For the Enzo Bonafe MTO, deciding between these 2 shoes in Dark Brown Museum Calf. Shoes are on 2 different lasts. Second shoe is the black shoe on the right.

I have the bonafe adelaide in museum calf sans toe medallion.  It is a fantastic shoe.  Amazingly comfortable.  I highly recommend it.

Apologies for the poor quality. I can try and post some more pics when I get home if you need.

With all the talk of the cognac cordovan U-wing balmoral, those who wear 10UK in Rain and want a pair should take a look in the Marketplace. (Not my sale, just alerting potentially interested buyers.)

3 in for suede.  I'm more than okay with reddish brown and don't want anything too light, so I think between the three of us, we can come to agreement on colour.

@Ironist


What do you gents think?

What about broguing on just the U-wing (not the adelaide-ish part) in something similar to mink suede (if Carmina has or could get it)?

Seems like color is going to be a bigger issue rather than broguing, is there a photo of carmina suede swatches we can refer to?

I could go for the brogueing on just the U, but not for mink suede, which unless I'm mistaken is dark brown.

Okay, I have NO IDEA IF THE PHOTO BELOW IS FOR CARMINA SUEDE But it did come up in a Google image search for 'Carmina suede colors'.

 

In any event, for the purpose of discussion, when I say I am open to a medium brown or reddish brown but NOT light tan or dark brown, I mean NO to 1,2 and 6 but YES to 3,4, or 5

5. Bonafe Hidro Jasper --> EG Mink suede

4. Bonafe Hidro Tabacco --> Between EG Mink and Coffee suede

3. Bonafe Hidro Volpe --> EG Coffee suede

2. Bonafe Hidro Walnut --> EG Nutmeg suede

1. Bonafe Hidro Sella --> EG Nutmeg suede but the Bonafe suede is more towards beige)

 

Hopes this small guide helps!

 

:D I was using the same photo and the above list when I suggested EG mink

Well we're both okay with #5 then - but it depends on whether Carmina has a close match to that shade - any darker and I'd pass.  I have the boot below - do not want to replicate:

In fact, if we don't get the minimum for a suede option quickly I'll just take advantage of the Bonafe MTO special and go that route to scratch my suede boot itch.
