    I'm always confused why Japan hasn't started making larger sizes. It seems like the demand is clearly there.

    Have a look at these treats! By a company called GM in Japan. They are certainly different and very much out there, I would be on them in a flash!

    Seriously cool! Might be a little too out there for me, but I would love to see someone pull them off! Sort of like the Ortensia John Lofgrens.

    ^^^ Love those!!!!
    I had a pair in that dark green back in the early 90's.
    Double prong buckles are a nice touch too.

    Great looking boots. I have a pair of Tricker's Stows in that colour, so they don't scare me.

    I would love to have those but again its not in our size. There are at least 5 of us; you, Jimmer, myself and others who are size 13 and out of the market for a lot of brands. I was going to try and order Mr Freedom but ? is the email working now. Of course all I do is whine about it but that does help.

    The weird thing is that Mr. F is even a US brand.

    Yeah and I thought they were going to make a size 13 if three would order but I cant get an answer. I had a response about three years ago on .mil email but not using that now and not getting through anymore.

    That's strange. That's some extremely unresponsive customer service.

    I was afraid they were going out of business. If that is not the case I will try again. Thank you.
