    Good choice buying from Pediwear, you will enjoy your 5% off for pairs after the first purchase, and Mike and David are very helpful in terms of service.

    Espresso for sure, and they will look lighter in daylight too, goes well with everything compare to the Marron.

    Yeah Pediwear is a good retailer.

    If you're in USA, ask them to ship Royal Mail/Parcel Force.
    You can avoid the Fedex/UPS/DHL brokerage fees and Duty.

    I personally would prefer the Marron but the Espresso is probably more versatile.

    Guys,

    I have been working with Richard at Shoe Healer (what an awesome guy!) on a custom MTO and wanted to float the makeup here and see if there are other interested parties? In discussion with Richard I have learned that if we get 6 total pairs ordered than it is no longer MTO, and the price reduces significantly. Richard likes the makeup enough to order a few pairs for his shop so all it will take is 3 orders in addition to mine. Here is the makeup, I think it will look sick and hope some others may be interested as well...

    Stow boot in Teck cordovan
    Red lining & red pull tab
    Brass eyelets
    Toe medallion set back so it is not on the welt
    Mid Brown binding along the edge of the facings
    Natural Barbour welt
    Red Dainite sole


    The boot will look similar to this. It will not be identical but will give you a pretty good sense

    [​IMG]

    My thinking is that the red accents of the pull tab and sole would look quite nice as it would bring out some of the red tones of the cordovan. All payments would be made directly to Richard and I would not be involved in any way. Total price would be right around $650 including delivery. It would be like $150 deposit and then balance in 10-12 weeks when they are ready.

    Hopefully we can get a few interested and move forward with this makeup. Please feel free to reply here or pm me if you are interested.

    Great looking boot.


    I'd do it but I already have three other boots on order right now.

    If i knew my tricker's sizing, I would consider it. I've never tried on a pair and don't have access to a retailer.

    What would a 8.5EEE in the Alden Indy convert to in this make-up?

    would be in, but red dainite kills it for me. if it was a natural/antiqued sole, i'd be in

    shame

    You are welcome to make a suggestion as to something as opposed to just being negative about my selection. I am open to other options and if there is enough interest we can discuss it. Otherwise I wil just move forward with my own MTO

    meant no ill will, just was commenting on that if your makeup was liked enough by the shop owner to be willing to fill a couple slots himself for the MTO, it would not make much sense to try and alter the sole on my part.

    that being said, I'd take the boot pictured with a leather sole.
