Damn, beat me to it!
Do you mean Balmoral boots? Their RTW is in the pipeline for later this year but you could go MTO for around €400. I already enquired into an Austerity bal boot but put it on the back burner when I jumped on the group MTO. Email Sandro or Pepe and they'll sort you out
Meermin Balmoral boots' pattern still looks very off and needs to get more refined.
I agree about the one on their tumblr tho I thought it was maybe that the calf/suede combo was hideous imo
double monk boot
You having these made up ?? Your an animal !!!!!!!
lol yeah, being made on a double rubber outsole. Will be a nice "going out" boot that can withstand the elements (booze)
Can someone liken the olfe last to another manufacturer so that I have a better idea on fit? I want to order a pair but am hedging on size [between an 11 and 11.5 UK]. They'll be shipped to France, so it isn't an enormous deal to return the wrong pair, but I'd still like to avoid returning if possible.
I'm putting money away now for the next MTO. Stupid outside, emergency expense forced me out of the current one. Never again.
Also, a nicer chukka woauld be a pretty cool mto. Or an austerity brogue boot.
Has anyone been making new orders or requests since the start of the year?
I sent them a question about sizing via their webform and haven't received an answer after more than a week. I personally emailed to pepe on monday and I am currently awaiting an answer...
What is your experience with response times? I keep reading about incredible delays with processing orders etc.
I think they are loaded with work right now.
I often get emails at 2 am from Pepe, meaning they are working their ass off.
I got a response the same day. I wrote in English and received a response also in English, so there doesn't seem to be a hierarchy that results in Spanish responses coming in first. Additionally, my question was about sizing and lasts, so the question was pretty similar.
Damn the new rey last is tight!
what do you all think, is it too tight on the vamp?
I think yes. Sorry.
Yes...it looks like your foot is about to snap it.
