?

    I have my ZUG which is pretty heavy duty so would be with BootSpell on something not to dark. But I'm open
