    I’m glad you like them audog!

    You have a point with the cotton lace. Believe it or not, this is our second rendition of the lace that has a higher wax content. Even now, it does seem a bit dry and won’t have that crisp look a heavier waxed lace does. We will improve this going forward.

    Wyatt, I have yet to purchase a pair of GS that I look back on and say "wish I hadn't bought those" I can't say the same for other companies product in my closet. I'm a happy customer.

    The groundhog in Punxsutawney said early spring, well not here yet!! It's 9 outside here and that calls for flannel, and flannel looked good with Cognac, so......... IMG_4782.jpeg

    Agree. I put some pairs up for sale today, and none of my GS pairs are anything I can convince myself to part with...

    @GrantStone When the EEE size come out this year which styles will be first? I really like the Bourbon and Cigar suede LWB so I'm hoping that those might be available. I know many would want leather sole but micro stud or similar would be my preference.

    A commando sole/lug option for you boots would be a good choice as well.

    Lastly any chance we could see a Brogue boot like a Trickers Stow or AE Dalton?

    Is the cigar suede similar to the coffee suede? Like you I think both of the suede LWB are great looking shoes, just trying to decide if they are worth the premium over a similar Meermin, they seem to offer these as an MTO every couple of months...

    Unfortunately, we won't have either Suede in the first EEE collection. We are excited to expand our collection, again slower than you may prefer, but we will continue to add to the collection. We will have 8 different options to start.
    -British Tan LW
    -Crimson LW
    -Dune PTB
    -Crimson PTB
    -Crimson Ottawa
    -Black Diesel
    -Dune DIesel
    -Crimson Diesel
    -Saddle Tan Diesel

    Haven't developed any sort of Lug/Commando outsole yet...

    The Brogue boot, while there is no definite timeline on it, this is probably the next boot we will work to develop.

    Hang tight... I feel Wyatt and I have to drop the term "Unfortunately" a little more than we (or anybody) would like.

    We do only carry the Coffee, Bourbon, and Ivory suede right now. He may have been referring to the coffee suede longwing...

    Thanks for the list I'm sure a Crimson Diesel or Ottawa will do while I wait.

    Disclaimer: I am an 8.5 or 9D, so the wider size discussion does not really apply to me.

    I wouldn't worry too much about using unfortunately often, GS has made it plain that slower, focused growth is the plan. It's just that we all want things not yet offered, and we want it now. We can wait, as it will be worth it, long term. Keep up the good work GS! Use "unfortunately" when you have to and know that we are behind you!
