    After the success with a reverse stitch toe derby in Vegano brown as GMTO in November, we now offer as the February GMTO a version made in the gorgeous Vegano burgundy. A deep wine red shade that will get an amazing character as years go by, made by the famous French tannery Annonay.

    The shoe is made on the elegant Oliver last. Equipped with TLB's thin city rubber sole, a durable alternative to a leather sole, and where TLB cuts the sole edge as close and also do the same bevelling of the edge at the waist as on leather soled shoes.

    As all our GMTOs this model comes with a heel counter in real leather which is very rare in this price range, normally you have to buy shoes twice the price to get this.

    Even more pictures of the model can be seen here (this in Vegano brown), more pictures of Vegano burgundy can be seen here.

    Price is pretty neat, if we may say so, €365 (€292 / $344 excl. VAT for those outside EU).

    This TLB Reverse stitch toe derby in burgundy GMTO is open during February, and we have no minimum amount so all orders will be produced no matter how many orders we have. We also offer the right to exchange if you don't find the perfect size at first try.
    Delivery in April.

    First day wearing the Skolyx Longwings. So far, so good. I ended up going down about a half size and, with tonguepads, they work pretty well. Will update this thread once I've worn them a little more, but initial indications are definitely positive.

    Edit: FYI these hyper-thick American Trench socks make these shoes look alot tighter than they actually are.

    Looking good! Glad to hear it worked out well with the new size and tongue pad.
