Ok, so I just spoke with Lorenzo. If we keep with the makeup I posted you can decide whether you want a Vibram Commando, or a Vibram dainite sole. Your choice. How's that sound? Just let me know which sole you want and we can get this going.
Hey @scubajose,

Thank you for being on top of this.

Just to make it clear, this is what we have:

- Model: Balway
- Uppers: Unglazed Natural Shell
- Shaft: Hatchgrain Unglazed Natural Shell
- Eyelets: 9 Brass eyelets
- Welt: 270° flat welt with natural edge dressing
- Sole: Commando or Dainite
- Last: 74945

We will just send you the preffered sole individually which you will rely back to Lorenzo. Correct?

Yup, that's pretty much it. If you have Lorenzo's number you can do it yourself, or you can tell me and I'll get it to him. Just let me know which.

On the 74945 last, correct? If so, I’m in! Vibram dainite for me.

That's right! Just let me know which last and which sole and I'll relay it to him. That or contact him individually, but just let me know you already informed him.

I’ll go 74945 last with vibram’s dainite. I’ll send him a message on IG but please let him know as well. Thanks!

So, just to be clear. We can pick the last and sole individually even if the combination does not make 4 participants?

Hey @stephenaf2003 , I would be in but only on 74945 last. As you, I also prefer double leather but could do Dainite if it is the prevailing selection.

- Model: Balway
- Uppers: Unglazed Natural Shell
- Shaft: Hatchgrain Unglazed Natural Shell
- Eyelets: 9 Brass eyelets
- Welt: 270°or 360 flat welt with natural edge dressing
- Sole: Double leather or Dainite
- Last: 74945

@Mr Clemson , would this design be OK for you if it is Dainite?

@nishant , i saw you inquiring about this boot on Reddit, would you be in for this one?
Big eyelets or small : I was thinking Viberg sized small eyelets ..

Ridgeway could be done as well from size 8 to 11.

My recent Balway Colour 4 MTO has the smaller eyelets and Ridgeway sole. Both look great!
EB had/has issues obtaining the larger-sized Ridgeway heels which are needed on storm-welted boots (don’t know if this issue applies to 360 flat-welled though). It only became apparent near completion of the order so I went with a Dainite 3 7/8 heel; EB’s largest available Ridgeway heel is 3 3/8.

@scubajose - nice work organising the GMTOs. That’s possibly the quickest uptake I’ve seen here. Hope they all get up.
