I'll have to check and see if I screamed "Get the fuck out of here" when I opened the link for that one a few years ago.
I remember me thinking it. The 8s are kinda interesting but the pricing is not worth it to me

I really hope most people skip out on these as a clear message that price increase is too much. I actually said wtf when I opened the page.
I say this as someone who is patiently waiting for his calvados Halkett order.

I feel like this is a tricky up-sell. Look at the high tension lasted points, the heel and the toe cap, all flattened out.

Imagine spending 1450 and then having them reverse patina over time...

Maybe they're hoping to keep it a small run, if the factory is backed up. In that case better to jack up the price, no? I'd prefer a non-shell virtual MTO event anyway.

So shell is never on the table for their mto? Not even common shell like black or color 8?

So, just to be clear... what IS on the table for their MTO?
Depends on what leather they have. At the MTO events they bring swatches, sometimes they only have enough of a leather to make 2-3 pairs.
