I think at this point we have plenty of people so its mostly a matter of agreeing/disagreeing on details. I did hear that Hatch-grain Col 4 may be in short supply though, so that could be a deciding factor.

I have an email out to Lorenzo this morning to check how much (if any) hatch grain is available
Thanks ... I'd love hatchgrain, but think I could live without it if EB can't source it

For my foot the difference is in the ball of the foot area. The 363 fits my wideish foot better, on 74945 I have EB feather that midfoot area, and it works beautifully.

Images for those still dragging their feet on EB’s amazing treatment of color 4.

Thank makeup is fantastic. I think the only thing I'd change is leather soles for myself.

UPDATE: There is enough hatch-grain shell for 4 pairs with hatch grain shaft. I believe right now we have @flylikeneagle @Mr Clemson and myself interested in the hatch-grain. @ryanluo23 are you still interested in this order?

Following up since I think we'd have a full GMTO if everyone is willing to commit. Please let me know if you'd like to confirm and PM me your email so I can send our info to Lorenzo. Bolded the decisions below in the make up that we still need to make

Interested parties:
ConfirmedMe - Flexible on shaft, prefer Dainite Sole
@flylikeneagle neagle - prefers textured shaft
@ryanluo23 - prefer Dainite Sole
@goalaso
@Vocans - prefer smooth shaft
ConfirmedMr. Clemson - Textured Shaft
Maybe 1 or 2 more folks from Reddit.


Leather: Col 4 Horween Shell, Smooth Upper, Textured Shaft vs Smooth Shaft
Last: 74945
Finishing: 360 Handwelted Stormwelt, Mid-brown/Matching leather.
Hardware: Antiqued Brass vs Gold Brass, 4 Eyelets and 4 Speedhooks
Sole: Dainite or Leather + Vibram Half-sole

I’m with you it’s the only thing I didn’t like and wanted to change about the makeup....but alas the majority ruled.

How many do we have now? Any thoughts on changing from storm welt to hand welt? I think the hand/flat welt makes the boot look less chunky.

If there's still room, I'm in for a col. 4 Balway with a hatch grain shaft. I'm rather ambivalent about hardware, but I think I have a slight preference for gold brass. I'd prefer a dainite sole.

How does the 74945 last fit in comparison to the 363MOD?
I think if you're willing to compromise on the gold hardware (rest of group prefers the antiqued brass) we would have 4.

The rest of the details are as follows:

74945 last
Mid brown storm welt (360 handwelt)
Dainite sole
4 eyelets 4 speedhooks

I'm fine with antiqued brass, but I thought there were a few in front of me? If they're not interested, I'm in.

Based on my notes you're the 4th person interested in Hatchgrain shaft. See below:


Me - Flexible on shaft, prefer Dainite Sole
flylikeneagle - prefers textured shaft

ryanluo23 - prefer Dainite Sole, prefer smooth shaft
goalaso- No response
Vocans - prefer smooth shaft
Mr. Clemson - Textured Shaft
SteveL91 - Textured Shaft

So with that I think we have our 4! I'll message Lorenzo about next steps and see what we can do for the folks interested in a smooth shaft. He mentioned we may still be able to group them together.

Well done guys. I’ll see if @ryanluo23, @goalaso and @Vocans would be interested in this makeup in Color 6:

Leather: Smooth Colour 6 Horween Cordovan Upper/Shaft
Last: 74945
Finishing: 360 Handwelted Stormwelt/natural edge (I think that we can adjust the edge colour within a single GMTO)
Hardware: Antique Brass - 5 x smaller eyelets & 3 x speed hooks (don’t mind 4 x 4 either)
Sole: Dainite(UK version)

Anyone else interested in the makeup above, please let yourself be known.

Stunning sounding makeup but it's probably going the wrong direction in color from what I'm after :)

I'm planning to do something in color 4 or even color 2 (garnet), I think.

No problem @Vocans . Good luck with your make-up. I already have the Color 4 with smooth shaft fortunately. It looks fantastic - you won’t be disappointed.

If you’re a UK 9.5, I may have what you’re looking for (half size too big so I ordered an MTO in UK 9).

Not to muddy the waters but is there a color 6 shell hatchgrain available ? I can’t stress enough how cool the hatchgrain shaft looks.

If it were included, I would have a hard time saying no to this makeup ;)

Lorenzo just got back to me regarding Color 6 availability. He is receiving a sample batch of Color 6 and will be able to make 5 - 6 pairs. He didn’t mention if it was hatch grain, but I have a suspicion it’s smooth. I’ll email Lorenzo and get back to you.

I was a bit resistant to mixing textures, but after seeing your Color 4 boots recently, I could very well be swayed. They look fantastic!
