    Hey y'all I got a little question.

    Is this boot in the 3751 model or the 2475mod? As skoaktiebolaget's FB also has this in the latter.

    Isham Proposed GMTO

    Almost there people. It appears as we only need 1 more confirmed E and we'll also need to make a final decision on the sole soonas well.

    Specs:
    Price: ~ 8800 SEK ex-vat or over? (kudu upcharge?)
    Model: Isham
    Color: Rosewood Kudu
    Last: MH71
    Sole: Double Leather Oak Bark Sole or Double Dainite still to be determined (Only one @daizawaguy against Dainite)

    @justinkapur Depends on stifness of material Dainite
    @harki E Dainite
    @dddrees E Dainite
    @mw313 narrow Double Leather
    @grc1 E Dainite
    @whyriver E Dainite
    @daizawaguy E Double Leather
    @JubeiSpiegel Double Leather
    @bumblebee E Dainite

    I think leather sole would be a nice change. In terms of size you know I'm super narrow for the count.

    If push came to shove I would go with a Double Leather sole, unfortunately it appears that @grc1 would want sunken metal toe plates with that option. To be honest I think that would be almost as hard to sell if not harder than Dainite is to sell to people who prefer leather.

    Metal Toe taps are an Ala carte option, so he can have his toe taps regardless. I would prefer double leather soles as well..,

    Yea I'm open to either but prefer plain leather for either the walkton (single leather) or Isham (double leather). I'm okay with the toe plates if needed but would prefer not for the added cost and potential damage to my floors in my house.

    Isham Proposed GMTO
    It appears as we have enough people (6) in the same width as long as everybody is willing to go with a Double leather sole. If we wish to move forward with a Dainite sole we will possibly need one more person and a few of the odd size people may drop out.

    Specs:
    Price: ~ 8800 SEK ex-vat or over? (kudu upcharge?)
    Model: Isham
    Color: Rosewood Kudu

    Sorry to disrupt the kudu craziness, but does anyone know when the bonafe chukka gmto from skoak closes? the order page says Sept. 3, but extended by request.

    A while back everyone seems quite excited by the Hove, recently it seems most of the love is for Isham. They look quite similar to me.

    Do I miss something or is there any practical reason why the Hove falling out of everyone favour?

    I find the Isham more casual than the Hove and this is a casual leather to me

    For me I think it's the other way around. Hove is more casual, but I prefer the extra eyelet of the Isham. That's enough to make me prefer it.

    Interesting, now thinking about this, I am actually with @rydenfan on this. Hove is one of the dresiest shoes I have seen, especially when the 3 eyelets version someone did a while ago

    I'd be concerned if you knew anything at all about shoes. LOL

    I've always seen it the other way.

    [​IMG]
    Specs:
    Price: ~ 8800 SEK ex-vat or over? (kudu upcharge?)
    Model: Walkton
    Color: Rosewood Kudu / Deep Vintage Cherry
    Last: MH71 or TG73
    Sole: Oak Bark Sole
    Lining: Rioja or Cherry

    Interested parties:
    @mw313 - (narrow width) (MH71 or TG73)
    @TtownMD - (E width) (prefer TG73 but fine with MH71)
    @Steel28

    Anyone still have interest on this one, so we can then have two GMTOs for the Rosewood Kudu?

    I like both the Isham and the Hove but also feel that the Isham suits the causal Kudu leather better. I would have been fine with either.

    so do I. I love the Isham and compare it to the EG Dover. (no one try to go after me for saying that!)

    and are you going to get in on either the Isham or the Walkton GMTO?
