For comparison sake, the elegant round, and the newly developed last, side by side. The difference is minimal, but I feel that the new last is more balanced for a more casual style shoe. The tip of the last is slightly rounded off, and has an ever so slightly shallower profile. It is also about 2 mm shorter.

What kind of sole are we looking at for the adelaides? I'd vote double leather or, if it's possible, Rendenbach.
Double leather sounds good, although Rendenback isn't an option I'm afraid. I think the factory would really go into a depression if I'd ask.

Away goes any point in inquiring for HW shoes with Rendenbach soles and combo heels. 🤣.
Although that is a different factory making those, so who knows.

Yea, I think round will work better with the chukka. I'm 100% in for a Russian reindeer chukka on round. I'd do any sole, but I'm curious if you are able to source vibram's version of dainite @Notch .

Vibram's version of Dainite is possible

I believe we're getting close for the Adelaide in Sienna Hatch Grain, the GYW Chukka is also gaining some traction.

Perhaps we can proceed as follows:

1) Try to fund the GYW Sienna hatchgrain GMTO (6 required) and/or the GYW chukka in Baker's Russian Grain (5 required)

2) Hold off on the HW range for now, until I have sample pictures and until the factory and I have everything set up ready for production (perhaps we jumped the gun too soon on that one)

3) For next fall/winter, I will be placing an order with the Italian supplier of Inca leather, in which case I can include burgundy to fund a GMTO then. This will probably be towards mid-april.

What do you guys think?
Interested in de Adelaide in Sienna Hatch Grain :) Unless I overlooked, but could not find the last on which this model will be on; the Soft Square?
