    3) STRAND
    -BOURBON CALF
    -NO MEDALLION
    -INDEPENDENCE LINING & INSOLE
    -DOUBLE BUTYLE LEATHER SOLE
    -AE TOPLIFT
    -CHILI WELT
    -MEDIUM BROWN TRANSPARENT EDGE DRESSING
    -WHEELED EDGING & FUDGING
    -EVERYTHING ELSE DEFAULT

    WTF?!?!!? I was told wheeled edges were not doable on any shoe that is not part of the Independence line!

    This is frustrating.

    Also, how did you size considering the Indy insole? Whats an AE top lift?

    Yeah I read that some people were told that but I figured I'd try and see and Allison didn't say anything about it. I sized the same as I normally would. AE TOPLIFT is the code for full rubber heal.

    I managed to get Wheeled edging on my Shell Strands also. It's being done on a case by case basis. It appears they will currently do it on the Strand.

    Interesting that you like the Butyl sole. Do you live somewhere particularly wet?

    My first MTO (Cappuccino MacNeil) was also different from what I requested. Interestingly, my issue was identical to [email protected]'s. I requested natural welt and natural sole edge and ended up with the natural welt and transparent brown sole edge. I did not bother returning them (it was my first MTO and I was not sure I was allowed to) and the make up actually looked quite alright, but nevertheless different from what I had been envisioning.

    While I would have also preferred the darker brown, those still look amazing. GOSH I wish I had caught the MTO on the eagle counties. Those definitely look like the EG galways at a fraction of the cost. I think we are all jealous of you haha!

    Hey Mike, I was wondering if it has been confirmed yet if the eagle counties can still be MTO. I remember you sent Mr. Grangard an email a couple weeks ago.

    Not particularly, northern NJ but I wanted something that does a little better on wetter surfaces and figured why not. I could always change the sole when that time comes.

    Quote:Ugh, damn you. I've been stalking the 2nds website looking for those. My outlet guy is pretty good about getting shoes too as long as they can get by the guy here that resells the good 2nds before we see them. Striking out lately as I saw a chili dalton on the 2nds list and now it disappeared. I'll just assume it had a huge cut in it.

    I got this from Allison: "We have also made a few changes to the program. In the past footwear was not charged until time of shipping and the options were virtually endless without an upcharge. Now the footwear will be charged at time the order is placed. The Rendenbach (JR) outsole will only be used on cordovan orders. The independence lining and insole will only be offered at the $495.00 price range. Cordovan is only available in black, burgundy and brown."

    Oh she only told me about the change when your card is charged when I spoke with her yesterday. I guess I got lucky I didn't get charged $495 for the independence lining and insole.

    I figured they'd be clamping down on this SF MTO thing sooner or later.
