    I Ike all three of your lasts so I’m flexible there (though partial to your soft chisel). You thinking about doing this on the almond last?

    @whovertw : Thanks! Yes, you are correct, I should post on the Jeeves thread and let people know it transitioned to this thread. Thank you for pointing that out.

    I do plan to restock these actually, it's been our best seller so far. What size are you looking for?

    Is there anyone here who is looking for a size, that sold out? I.e. the smaller or larger sizes?

    Thank you! Yes, I hope the dropbox will be used more and more in the future.

    Great! I'm looking forward to that. Especially interested in a three eyelet Derby
    like my Ludwig Reiters in the old American last.[/QUOTE]

    Our first prototype last was a very round last, similar to EG 202 for example. I thought it was beautiful, but not a good overall last, only suitable for certains styles. So the last has been developed, however we do not have anything in the pipeline for it. Cashflow is important, and large inventory is a real killer. Putting another last into rotation means investing in lasts, perhaps a few pattern changes, and production.

    I can offer this as an extra service, installed by a local cobbler, at the same cost he charges me (I should have to check on that). Unfortunately, the factory is not set up for this. If you purchase a pair of shoes from the website, just send me a PM, email or leave a note with your order specifying you would like to have toe taps installed.

    Either Soft Chisel or Almond Last will work for the Wholecut Chelsea. I would need to sample the Elegant Round last, but I dont think it would work well with the Chelsea Boot pattern.

    Just realised I should really start to use multi-quote :facepalm:

    I'm thinking a 10.5 UK would fit well. I don't have much to compare to though most 10.5 UK shoes usually fit if the last isn't too narrow.

    Tom, it's different lasts?

    I really want those boots,

    only not cordovan,
    dark brown calf or snuff suede.
    How do you like this idea for GMTO on "prototype last was a very round last, similar to EG 202" ?
    Is a timeless classic, a must-have for the brand Sons of Henrey.

    @JRas : Thank you for your interest, I will reach out seperately in PM.

    @Vadim T :The boots and the shoes in the first picture are made on the same last, the Elegant Round. The boot has a split welt, and a slightly longer toecap. This changes a bit the perception. I agree those boots look very good. I wouldn't want to make a direct Alden copy, but can see something similar being done. Do you know more people on the forum that might be interested?

    Noted, thanks! I will reach out seperately in PM.

    Unfortunately, I do not know anyone on the forum.
    But I can say with confidence that short 6-eye boots in the main collection, there is no one popular manufacturer of GY-shoes. The product niche for this model is not occupied.
    Friends, sorry for my English, who is interested in this model for GMTO?
