We have no plans to stock it, but of course, if six people show interest we're happy to do it for you.

I'm an American single-E and wear G&G F width FWIW. So if this takes off, it could be the MTO you are looking for...

F width or even G width

 

1. Hove, Oak Hatch Grain, DG70/GG06, double leather sole

 

 

2. Oakham, Vintage Cherry body with Burgundy Highland Grain cover, medallion, TG73, single leather sole

 

I changed my proposal of the Hove to be in DG70 or GG06 coz I feel a smart round toe is in better look with the vertical stitch

Anybody else got his pair? Want to know opinion, cause having troubles to express mine. I would say Carmina did their job on 3+ from 5 possible and that's why:

First impression was good. Really love the leather on the vamps and toes, the color, the welt.
The fur is strange, my teddy bear 40 years ago had the same. Better than on Gallways, much worse than on Santonis. Hope it's warm.

Then noticed the tough shafts. No, the appearance is good, i would say reminds me llama leather, but only till you touch it.
Being soft on the vamp and toes, the leather on the shafts feels like plastic. 
I wonder why the leather there is different, was that the idea?
Is this the result of those problems with the grained leather supply? Let's see how it will age, can't wear it for another 4-5 months.

Fit is strange, definitely my size, good width, but a lot of space above the foot in the vamp plus unexpectedly low instep.
Look on the pics below, I got he NST boots on the Soller in the same size, and nothing similar. Don't believe this is because of suede on NST.

Anyway, these are good winter boots, not as warm or refined as my winter Santonis, but less expensive anyway.

Grained leather on Brekons (left) and Carminas



Fit (Click to show)
Spacey vamps



These folds on the instep remaining doesn't matter do I stay or sit.



Compare with NST boots on the Soller.


Sdolina, have you been wearing these at all. I ma surprised how stiff they are I think I am in a long break in period with these if they break in at all.

Anybody want to commission a Bonafe austerity brogue on the smart round 804 or the 946? I'd be open to black or some sort of brown.

Also, I really wanted to do an adelaide model in some sort of lighter brown shade, on the chisel toe 946 last or soft chisel 2102 in a style similar to the G&G St. James.

Burgundy austerity brogue (for ideas)



Adelaide styles (Auberacy and bonafe MTO)

Hey man we already talked about this I am interested in very light shade what Enzo Bonafe calls Vitello Elise. I would be interested in making this in Blake stitching for ultimate summer shoes.
post #3566 of 23683
Too light to wear this year though. I wanted something more mid-range

I thought Enzo Bonafe were hand welted? Or do they also offer machine stitching?

Personally I prefer to get the Hove although...

 

1. Hove, Oak Hatch Grain, DG70/GG06, double leather sole

 

 

2. Oakham, Vintage Cherry body with Burgundy Highland Grain cover, medallion, TG73, single leather sole
