    Those jumpers are gorgeous, but I doubt I could pull off the fur lining, as it's still 70*F here in winter. Are there any non-befurred boots coming anytime soon? Thank you!

    I actually own that John Lobb St Crepin brown suede with fur lining in that picture, and I should say it doesn't provide too much warmth as it seems. I wore them in 90s temperature in Missouri and they are fine. The lining is only on the shaft and not in the entire shoe.

    Really, 90's? That's crazy. Maybe it was the suede?

    My point is they don't exactly warm your feet up too much, so it should be fine.

    Hmm.. if that is the case, pretty overpriced for a pair of Chukkas eh?

    IMHO, you can't beat the JL St. Crepin 2009- purely a piece of art.

    Maybe. I paid close to $2k for it at the Hermes store in HKIA. Cute salesgirls are hard to resist.

    Guys,
    is anyone interested in group MTO of this boot. Maybe in a different grain color (burgundy or dark brown)? Different soles ridgeway? Let me know if you are interested.

    On the other note, Leaves or Gabriel can you offer some guidelines on the Soller last which looks awesome by the way. I know it is wide last but what about the length of it? Compared to Rain last are the size 10 in Soller and Rain the same length but different width? Any info would be welcome.

    I think this is great make-up I see you guys have almost sold out you stock.

    One more question is sherling real lambswool?

    I could be interested, actually I love these boots, but want different color - like burgundy or dark brown, like you said.
    Storm welt, speed hooks, grain/hatch/llama leather - this is a must, but commando or ridgeway are both good. No dainite for winter please.

    One question - the fur lining is everywhere like on the Bonafe chukkas or only on the shaft like on the Galways?

    According to Skoaktiebolaget description the vamp and shaft are lined in the shearling so I am assuming that means a whole boot except for the insoles.

    It is good to hear that you are interested that makes two of us. Yes the storm welt, speed hooks and grain leather are absolutely must. Either burgundy or dark brown grain works for me.

    Anybody else interested in this make up?

    Wow that is 4 people so far.

    Toblov and Boringbear what is your requirement for soles, we have not decided yet but it is going to be either commando or ridgeway with the storm welt.

    I am up for this fur boot but only in the original tan. I have a preference for commando sole, but any sole with some gripping power would be okay.

    Interesting, you size up on Soller. Do you wear it with the thick socks?

    Actually I didn't, UK9,5 is my normal size.
    The Rain chukkas is smaller than I usually wear, but fits better than in UK9,5 (I've tried both sizes in a Hamburg shop before buying).
