    It's supposed to be $550, and is part of the Spring 2013 collection. This seems to be the only retailer who has jumped the gun and selling them now. The same seller is also selling the black version on amazon for $550. I would wait until they are officially release though. You can probably get them slightly lower than the official price of $550 by then.

    I agree.

    I wouldn't pay a premium just to be first.

    Besides nothing at this point indicates it will be a limited edition of any kind.

    Unless your in a hurry I would wait.

    Thanks for the support guys.

    The Spring line won't be available for quite a while so all of these are pre-orders and yeah they can be had at a better price. That's another hint BTW. I ordered something from the Spring line up. If I remember right they're wingtips from one of the non USA lines.

    Consider ordering from an online vendor (maybe a vendor on here? :) )shipped to your door. Could work out to be cheaper even with brokerage, shipping and taxes. (No duty, made in USA)

    Wingtip has them up on their site for $495. I e-mailed them to see if they actually have them in stock. Really nice looking leather!

    Using a shoe tree at night will help minimize the uneven creasing.

    And I repeat what everyone else has said, they'll be just fine. I suggest taking them out into the woods and stomping over and through everything you say. give your boots some scars, they'll look awesome and you won't notice a wrinkly toe box.

    Im in the same boat, i ended up checking a store in Toronto lastnight, but they only had size 11 in brown, and that was too tight for me. So i sent a PM to Crane, and hopefully he gets back to me, as i cant wait to get my hands on these shoes.

    FYI RAYZ-ACE, i went to the B2 store on queen and spadina, if you still want to get them locally.

    Can someone please send me a pair of broken in tan boots? i think they look amazing, and i want to pull the trigger on a pair, but i'd love to see a photo of them after a few Obenauf's treatments.

    thanks

    See, and I like the fact that they don't have speed hooks! [​IMG]And finally a made in the US 1000 mile boot not made with Shell or Chromexcel ! Both of which I have come to dislike over the years...

    Beautiful!

    You will CERTAINLY get your money back from the credit card company. They will backcharge it and the company will be out a pair of boots and pay a significant backcharge fee. They will probably also call DHS to shut the site down, which for some reason is now the United States' anti-counterfit agency.
