    Yes, more Bonafe MTO talk! I can't handle anymore awesome EG make-ups since I'm tapped out!

    I can't wait for my Galways, Shannons, and Falkirks! I think ETA will likely be 1st/2nd quarter of 2015 so the year will be off to an awesome start!

    Which Galways are you getting?

    Since I'm on my self imposed boot moratorium I have to get my boot fix thru other people. LOL

    Lately I've been thinking of getting a rosewood cc boot. Really upsetting that we couldn't get a gmto for Nevis or alderly. Might mto one or get a Galway. Maybe with a different last as I'm not sure if I'll like the 64.

    It is best if you can see 64 in person. It is very rugged last and it may not be for everyone. If you are even 1% unsure about 64 last see it in the person before you buy it.
    I like 64 last but it is not for everyone.

    Yeah I surely wish we could have gotten that one last person at the time as well. I think the Rosewood CC Nevis would have been a great boot. It was so traumatic that it sent me into a tailspin and shoe buying spree. LOL

    The 64 is a great Last for a real country boot (bigger and broader round toe) look in my opinion. It certainly isn't the casual\dressy sleek 82 Last.

    Thanks for the input guys. Do you think the size of your foot matters when determining last to use? I kind of feel like wider more relaxed fit lasts like the 64 might look disproportionate with my small 6.5 feet but I'm wondering if I'm just being silly.

    Just

    Friends, just a quick Monday evening update - I have gotten a couple of requests for brown highland grain instead and if that is what it takes to get this off the ground, I would be happy to go with brown highland grain as well. My preference is still burgundy, but hoping we can get five for either burgundy or brown before the end of the week. Fingers crossed.

    Interested in Burgundy highland grain in the standard E width:

    Myself (chrk33) (confirmed)
    @ikaika122 (confirmed)
    @Nullson (confirmed)
    @rydenfan (diligence)
    @KenRose (diligence)
    @sacafotos (diligence)

    Interest in Brown highland grain in the standard E width:

    Myself (chrk33) (confirmed)
    @ikaika122 (confirmed)
    @IGotId (diligence)
    @rydenfan (diligence)
    @tifosi (diligence)


    If we can just flip two of those members who are in the diligence stage for the burgundy highland grain, we will be ready to roll. If you are interested in joining the Thorpedo, then we can get the ball rolling with Skoak ASAP. Please PM me if you are interested or have any questions.

    @dddrees and @Ironist, instead of the Nevis that didn't happen, any interest in hopping on the Thorpedo GMTO I am proposing?

    The G&G black Sinatra is tempting, but I have the Enzo Bonafe Darth Vader already... although the EB leather is obviously thinner & their fiddle back is a joke (sorry but it is actually how I feel)

    Just to clarify, the suola a schiena d’asino (or "donkey back") is designed to be a mere beveled waist similar to a fiddle back. It is not a fiddle back by definition.

    Great. Looking forward to them.

    EDIT: I'm not sure the note in my order reached you. But I would like for my shoes to be delivered with the kind of laces that are depicted in the picture.

    How is the fit for the 3200 Modified last? I'm a size 10US but take a 9.5UK in Carmina Rain. Thanks.

    The model is 3200, the last is 946. Fits very close to Carmina Rain, we recommend using the same size.

    Great, thanks. Is it possible to add rubber/metal toe taps (at cost)?
