Loving those suede pairs!

I (selfishly) hope we see more models released with a flat welt. Aesthetically the storm welt is nice but they look clownish on my already large feet 😢

If you are talking about the Red Wing Iron Ranger look almost, then no, they don't. They have a more casual looking round last, but not much height to the toe box to give off this look. Even the new Brass Boots I don't find look like the typical 'clown shoe' toe box. Try a pair, won't regret it. Can always return them if you don't like them

Not super sleek chiseled pointy toes, but they definitely don't look like Iron Rangers either. Kind of the perfect middle ground in my opinion.

@GrantStone (or anyone else that knows) - Question about pre-orders. If someone misses out on an initial pre-order, are there a small number pairs made available on the website once they arrive?

For example, I see some sizes available for some of the previous limited releases such as the Honey Glazed Ottawa and Loren Diesels.
If there is some balance material, we will make up pairs in core sizes. This doesn't happen every time, just depends on how the pre-order sells and whether we are on a tighter timeline. Is there a certain item you are looking for? The loden suede for example will be stocked this summer.


Awesome. Really loving the Brass Boots, but I think 8.5EEE would fit best still. 9.5E is good but not great.

The only thing I’m not a huge fan of is the unlined tongue. Is there a particular reason for this? It made break in a bit easier, but I don’t notice much difference while wearing. Mostly just not a huge fan of it aesthetically. But that’s really just splitting hairs.
We just wanted to go in this direction for the brass boot. These leathers are so thick that it doesn't really need to be lined and for some customers, breaking in the boots can be tough or just a little uncomfortable, particularly on the ankle/shin.

Thanks - I do own a pair in Bourbon but was wondering about the darker shades of suede.
The coffee has a warm base where the espresso is very dark with almost a grey hue. Here are some more photos! It's already dark outside so these were taken inside the warehouse (the lighting isn't very flattering).

Thanks for the info. I was eyeballing the Tan Suede Diesels.

Ah, okay. It may not be what you are looking for (not crepe sole) but we will have a new tan suede diesel coming out next month on the Vibram wedge sole.

Espresso's interesting - haven't run into that color very often

Thanks Wyatt. I was most interested in the one with the micro stud sole but will keep an eye out for the new release.
