Very nice! Great selection, Leaves.

That's an impressive set of new additions for sure.

Epic! Black soles are great. Pricing is really affordable as well.

This is probably why Leaves find the G&G hatch grain looking so different from Carminas.
That's interesting, can you tell me what you learned?

I see. Well you get what you paid for. I was very disappointed with both AS and Pediwear. Pediwear did not believe me and claimed that this was very unlikely to happen as the shoes would have been inspected first at the factory and then by Pediwear before the shipment. This clearly did not happen. I am putting my hatch grain purchases on hold for the time being. Right now I am interested more in pin grain or alpine grain colors.

Hi,

 

I was just wondering when the Enzo Bonafé Chukkas will arrive?

 

 

Thanks in advance!

Looking forward to the Bonafe fitting guide.  Every one of those shoes is very appealing.

Please e-mail us at sales@skoab.se and we'll make sure to send you some sample pics of cognac colored leathers. Bonafé has some really nice choices (and many) when it comes to picking the color.

Thanks for all the positive feedback, really appreciate it guys. I think a good fitting guide would help propel the brand here on SF, IMO Bonafé has huge potential.

These were unfortunately delayed (or led astray rather) by UPS and arrived only this afternoon, I will try to post pictures of these during Tuesday or Wednesday.

If a MTO on this come's to reality I'm interested as well.

I cant wait to hear the sizing information. I have no knowledge of Bonafe but it looks aesthetically pleasing and the price is between Carmina and GG. Kind of reminds me of AS. I have one pair of AS and I love those boots. I cant wait to hear peoples experience with these shoes.

Problem is that timing is awful now, too many expenses (and I just picked up that Carmina MTO). :( So, I'm not able to participate right now, maybe next month but then my Galway MTO arrives. Gah.

Enzo Bonafé fitting guide

As promised, here is a short fitting guide for Enzo Bonafé, I hope this helps. Of course, you can always e-mail us for further fitting advise at sales@skoab.se.

Enzo Bonafé 363 last (round classic last)
This last fits similar to Carmina Forest although it has a higher instep and a tighter toebox. A high instep would be ideal for a good fit.
General recommendation: Stick to the same size as Carmina Forest but keep in mind that the instep is high.

Enzo Bonafé 2102 last (soft square last)
This last fits similar to Carmina Rain. It has a generous instep and the toebox is roomier than on the 363.
General recommendation: Stick to the same size as Carmina Rain.

Enzo Bonafé 946 last (chiseled last)
This last fits very similar to Carmina Rain in almost every regard. Just like the Carmina Rain, it is a generous last.
General recommendation: Stick to the same size as Carmina Rain.

For reference, this is what me and my store manager wears:

Carmina Rain: UK 11
Carmina Forest: UK 11.5
Carmina Simpson: UK 11.5
