We are very excited to be offering our next pre-order pattern! Put together by our friend Jesse at Guarded Goods, the plaintoe slip-on (we used to call these 'Tramps' back in the 80's) is being offered in three different builds:
A) Featuring the super comfortable Waxy Kudu upper in color Gaucho, model 'A' is built on a single leather sole, our closed channel Blake construction with a combo stacked heel and is fully leather lined.
B) A change up here, as model 'B' is being offered in Black Reverse Kudu (suede) with a Charcoal lining with all other details the same.
C) Model 'C' has caught quite a bit of attention here in the shop, and is a personal favorite of mine. With uppers of our trademark Reverso veg-tanned calf in color #750, we chose to sole this model with the long wearing Sestriere outsole, as well as a Sestriere toplift heel. Basically, this is a slip-on version of our Dundalk Boot!
D) Finally, model 'D' is being offered as a single leather sole option of model 'C'....Reverso 750 with leather sole and combo heel.
We developed this offering on the 41 last, which is simply an updated version of 42 last, where we squared the toe off slightly and is more of a slip-on version of 42. For our current customers, we suggest sizing this shoe the same as the Dundalk, the Fritz, and 1/2 smaller than the Jackson. As always, we are happy to suggest sizing based on other shoes/lasts in your closet as best as we can....please simply email either Jeff (firstname.lastname@example.org) or myself (email@example.com).
Unlike previous pre-orders, no limits on this one! All material was intentionally chosen to ensure availability. The Kudu (both Waxy and Reverse) will enter production quickly, while the Reverso leather is usually delivered around 3 or 4 weeks after ordering from Lo Stivale.
Open Order Period: Extended thru September 5th
Delivery: Expected delivery for Kudu is October 1-15 & Reverso is October 15-30.
