I think you guys should make a trip to NY and bring Bonafe shoes with you for trunk show so we could all get our sizing right.

I have struck out badly on nearly all Bonafe lasts you have in your inventory.

The 804 last is the most accommodating to a medium to low instep. The 946 last and the modified 363 last might also work in some cases.

EG 82, 606 8.5Uk

Carmina Forest, Uetam and Robert 8.5UK

 

8,5UK might be the answer right?

UK8.5 is most likely the best fit in the 363 last, depending on your instep of course. As the lacing is quite high up on the ankle and the tongue and facing follows the ankle, it shouldn't be a problem unless you have a particularly low instep.

Leave, please restock the u wing boot as soon as you can...

Shoot, Thorpe boot already sold out in either of my potential sizes. @Leaves, any chance there might be another mid-winter restock or is this it?? That is a great winter boot for those of us that missed out on the Zugglets.

Or is it possible to do a single boot re-order for a stock item like EG?

I am wearing a tweed suit today here in the NYC and these Thorpes would look much better than the Cigar Shell captoe Alden boots I am wearing.

Waiting to hear about the fitting on the Bonafe balmoral boot. Two pairs of boots in two days? :slayer:

Come on, DpprDr, snitches get stitches!!!

On second read, it seemed too disparaging to my Aldens. Hopefully, I haven't angered the shell Gods. But that Thorpe is ridiculously nice and was sad to miss out on it - I much prefer it to the Nevis.

Medium-high instep around the top of the ankle but quite snug around the lower part of the ankle. Sleek and slightly snug fitting vamp, and a standard wide heel. Quite similar to the 363 last in terms of fit and shape (ball to ball and heel to ball), fits like the 946 last around the instep. Roomy toe box in terms of volume.

Enzo Bonafé
946: UK 8
363: UK 8
363 MOD: UK 8
804: UK 8
2102b: UK 8

74945: UK 8

Edward Green
202: UK 8 E
82: UK 8 F
184: UK 8 E
888: UK 8 F

Had my grain boots for about two years or so with limited wears. Decided to add burnish on toe and heel and darken the grain a little bit. Here's a couple comparison photos.

The after is whole lot better.

 

 

 

How did you go about darkening the grain by the way?
