No We will ask for a Nike T90 which Figo once wore by G&G.

Sure, not a problem if it could not be done.  Was hoping it could be done as a wholecut as I find the seamless back very attractive.  I am willing to pay an upcharge for that design.

^^ Regardless of their reply, it's fun to see such a surge for Bonafè. The last few weeks our stock has dwindled extremely fast. We're so grateful. They have been renowned in Japan for years, available at both Beams and Isetan (people actually brought their babies to be photographed with Enzo himself during the last trunk show, crazy stuff) but it's great to see that the introduction to the English speaking world (and Swedish:) ) has gone so much better than we expected (hoped for, sure, but still unexpected).

  • Bonafé Balmoral Boot in Black Calf/Grey Suede. September

Which lasts and soles for those two, and what shade of cognac for the u-wing boot?

Great lineup!

I think this is great, the shoes deserve it as great as they are, and you deserve it for taking a bit of a chance introducing a relatively (for Europeans and the states) unknown brand for a larger crowd.

Will the Carmina balmoral boot brown calf and brown grain upper make a return? If so, any details on timing?

If a boot is on the Soller last, I believe Alex wears a half size smaller than Oscar last.

I'm an 8D with a high instep. I love the Oscar last in 7.5UK. Should I go 7UK for a Chelsea boot on Soller or 6.5UK?

I ask because another member said he went with normal sizing for the Chelsea and it felt loose.

I do size down half a size in the Soller last, but my sizing chart does not constitute any general recommendations. UK7 should however be a good fit in your case.

It'll be back in stock by September.

Alex,

Sorry if I'm being confusing, but your sizing recommendation is independent of any consideration for the Chelsea boot?

You don't size differently for the Chelsea based on the elastic? I don't even mean the last, just the boot style in this case.

Thanks! Your sizing posts are really comprehensive.
