    Just wanted to see if there were any more takers on the new pre-order system for fall. Looks like the only model we will go ahead with is the 532 Longwing in Cognac Cordovan. PM or e-mail us if you want in. [email protected]

    EDIT: Pre Orders close April 30.

    Would probably go for those if they weren't cognac. I'm trying to check of other colors in my shoe closet atm.

    BTW, how much thicker is a double dainite than a single dainite? For comparison, which one was used on the MTO cognac jumper boot?

    We used a double dainite sole on the jumper boot. Single dainite is like a normal single leather sole.

    I have a suede chukka with a single dainite and i wouldn't use that on a winter shoe of two reasons. First it will be cold and second you feel stones through the sole because it's so thin. I would rather use a double leather for fall/winter.

    I agree! There is also a sole that is half way between a double and single sole and this is the Carmina "500" sole. We use this for several models. The Carmina soles are a science in itself though... don't get me started. :)

    Not this time, I have my eyes for the Carmina suede loafers, I need something like that in my life!

    Might visit the store next month, they are worth it.
