New GMTO has enough people signed up and will be put into production.

Just throwing this in too, to help you out if theres a larger interest for that.

I feel like the standard black shark can be a bit bright, even if it probably looks great with shell, and there's a nabuck version.

I got my shark jods made out of it, and I feel like it's a better look than the other one, especially for a shaft:

What did you get the strap done in? The nubuck version looks grey in this photo...

Right now @Sam5p has expressed interest. What about the others? Any thoughts on shaft material?

Hey @jischwar , I think a Russian Reindeer Shaft would be dope.

However, I am out of space by a big margin. I need to sell at least three pairs of shoes before getting into this one.

I will be more dedicated to shoe selling starting this weekend, and I will keep you posted.
Obviously, if you confirm with the three other folks, just go for it.

@jischwar, do you have a sample image of the russian reindeer? I also think that sounds interesting. Thanks.

It says "Squalo Nabuck cocco nero" on the box, but no info on the strap. It's some kind of crocodile.

Yes - the nabuck version is pretty grey. It's a different look, but it's black. The grey shark was not possible to source within a reasonable time last time; it was basically a reversed leather with the top parts of the grain grey and bottom as black

Does anyone know which the thickest, most substantial suede is that Bonafé offers?
And how would this suede compare to e.g. the Kudu Reverse that they offer?
I'm thinking as a material for a rugged jumper boot or the like.

Here we go then :

Balway
Kudu - Chestnut vs others
74945 last
4 + 4 - polished brass
No Storm Welt
360 Flat Welt
Ridgeway Sole

Price : 750 USD

Chestnut - > 100 hides

Snuff, Espreso, Mahogany or Smoke - only Worth 4 to 5 pairs - enough for small GMTOs

Lorenzo didn’t have an estimate for the price

Most likely in. Are you thinking of using the kudu for the whole boot?

Interested. Chestnut is the first one? That's very nice. Any chance of convincing folks to go for the rounder 363mod?

Yes - I would go Kudu for the whole boot.
I like 74945 last better. I would prefer sticking to it. Some PCTs look better on 363 mod but that’s not here.
I think Chestnut is the richest of colors in the lineup .. I do like it best
