    Weird, I can't find the post that I was replying to now.

    Anyway, never mind: just keep me in mind for any discounted shell MTOs in the future! Those Bayfields you arranged are a delight.

    New GMTO Merlot Eagle County boots. Got them yesterday and laced them last night. I noticed the eyelets on the right boot were off just a bit. Probably nothing the average person would notice but it'll bug me some. I decided to wear them today (after a good coat of VSC and neutral
    Polish) and noticed one of the hooks is rotated in a funny position making it a bit difficult to hook the lace. At any rate I'm gonna keep them but mention the issues to Allison. This is also my first pair of AEs with a Dainite sole. Out of 30 pairs owned it's hard to believe I don't have any yet. So far I'm really liking these and think they'll be great in snow and wet surfaces.

    The Eagle County MTO that started my MTO craze. I did this back in 2013 when the ECs were available for 197. I only got this pair this week since I had it delivered to my in laws in the US and they only shipped here just recently.

    Waxy tan saddle uppers with split reverse natural welt and tan ink edge dressing. At that time they didn't have Dainite yet so I had mini lug tap soles.

    If I had to redo this pair Is go with a leather midsole to go with the split reverse welt. I didn't know I could imitate the double sole look by adding an extra layer of leather between the welt and tap sole. I was such a novice.

    Changed out the laces to flat brown laces.

    @watchidiot those are terrific and outside of the midsole which I agree...that may be one of the best EC makeups the color is great.

    I love the regular eyelet over the speed hooks. This is the one thing that drives me mad about my ECs, the laces constantly popping off the hooks!

    I'm experiencing the same with my Brown Grain EC's. Frustrating.
