The 804-last (used for our suede double monks) is notably lower in the instep than our other Enzo Bonafé-lasts. 

Looking forward to seeing more models on 804 last than.

As soon as I saw the preview on my subscription list I knew what that was going to say. I assumed you crossed it out and wrote "adult". I was close. LOL.

One word of caution--I think they're way too nice to see actual winter weather, the single thickness sole means that salt and slush will definitely get on the uppers!

 

After a year of weekly wear they are incredibly comfortable as well, even though the grain portion will feel a bit stiff out of the box.

 

Thanks for the quick replies, guys. I'm now really looking forward to SkoAB getting them in again so I can collect my pair.

 

ino68, unfortunately they will be used in actual winter conditions as I'm in Sweden and also rely heavily on public transportation to get around. And, you know, winter lasts a good 6-7 months here. At least they seem solid as hell, though, on top of looking great. ;)

Our latest restock from Gaziano & Girling arrived just recently. I'm afraid that we do not have any further restocks from EG and GG planned for arrival in September.

Impressive list - yet I'm missing the Carmina model 80184 Jumper Boot in antiqued grain calf, Oscar last, Commando sole. Or aren't re-stocks listed here?

This one sounds extremely interesting to me! Would you have any pictures or mock-ups...?

post #3942 of 6937

^ Also wondering about that U-wing boot. Which last? How many eyelet/hooks?

I know Leaves mentioned this one before, but what are the details?

What kind of rubber sole is this? Something thin I hope, maybe Tomir?
post #3944 of 6937

Some real good stuff on the horizon.  That Carmina U-wing cordovan boot should be a honey.  And I can't wait to see what the Bonafe baby lama looks like.

 

In present stock, I am super tempted by the Carmina burgundy pebble grain jumper.  Only thing is I know it will be rendered redundant when the cordovan frankenstitch finally arrives.  Only problem is that nobody knows when that will be - likely including Carmina themselves.

We're getting close but remember we need 6 people to complete an MTO. So put in your vote now

Looking online but I can't seem to see which is darker - mahogany or rosewood CC's? Am I correct it thinking the colors are quite similar, and that the rosewood is slightly redder than the mahogany? Sorry to be a dumsy newby.
