    I haven't heard from Heimies in quite awhile.....nothing on the agenda. Haberdash I wouldn't even pick up the phone if they called again.

    One thing that will always keep my distribution small is the fact that, as a mom and pop, we insist on getting paid - and on time. That in itself eliminates 70% of the potential shelf spots for our products........

    Glad to hear you're still going, Ron. I have 4 pairs of your boots, and am overjoyed with each of them.

    Also, it appears that Francos has re-added their Rider stock to their online sale section.

    Hi I was wondering about the fit of the Ottowa hikers... I have a pair of the chukkas in the 4A last in D width, would the hiker last have more room across the ball of the foot, or have a bit more width?
    Thanks,
    Clay

    Hi Clay -

    Yes, the Ottowa is built on a dedicated last and fits wide across the ball (to accommodate heavy socks, or a couple pair of regular socks) and will also fit - correctly - with less toe room (in length) than a street last. Basically, it's a wide round fit.

    ps - glad to see folks jumping on the closeout pricing for the hikers......I really have to get the site back up to speed with everything we have here now but have just been too damn busy with our wholesale work.....will be fixed over the Summer for sure.

    Very good news, Ron. Still loving the Rider Boot shell chukkas I got from you in Richmond back in '08 as well as the Martegani Padova's from the next year.

    That was amazing. I nabbed six pairs of shoes, five of which are still in the regular rotation. Those prices were so amazing I just gave away a pair of drivers that were too small to a buddy. My only regret is that I didn't buy every single pair available in my size when I had the chance. A rare instance when I've regretted restraint (to the extent buying six pairs of shoes in a month can be characterized as restraint) in clothing purchases.

    Yeah, me too......if I could find more of that I wouldn't have to work so hard. But, that was a rare deal.

    I'll take 6 years! Good to hear......we have a couple of very interesting things on the horizon. Summer not the best time to launch anything though, so Fall it should be.
