This is a fantastic makeup that got even more fantastic with free toe taps.

I would like a JR sole but I can add my own topy locally so it isnt a deal killer for me.

Shall we pull the trigger now?

:)
Do we need to move to a private chat or do you have what you need for now?

just spoke to Emil - he would prefer people to choose between either JR or Italian + topy, to keep all the pricing the same. Toe taps are inclusive for no additional.
FWIW my understanding is Emil’s Italian sole is pretty dang good plus if you’re going to topy it there’s really no need to do the JR.

Do you think it's pointless to pay the upcharge for JR then?

If I were adding a topy? Yes. I get JR or Bakers because they theoretically wear harder and last longer. If I’m adding a topy why do I care since the thing that’s wearing is the topy not the sole and I’ll replace it when I need to.

Also it sounds like it isn’t an option on this one anyways since he wants flat pricing for everyone’s orders. Two options: Italian and topy (and taps if you want) or JR (with topy not being an option but free taps if you want)

Sorry ,should have clarified that I'm planning on no topy, but was curious if the Italian sole would wear almost if not just as hard as JR

That I’m unsure of. My understanding is his Italian stuff is plenty good (maybe @BColl_Has_Too_Many_Shoes or @boot_owl or someone who has experience with Winson’s stuff can confirm) but if I had the option to upgrade (particularly in this case when there’s no upcharge) I would if I wasn’t going to topy it just to be extra safe.

I was more confused by the guys who wanted to throw a topy on a JR sole for some reason since the sole theoretically isn’t going to see the wear the rubber is. My only commissions from Winson are loafers which I’m not going to topy so JR and taps are how I went.

I’ve gotten JR on all my leather soles from Winson so cant comment unfortunately. I doubt it would be as good given JR has been specifically tanned as a soling leather though

@bsarosi @deez shoes @Zapasman @jischwar @acapaca @WhyUEarly @Ranjeev @GeoffreyB @boot_owl and others (all welcome)

Many thanks of your patience and generous input - order form attached. I think I got it all but let me know if that is not the case?

The site won't let me upload an excel and I can't figure out how to do this as Google sheet without severely compromising everyone's cybersecurity - @LA Guy is there a work around to this please?

I have sent the original excel to Emil just now too - his email is [email protected].

PM me with your email address if you would like me to email you a copy directly.

Emil gets a lot of emails, so he has requested that you please write "Annonay Pin Grain Thunder Boots GMTO Sizing" on the header.

For sizing, if some participants need to discuss with Emil, they can email individually.

Let me know if you want to chat/ PM / set up a private chat.

Go get those Thunderboots guys!

Thank you too @Zapasman - I will keep trying to post the Excel here but Emil has the file with the spec so it may be redundant.

PM me if you want me to email it to you directly and enjoy your break,
