    RogerP - I hear you. I need another derby boot, esp on a leather sole, like, well... it doesn't matter. I'm in on this - it won't be the St. C. but seeing that boot was like finding religion and I am quite confident Bonafe will do great work. Maybe a MTO Bonafe bal boot will be next for me if I don't order those Shannons. It's funny - I thought I'd be ordering loafers as spring approached but I'm just not able to stop with the boots.

    I can't stop with boots either! I predict you'll be delighted with these. I'm certainly tickled pink with the tan version.

    The Shannon boots now on pre-order do NOT come with shoe trees already included in the price, correct? Apologies if this has been covered already, but what has been general experience with duties when ordering from the US?

    You won't get any duties (or at least very very low chance as it's through USPS)

    Two shipments from Skoak to California via Swedish Post/USPS, no duties.

    Quick question.
    Is the shipping included in the USD conversion app or is just the VAT taken out? Thanks!

    Was about to order a single MTO bal boot but perhaps there's interest for a GMTO?

    Captoe bal boot

    [​IMG]

    Antiqued burgundy upper, 2102 soft chiseled last, beveled black sole

    Black suede shaft, 5 blind eyelets + 4 speed hooks.

    Would anyone be interested in joint for this or something similar?

    ^^^ sounds interesting. I'm not sure the black suede is grabbing me - I'll try to dig up some web pics of similar combos if I can find them.

    I know I would be down with all burgundy calf. Heck, they could just turn that shoe into a tall bal boot and I'd be a happy guy.

    Burgundy with black suede? Not for me, but I do wish you luck. I will definitely be interested in seeing how they turn out.

    Absolutely up for changing to all burgundy calf. Would prefer no medallion but otherwise agree re: changing that shoe into a tall bal boot.

    I can live without the medallion, you okay with the brogueing? I think it would add a nice touch of texture.

    Yep, I had been debating adding brogueing anyway.
