With AE I prefer the 7 or 8 lasts which have a tapered, but not chiseled toebox.

All of your other points are valid with the Enzo Bonafe shoes though.


Ok.  Very well then.

 

So, you enjoy the more classic, rounded toe look?

 

I agree, both those CJ lasts have a great profile.

 

Have you tried Carmina Inca?

 

It is very shapely, rounded, beautiful and proportionate.

 

Also, the Enzo Bonafe 804 is soo nice as well.

 

Thanks.

Beautiful shoes!! I REALLY wish you were an 11 EEE instead of 10.5 so I could be in line to buy some of your overflow.

My most worn cordovan pair, AE Dundee. Really love the way these have aged.

Self serving PSA. I will be listing this pair of Florsheim shell plain toe bluchers, size 10.5 C on Ebay in the near future. PM me if interested. I also wanted to share the picture as they are just stellar and I really wish they fit me or they would be mine forever.

MTO Rider Boot Co Fleming in Mahogany Shell. Adding more examples of Mahogany Shell because every photo I see seems to make the shell look completely different.

Limited Opportunity to join current MTO for the iconic LINDRICK Boot.

This MTO is days away from going into production. There was a last minute pull out.  First come first serve.  

 

Here are the specs:

 

Crockett and Jones

325 Last

Dark Brown Shell Cordovan (color may be darker than photo above, as there are variations in C&J's / Horween's brown shell)

Double Leather Sole

Storm Welt

Dark Antique Sole Edging

All Eyelets

Price: 583.36 GBP + 30 GBP for US shipping.  The total including shipping comes to approximately $800 with the current favorable exchange rate.  This is a bargain for a boot that would sell for $1000+ if it was being sold here in the USA.

 

Please PM me if you want to join.
