Follow up on the SoH Chukkas:

Had the chance to wear them a full day now. No blisters on the heel or toes. Very comfortable boot. The Utah calf is very soft and has been very kind to my feet.Due to my protruding pinky, Tom recommended me to stay with the Elegant round and Round toe, and stay away from The Contemporary Almond last, which is a little bit tighter in the toe box. I hope Tom will make more shoes on these last in the future.

Any news on these?




Hi Mads! I have your email open but didn't get around to it yet. Part of those have been finished, only the ones in Sienna hatch grain (3 pair) are currently still in production. I don't think they'll be that much longer, although in China there currently is a week-long Holiday going on... I hope to have an answer when the workshop re-opens, I just emailed them to ask when this will be exactly.

The Halway sample is finished and being Fedex'ed to me.

I would propose that I open a couple of GMTO's later this week, for different combinations of the Halway.

Personally, I was thinking (for now)

- All black Halway
- Dark Brown Utah Halway
- Some kind of Country Grain calf + suede Halway
- Dark Brown Utah + suede Halway

6 people minimum per makeup, approximately 395€ incl. VAT or 326.50€ excl. VAT, and I believe they could go into production straight away (need to check on the black Utah).

6 People for an all Black Halway you say.. 🤔.

Sounds to me like I need to return to my usual politicking ways of shaking hands, hugging old ladies, and kissing babies.

well, at least it's not the 12 AM GMTO, then you need to wipe the floor, bring in hot lunch...

Good point 👍🏻.

So, you all heard the man. We need 5 more willing participants to engage in the production of 6 finely crafted boots.

Ridgeway sole (if that's available or an option @Notch). We can even do a half and half leather (if that's available or am option @Notch).

Obviously I need an ad right? In order to sway your vote.
So how's this one...

Halway built just like his cousin the Galway. Has the same leather as his cousin. What he doesn't have is a $1000 in from of his name.

Vote Black Utah Halway for 2021 usage ✌🏻. You'd be the happier person for it ✌🏻.

Count me as interested. I sure wouldn't mind to get the chelsea GMTO first, though. Tom, any update on those?

If there is not much contrast I could be in. Dark brown palette would be my way to go ( Mink suede for the shaft?).
