    I don't think they could do a Burnham in kudu, but I was thinking more vintage cedar. I know the Woburn can be stock pulled, since it's a standard makeup right now for GG. However I'm also sure it does not apply for G width gents, other wise that would be an easy option...

    Walkton in Rosewood Kudu / Deep Vintage Cherry GMTO


    [​IMG]
    Specs:
    Price: ~ 8800 SEK ex-vat or over? (kudu upcharge?)
    Model: Walkton
    Color: Rosewood Kudu / Deep Vintage Cherry
    Last: MH71 or TG73
    Sole: Oak Bark Sole
    Lining: Cherry

    Interested parties:
    @mw313 - (narrow width) (MH71 or TG73)
    @TtownMD - (E width) (prefer TG73 but fine with MH71)
    @Ironist
    @harki (E width) (prefer MH71 but fine with TG73)
    @nickrut (E width on MH71) (F width on TG73)
    @bsmw (E width on MH71 (prefers)) (F width on TG73)
    @CFML (F width on MH71) + metal toe tips
    @Easily Amused (E width) (TG73 or MH71)
    @Flake (F width) (TG73 or MH71)

    Anyone still have interest on this one, so we can then have two GMTOs for the Rosewood Kudu?


    And just to clarify, the kudu would only be at the quarters (where the cherry is in these pictures above) so the cherry would be at the toe (so the medallion would look okay), the facing, and the heel.

    Thanks for the info. So you are going to cap the Walkton at 10 you mean? So just above is what we are currently at in terms of the lasts and what widths they need in each.



    Quote:you're added to the list. Are you okay with either MH71 or TG73?

    Yes sir that is very true I am debating about Woburn on polo suede color after seeing yours but not 100% sure because st James 2 looks more sharper

    Great idea and it is a great color.

    Thanks for the complement. My polo suede St James II is one of my all time favorite shoes especially when on the TG73.
    It's so funny you mentioned that but I'm going out to eat and wearing them now. Haha

    Yeah, I can't wait to see how my first pair fits and looks on me, but there's certainly a good chance it won't be my last pair of St Jjames.

    The other possibility is a GMTO, but at this point I'm not ready to order one.
