You could certainly place the order for the wickett and I can change it to the thurman. I'm also hopeful we'll have more Thurman options up this week.
Speaking of Thurman boots, I had placed an order for an MTO pair back in August of last year. I believe then the lead time was 18 weeks. How are things looking right now with production times?

In general, we are around 23 but it's different for different leathers. Feel free to shoot me your order number and I can check it out.

Order was #000101860

It was just a standard CXL leather as I just wanted to try the new last. I'm in no rush as I have plenty of boots, just no Nicks yet!

Got my Nicks delivered today! Really pleased with these. Great stitching and finishing all around and the clicking on the cxl is great.

These are on the 55 Thurman last, and the shape of the Munson toe looks great. Not overly bulbous at all, but I love the chunky look of them either way. Fit for me was spot on half down from brannock. I don't foresee much break in at all since I'm already used to PNW boots. Looking forward to wearing these and can already see getting another pair. Big thank you for the folks over at Nicks, couldn't be happier!

@Nicks Boots Shuyler - I was wondering if the straps here: https://nicksboots.com/pioneer-duffle/ use rivets or Chicago screws on the straps. and if rivets, is that something that you could have changed in house? I have done it (remove rivets and change to Chicago screws). but I am willing to bet that your set up and in house expertise is about 10000% better than my set of not great tools and worse abilities.

Hi, they are rivets. I don’t know about us changing them but that’s a good idea for the future

Yeah - Chicago screws are not only more durable, but they are easily replaceable. I know that some brands like Yuketen use the rivets for historical accuracy, but the heaviness of the leather can make the rivets subject to failure. It happened to a bag of mine unfortunately, that used heavy saddle leather (I would guess about 10 ounces.)

Finally got my Murowski boots yesterday and can't pull them on. The shaft seems a lot smaller than my Renegades. I have a pair of Lucchese I could never pull on for the same issue and that have been sitting in a box for two years. Did you guys use die's from a cowboy boot brand to cut them?

Sorry to hear that. They are a pattern inspired by the classic Knapp engineer boots so are different from the other pull ons. I haven’t heard this before for what it’s worth and we’ve made a decent amount. Happy to exchange them.

Hello everyone,

I have a question about sizing:

I have a pair of Nicks (HNW Last) in size 7.5 D. The width in this size is just right, but the length is a half size too long.
Can you tell me in which width I should order my next pair of Nicks in size 7.0 so that I have the width of 7.5 D?

Many thanks for your support!
