i was hoping it woudnt be taken that way. I'm sorry and by no means wanted to "rip off" your hard work. My goal wasnt to make a profit but simply to try and do my best to fill a demand that has been in long standing around these parts. i have a good rep, I don't rip other folks's work off, and I've been a member in good standing here for quite some time. again, I just wanted to do something for our community. As such, I'm glad to see you stepping up to plate as you've already done this once and it beats the hell outta me trying to re-invent the wheel with nothing to go on but a pair of your last run. I've talked with bootmakers all over the portland/vancouver area over the last two weeks and have had no luck finding anyone who could do them and keep the price semi-affordable. I certainly hope that you havent taken offense and if so, I apologize, I can only stress it so much, that i had no need to try and pick up this project as I have a pair of my own, I've just gotten alot from this community and saw an opportunity where i could try and give back. cheers!
