Thanks for the feedback, I'm really glad you liked them!
The 946 chiseled last fits very close to Carmina Forest, but it has a slightly snugger toe box (the Forest has a generous toe box IMO). I also find Bonafé to be extremely comfortable.
We actually have a wholecut coming in September from Bonafé, but without the toe medallion. But MTOs are only 15% extra from Bonafé, sooooo...
This is a complete list of the new models that we are stocking in September:
- Enzo Bonafé Full Brogue on 363 round classic last, Antique Brown Calf, sizes UK 7-11.5
- Enzo Bonafé Semi Brogue on 2102 soft chiseled last, Antique Burgundy Calf, sizes UK 7-11.5
- Enzo Bonafé Wholecut on 946 chiseled last, Antique Brown Calf, natural sole edge, sizes UK 7-11.5
- Enzo Bonafé Chukka on 946 chiseled last, Tobacco Suede, sizes UK 7-11.5
We will also restock a split toe Norvegese derby shoe, but are doing some modifications to the last before we put it into production.
Any pics of those bad boys? Really great chukkas, and I dunno what it is about the Norvegese boots, but I really like them.
