We have enough interest to make this happen! If you want to join, let me know via PM or posting here.



I want to confirm that the make is exactly like the photo right?

Just wondering this will be my first EB. I wear carmina Inca last size 8.5, what would my size be?

HI there.
Sure. The bunch of us aren't in a rush to place the order yet. And at this time haven't confirmed our choice of uppers as shark but are considering it. I will pm you when we are about to place our order.

Most people say 946 fits like rain
Which in turn fits like Inca.so theoretically you can take the same size
However, for me, I find I can go half a size down to uk8 for 946
At the same time however, I also feel uk8.25 is a better fit for me, for Inca and rain
I have rather shifty feet

Sounds like my size. Is the 946 last long elongated look?

That's the plan: just like the shoe pictured. Based on my experience (804 last), I'll be going down a half size from my typical Rain size. I have narrow feet with low insteps.

Hey there,

The 946 is not elongated by any means, compared a last like say .... C&Js 348 last, that is very very elongated.

It's a square toe with soft chisel.

Very much proportionate.

So you guys are saying for 946 last go down to 8UK from normal 8.5Uk which I normally take. Is this towards suede or calf also? I have only gone to 8UK on carmina chukka suede

I did it for the Bonafe 946.  Consider the width you need normally along with overall size.
