    Here you go. This is right after the job was done about a year ago. They're still hanging in there. Of course that nice cleaned look didn't last very long. LOL! [​IMG] Haven't seen the 744s in person just pics in the catalogs which I can't scan and release til fall. I personally won't be getting a pair unless they magically show up as a lagniappe. LOL.

    Hmmm so you want a teaser? I'll be at the store in a bit, but I'm not going to guarantee anything OK?

    Yes it does, but there is something old school - traditional - about leather soles. I don't think I ever saw the older men of my neighborhood wear anything else. And they managed to get through New England winters...

    I agree. If I do this i would keep one pair untouched for this reason. The majority of my shoes are leather soled.

    As Tevye said, we must keep up tradition!

    That's why my 721s will be resoled with leather. Some things just need to not be messed with.

    I really can't release info on pretty much the entire 1K Fall line til the official launch date. Sorry but NDAs are NDAs. I can say this much though, you'll like what's coming. I'm also going to talk to Wolverine about an idea I have about those 744s. That's about all I'm going to say for now.

    It's pouring like crazy right now. Among other things I plan on doing a little rock or Turkey hunting tomorrow. The Addisons are going to get a break for a while. It's time for more fun with the 721s. If I get a chance I'll brush them down and take a quick pic before I go play in Missouri muck. Otherwise you can expect a pic of them covered in muck.

    If the pictures that were posted of the new boot are real, then the color is, well, interesting. The style is awesome though!

    I like the new toe design, but the color was pretty odd.

    I wish they would make a three eyelet chukka - on the US made 1000 mile side. The older I get the more I like chukkas! And do we know on what date they will be releasing the new line?
