    Sorry, that's just my bad memory. Anyway, all blind eyelets is a showstopper for me (will take ages to get them on!) and I also think rubber sole and regular welt (as opposed to storm welt) is a bit contradictory. But maybe we could make the second run with leather soles and speed hooks?

    Here's what was proposed by Papa Doble. I could definitely go for double leather sole instead of Dainite but not a deal breaker. Flat or storm/split reverse welt, I'm fine with either of them.


    Edit: Oh well, guess I took too long finding this post, chocol8max beat me to it.

    The reason I was hoping for dainite (but correct me if I'm wrong) is that from what I've read, affixing a topy wouldn't allow the leather to breathe and can possibly trap moisture between the layers leading to premature degradation or even rotting (god forbid) of the leather. Feel free to correct me as I'm still learning. [​IMG]

    Sounds a lot like the original Harlech.

    Maybe we could come up with a completely new makeup for the second run that hopefully we can all agree on by the time round 2 gets finalised?

    Regardless of whether that is true or not, dainite also will not allow the leather insole to breathe. So there is no difference in that regard.

    I definitely need to reassess but it will be good to hear from the round 2 organisers about make up options.

    Exactly, but if it aint bust don't fix it :)

    Anyway, I'll be happy to join the second run (you might even be able to persuade me to organise it), but it will have to be with speed hooks then. But I'm open to negotiate the sole (though as you know I would prefer double leather) and I also think there should be consistency between welt and sole (i.e. Dainite and flat welt doesn't make a lot of sense to me).

    Haha very true.

    I am far more inclined toward a Harlech with speed hooks so I'm definitely in, whatever the sole/welt choice. [​IMG]
