    Well, MTO is more of a time trial than a foot race. T'will all depend upon what stitchy orders. From there, we will be able to count the days.

    1/4 or 5/16 inch sole? I think 5/16 is functionally better than the 1/4 inch but makes for a stiffer feeling shoe.

    I think the default is 1/4 inch. But I can feel the stones when walking on gravel or similar surfaces with the 1/4 inch sole. That's why I moved up to 5/16. YMMV

    This is a bespoke shoe and the coloring was a patina experiment and does not exist for their RTW/MTO line

    Perhaps in 2012 a Deco Brown just like it will be added...but it will only be available as a Deco exclusive color

    Just a little while ago there was a momentary break in the clouds.........rays of light streaming through in brilliant streaks........a choir of angels singing and unicorns frolicking in the green.........I thought I had consumed too many pharmacuticals......but now I realize I why.
