    ^ thanks stmaier!!! Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and I'm more than happy to have the "other" us12 frankenstitch boot

    Btw, anyone noticed a difference in the thickness of laces used on this boot? Much thicker than previous makeups. Love it!

    I'm selling my Frankenstitch pair, size 8 UK, if anyone is interested. Worn for 15 hours.

    Luckily, for me, they aren't 1/2 size smaller....

    Dunno about previous makeups but comparing to my other pair of Carmina shells the laces feel much more rigid and less floppy. Similar to what Viberg uses for their 10 eyelet boots - I think they wax it? Pretty damn awesome feeling tho.

    I'm thinking of doing an MTO Kudu Arran on GG06 last. Thoughts? Any recommendations on sole? I was thinking single danite or maybe go for more country with a stormwelt and double ridgeway or danite.

    I went with the HAF soles and storm welt. If I had to do it again I would probably skip the storm welt.

    @Leaves

    Assuming that these are not spelling mistakes or mislabeling, what is the difference between Calf Lining and Goat lining? In picture above we see seven goat lining and five calf linings.

    For example, apart from color, what is the difference between Brown Calf Lining and Red Goat Lining

    I think the Ridgeway would be a bit much, and I probably wouldn't go with the double Dainite either. I think the Arran overall tends to be a less rugged and more refined look to begin with, so I would probably skip the storm welt as well. I would personally go with the Dainite sole though.

    Ah nice, you placed an order for Kudu Arrans or were these different Arrans?


    Yeah, the Arran is pretty city overall but I felt like Kudu wouldn't really fit with a city look so I was debating this model. Thanks.
