    Does Motor have its own website or is it only the Moto website?

    Do they only carry 3 sizes like Moto?

    Both boots are nice but the broken-in chukkas are unreal.

    The main webpage of "Leather Arts & Crafts Moto" lists three sister branches: Leather & Arts Hideo Motoike, Leather & Silver Moto, and Motor.

    http://www.motostyle.jp/

    Not sure of the relationship between them, but I guess they are all the work of Hideo Motoike. Mr. Motoike is quite an artist and his animal sculptures etc are displayed throughout the Moto shop, and he is also the person who beat up those Lace Up boots (above) on the North American motorcycle trip.

    Motor has five sizes, 7.5-9.5.

    Do you know how they fit? Do they run big? If I wear a size 10 in RedWings could I manage? I was also wondering that with the regular Moto's as well.

    i don't think baker's does returns on custom made to order. i sent mine back a month ago assuming i was getting a exchange for a different size. mind you mine was brand new i only opened the box to try on one side of the boot on a carpet immediately knowing i'd need a bigger size. i sent it back the same day i got them. i waited about 8 weeks and i'm pretty sure they sent me back the same size i sent in.

    its the same size for sure, don't know if its the same exact boot i sent in but i honestly hope they didn't send my pair back in to have the same exact size re made. at this point i don't know what to do besides maybe take a big hit and sell a brand new pair of custom made to order boots for $400?? in buy/sell because i don't want to take my chances waiting 8 weeks + again and $45 to send it back.


    the worst part is this is how they sent me back the boots all the paper tags ripped off of it when i sent it in all attached packed the same way i got them neatly.

    Maybe instead of complaining or wondering, you should have contacted Baker's directly and spoke to someone?

    I did the first time multiple times he assured me in around 8 weeks I would get the same configuration but a size up.

    My custom Whites finally showed up after a LONG 8 weeks. Couldn't be happier with them and with Kyle from Bakers Shoes. [​IMG]
