Would one of the roughout work leathers be too thick/stiff for the Manito? None of the heritage leathers are quite what I'm after but I'm unsure if a leather that heavy would be good for a shoe.
No, people order work leathers in the Manito and other heritage boots frequently. The most popular is Walnut.

I put about 7 miles on my "shoots" today. 5" Charley in work leather. No issue at all. Not quite a Manito but not quite a boot. To me, it's a bit easier on day one than waxed flesh as one example. Your experience may vary but that is mine.

Hi @Nicks Boots Shuyler, I just placed an order through Northern Republic for some Urban Loggers in Predator Orange.

1- I'm tempted to request handwelting, is there an upcharge?
2- Do the UL's have the option to come soft toe?

Signed, returning customer who has 2 pairs of McKay stitched and wants to see the difference

@Nicks Boots Shuyler I'm finishing up my Traveller order. Is the HNW last the same width as a 55 last? Or would you change sizing from 55 at all?

Ordered some MTO Urban Loggers during the Labor Day sale. Super psyched, but ended up switching to the try-on process since I was skeptical on the suggestion from the fit sheet (y'all were right, by the way). @Nicks Boots Shuyler , any chance I'm going to see them this year? After the back and forth on sizing, I didn't get the try-ons shipped back until 11/12. The order status says yet to begin production.

Hi,

It will be close; I would say late December or early January is most likely.
