Just ordered from Baker's Boots. The current lead time is around 6~8 weeks.

@atm23 how do you find the combination of C461 & wedge sole? Does it feel like "walking uphill", as described by some (Kyle among them)? Is the arch support prominent?

Edit: I might have jumped into conclusions cos of the photo; it could be that you actually just ordered, and didn't receive them yet, in which case please savour my questions and report back in 6-8 weeks. 8)

@rocket Thanks! I can't wait! They're black as well.

@Crit_Obs I just ordered them so I haven't had the chance to give them a "test walk"! I will come back in a few months with a review. Then again, in a couple months its going to be summer, so they may not get much wear until the colder months.

Thank you for the build details @rio .

I'll be thinking about a similar build, and I'd like that same color and leather. I like lasts with more arch support so I'll talk to Kyle about how to go about it. Will let you know once I have an offshoot of your pair to show.
