    Steve--

    What sole are you going to do for split toe boot? Also, how much taller are you thinking for the shaft? All eyelets or some speedhooks?

    As far as the shaft, this picture will give you a better idea. 7 eyelets total. For sole & speedhook options I will leave that up to MTO participants! (possibly Brown rubber sole?)

    They are $525 (with free shipping & a shoe care gift as well).
    Half deposit and half before delivery ;)


    will do!

    Not familiar with the Soller Last, how does this compare to the Forest Last?

    In regards to cost, how much are we talking about?

    Thanks for trying Justin.

    What kind of length are we talking about on the shaft of the boot?

    Yeah, can't mock-up a boot without knowing how many eyelets to add :)

    EDIT: Here is a random 7 eyelet for reference :)

    The shaft of the current picture shows 5 eyelets but we are going for 7 eyelets like the boots below.
    Soller last (EE) is very similar to Forest last (E) but fits a little wider. good amount of toe box room as well. Width wise it will be very similar to Inca (but again with more toe box room)
    The price for shell boots are $875 which includes free shipping and a shoe care gift as well.

    Thanks Steve.

    I'll have to think about it, I already have a MTO I'm waiting on for a Dark Cognac Cordovan Jumper Boot.
