    One great thing about the GMTO HMs is they were paid last year (like the eventually coming natty Stirlings). I have not come close to a shoe/boot order in 2018.

    Beware: Weasel rationalizing purchases above...

    They are pretty unwilling to do past models and clearance items anymore. And have refused me on unlined shell more than once. Still, a black shell Dalton could gain traction even within current rules.

    OK... Ready for my shipping notice. I haven't hit refresh on my inbox a dozen times today. Nope, not me. Nope, these pictures definitely didn't make me more anxious to receive them. Nope. Definitely not.

    Agree with your impatience. And I expected to wait until mid Feb since things were backed up but the moment this morning I saw this...I am drooling.

    Mine were made with a flat welt; I have 3 other brown shell AE boots with storm welt, so it was worth asking. Possibly their kindness was in consideration that I had bought a few brown shell boots before.

    Haven't received my GMTO shell HM's yet, but I have the brown and the natural (could not resist when they went on sale for $209 at Nordstrom, and boy am I glad I didn't -- they're fantastic.) The natural seems to have a little more room. Both are CXL. Might be the lacing, or maybe fit just varies a little from shoe to shoe. Will let everyone know how the GMTO HM's fit in comparison to the other two.

    Ha, I'm just having fun. I swear, I'm a real adult capable of waiting patiently.
    I'll be really interested in seeing your boots with the tweaked makeup. Should be good!

    In a last minute change of heart, I placed my order to have the translucent lug. I'm crossing my fingers that it works out well. After seeing the photos above and how great it looks, I'm a little nervous.

    Same here! I also ordered translucent lug. Asked for a shell tongue, too, but not sure if they'll do that. I have been having second thoughts about declining the Danite sole too but I'm sure the lugs will look great -- AE never disappoints.
