Edit : this is actually a Delos' adelaide which the MTO will be based on using Bonafe's chiselled last

 

 

 

 

 i would prefer the second swatch shown by Patrick; this colour above is just not something I would want in my shoe rotation. Black soles, chiseled last with burnishing = winner

Ok, I'll go with the flow.  Anyways, here's what Bonafe's chiselled last looks like as taken from Skoak's website :

I'll ask Bonafé if they have a model similar to the one shown above and we'll take it from there. I'll get back as soon as I know more.

i was interested in the same thing J.L. I would love to see Carmina use a similar medalion to the Plaza last. after all, plaza and rain are fairly similar

@Namor

 

Were you thinking of pinking on the wing, or leaving the edge of the wing smooth like on the U-wing brogue. I'm in favor of no pinking to keep it more like the U-wing brogue with the medallion you photoshopped.

pinking?

The zig-zag edge that's on the wingtip shell brogue, not sure if pinking is the official name, but it looks like little jagged teeth. Since it's gonna be a U-wing boot, was hoping to keep it clean, and not have the zig-zag edge if possible.

you bring up a good point. lets see what Patrik has to say. i would prefer to have fine pinking but i dont know if that is an option. eg has pinking

post #810 of 3553
So are folks trying to organize MTOs for both a U-cap and a shortwing blucher boot on Rain in dark cognac with dainite and a blind eyelet/speedhook combo? Or are they the same?

Of the details that came up in response to NAMOR's post, I'd prefer the standard Rain medallion and no pinking. But feel free to ignore me, since I still can't decide whether I can live with dainite.
