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.
Kensington Black in action
Triceker x Kakfa Coffee burnished long wing
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
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
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.
kind of like this? would this be the color? I owned a pair but it was just 1/2 sizes small
$650 is a great price btw
Yes! Very much so. Interested or are those yours?
they were mine but I sold them. fantastic boot. really cool color, dont have to worry about any overlap with existing footwear
a couple more pics for reference
Great looking boot.
I'd do it but I already have three other boots on order right now.
What last are you ordering this on?
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
