7-12, but only "ones" of some sizes,  and a lot of people have already completed the  form.  But many people complete the form and then don't buy, so where we will end up is a complete mystery.  I have agreed with Kurt that I can order more as soon as I know where we are and what real demand is....

these are going to be great for year round use.

just trying to see if I'm going to do a 8.5 like i do in redwings as i think an 8 would be too small & 9 too large . . .

Me too.....Kurt was super apologetic about the delay, I said it did matter in the least as long as he finished my fixie on time, when I was with him in Tokyo.......

do they use a bonwelt on these?  the shoe reminds me of the RedWing Forman shoe, but this steerhide is just a sexy looking piece of leather & better than anything i've seen redwing use for their shoe.

i can not wait to get my pair, now to figure if 8.5 will work for me. . . .

From the images of WandA  pre-assembled I'm not so sure. I'm luck enough where it has never been an issue for any of my shoes/boots (aty least that i know of).
