Darn. The EB split toe is gorgeous, and I am already 3 shoes into the new year!

Stitching looks great on the EB, very tempted. Hopefully the racing green hatch thrope gets enough interest though

I think I missed the news. Why is Skoak not selling EG anymore?

We actually have very few returns. Shoes are great this way because when you nail your sizing on 2-3 lasts of the premium brands, it's very easy for us to recommend a size given our vast experience with fitting people both in store and online.

Completely true!! If they can get a good idea for me when I have the craziest foot size here and even make the first trial of my custom lasts very close to fit, they can nail it down for anyone.

The guys at Skoak are amazing and have great service too.

@Leaves, I seem to spy that there is some burnishing on this number. Is this applied by the Bonafe side, or did you guys do that?

 

I don't seem to see that this is the default finishing from Enzo.

Thanks! Reverse looks so much better to me

I'm not a split toe guy, but I'll be honest, the EB split toe looks very well done. Kudos to them.
If not for the fact that I've already got 8 gmtos with EB under way I might have just grabbed them.

Similar situation. New unworn shoes, 3 pairs this year. And I am lusting after this even though I have the Carmina and EG split-toes. Ah!!!!

Cross-post from Bonafe thread:

These were both MTO through Skoaktiebolaget a while back. The spectators were my own design. I was very happy with the shoes and the customer service was excellent. Buying shoes without trying them on is difficult but Skoaktiebolaget takes out a lot of the guess work.

How does the 804 fit compared to the 363 mod?  did you have to order different sizes?  Also, nice chairs and table.
