Here's an update on our current Enzo Bonafè Horween Cordovan stock. This is our own reserved stock at the factory. Supply is running a bit low so if you wanna do a MTO before the price hike March 1 let us know.

Cordovan Mahogany: 18 shells (~ 38 square feet)
Cordovan Dark Cognac: 12 shells (~ 22 square feet)

Normally a pair of boots needs around 3.5 square feet. A little less for shoes.

Hi @Leaves, I was wondering if there was any chance of EB getting their hands on some Black cordovan in the near future?

Unlikely

+1 

I have the same problem with Carmina...

On a lighter note since we have snow since early this morning ... these just landed and ready to wear after work !

Thank you @Skoaktiebolaget as always !!!

 


As far as sizing goes take your real size, 9.5 UK (43.5 EU): Fits me perfectly; Soller last is pretty roomy all over!

Also a great way to see the Vitello Yoko and Vitello Meleze in daylight.

Great pictures. The meleze looks fantastic really.

Hmm, already got the itch for the next pair.

I am thinking either the Gable or the Cambridge... I just need one more pair to account for attrition due to re-crafting. My 8-year-old AE Fifth Avenues are on their last legs (my only dark brown semi-brogues), so leaning towards the Cambridge methinks.

Note that Cambridge is F-width. I don't think this is a good idea for your feet?

Gable is iconic, that and the St James II (which you got), would be 2 of the best GG makes IMO.

I agree. This is the beginning of an epic shoe wardrobe.

Would EB consider doing the LWB boot without the seam under the eyelet?

post #20624 of 23720

@Leaves I too am a victim of low instep, narrow heel.  I fit an 8UK Simpson and close the vamps, and I didn't size up in length.

 

 

Is this the only E width planned for EB stock right now?  

 

 

Enzo Bonafé 3725 Wholecut in Black Calf, single leather sole, 946 (narrow E-fit) last. March

I was looking at the Oak Cambridge, which appears to be E, right?

I think I am being swayed towards the Gables...
