    Lets get those pre-orders in!! It looks like there is plenty of interest in these makeups to get at least 4 per style. The sooner we get orders in the sooner we get boots back :)

    1) Yes. The details are the same as posted above, and are in the product description here:

    2) As long as you change the sizing before we send in the order, there will be no fee. We would probably not be able to change the sizing after the order has been submitted.


    The official cut off was 10 days from yesterday, so, August 30. However, since that is a Friday, we will possibly wait until Monday to send in our order.

    Black service boot ordered after getting advice from Morgan after sending in foot tracings (I advise everyone do this!).

    Can't wait to receive!

    Nice!

    Did you trace it yourself or have someone else do it for you?

    Traced myself. Just put on a pair of socks, sit down with your foot on the page, lean forward and keep the pen straight as possible.

    Then draw lines between length and width, measure.

    Morgan found my left foot is 10.5, my right 10. Which is why I'm selling my 9.5s :(

    I did this myself also and I measured a size 9 which is honestly not possible since i wear 8D in Alden Barrie/Trubalance, 7.5-8 in Red Wing and 7.5-8 in Trickers. Guess I did something wrong with the tracing...

    Slab, you mean you measured a 9 in Viberg? When I said I measure a 10.5 and 10, that was Morgan's advice concerning Viberg sizing in relation to my tracing.

    If that's what you mean, then you must've been leaning the pen outwards a bit, very easy to do.

    But if you mean you measured a US 9, that makes sense in relation to a Trubalance and Trickers 8.

    hopefully this helps someone ... carson from 4H - "We recommend that you go with your same size in the 2030 last that you would for alden barrie and trubalance, but keep in mind that the 2030 will be a bit narrower than those lasts."

    obviously everyone's fit is different but if you are normally a good fit in alden barrie/trubalance, its safe to go the same size

    Which Tricker's last were you on? I would suggest that you get either the same size, or 1/2 size up, depending on whether you want a snug or less snug fit, as your size on the Trickers 4497 last.

    Alright - we've got a few orders in, but not quite enough to make any of the boots quite yet. Remember, if you order early, and are one of the first 4 to make a boot happen, you will receive an additional small discount in your second invoice.

    Let's make these things happen.

    Cheers,

    Fok.
