2102. I got these last week just in time to wear for an important meeting. They are extraordinary. First but definitely not last pair of Bonafes.

So, your saying the EB is a better choice.
Hopefully it's not too late to send money.

Congratulation, you must have some seriously high instep. I would really like that last for whole-cut Chelsea boot but I am not sure that instep would work for me.

Thanks. My instep is on the higher end - not sure about the seriously part.

Well I have high instep too and I could not fit in 2102. Apparently Skoaktiebolaget is discontinuing 2102 last because customers were having problems with instep.

It would be awesome if Bonafe could modify that last to suit a low to moderate instep. According to Patrik they have about 5000 last styles smile.gif so I'm sure there's something similar in the repertoire

Great looking pair of shoes. How would you rate them when compared to C&J, Vass, EG, or G&G?

Interesting... Feel fortunate they worked as I ordered blind on fit.

Leaves, any chance you're going to restock some Carmina business basics with Tomir or Dainite soles? I checked the expected arrivals list and didn't see them. I was thinking about the now-arrived rainy season and their potential usefulness.

But mercedes are overpriced pieced of shit and Hyundai - genesis sedan and Equus- are priced tens of thousands less and great values.

I think bonafes and Aldens are far more value laden than mercedes. Is that your point?
