    Beautiful, @stephenaf2003 !

    Does anybody have an idea about why the number of Ron's offerings are at a decline? I remember a couple years ago there were a LOT of styles on offer, but right now the sale section far outnumbers the main selection, which only has the Dundalk and a variation thereof.

    Part of his restructuring effort in order to focus the brand more. He posted about it on instagram and sent out emails. Here is the post from his website: https://riderboot.com/blogs/news/turning-to-2018

    One cool thing about ordering from Ron is a not having to wait 6 months or more for your shoes.
    Natural Shell NST, picked up today, ordered middle of April.

    I had the privilege of waiting 3 months for a repair, but the factory being located in Italy really expands those timelines. Happy to get these back this week:

    I'm in for the GTMO. I was saving up money for a Carmina Detroit Derby, but I was about $300 short. Problem solved by the Rider Boot Sale code email.

    Order placed (if I didn't goof up the size). This really seemed like a deal to me.

    I'm probably gonna skip this one but they seem like a great deal to me. I've been super happy with both pairs of Rider boots I've gotten.

    Do they do different widths for GMTO orders? Or is it all D?

    Maybe - from the order page:
    "Want to make a tweak? Need special sizing?
    Send over your questions and ideas to j***@riderboot.com"
    (edited to protect from spam bots email harvesters)

    So I think if you email Jeff he can tell you right away. I have a pair of Riders from one of the early X projects and my daughter has some monkey boots from them that she really likes.

    Just ordered an NST in Calvados, a color I have not seen.
    @stephenaf2003 inspired my decision with the beautiful pair in natty he has posted.

    Sigh. Late September seems like forever.
