Love the blue chukkas, Thunder, thanks for posting.

Special Thanks to @Leaves and @Skoaktiebolaget for going the extra mile all the time.

 

They make ordering shoes from anywhere else hard to do.

 

Such a CustomerCentric shop that its almost too good to be true...and yet it is true.

 

Color 4 Balmoral Boot coming my way in a few months.

 

This is beyond grail for me.

Great choices, Congrats.

 

The Rothschild in some form or fashion has been on my list for awhile now, maybe one day.

Great call as always, I think that'll will probably make a good boot a great boot.

 

Congrats sir.

Here are my Bonafe MTO's from January. Vitello Bolet, Model 3200MOD on the 804 last with Dainite soles (thin mid-sole), size 9.5. Bolet is a fantastic color, and the 804 last has a wonderful, classic (sorry!) look. Sadly, they're a bit roomy, particularly the instep, which was a known risk with my low volume feet. I'll play with insoles and tongue pads. I'd like to order more Bonafe but will have to email with Gabriel about sizing.


I am not a great photographer of shoes (Click to show)

Those look great, Mr. Six. Would you say that Bolet has a red-ish undertone? In your pics it reminds me of Bonafè's Etrusco or Vass' antique cognac.
post #12883 of 23841

No red undertone. The photos came out darker than the actual color. I tried to adjust them but couldn't get the color accurate--cloudy day, office window, etc. The first spoilered photo is closer.

 

I'd say Bolet is pretty much an ideal mid-dark brown, the kind of color you imagine when you think of a brown business shoe. Consider it Bonafe's equivalent of EG DOAK or G&G Vintage Oak, though without the burnishing and perhaps a bit more yellow.

 

Also, the finishing of the leather is lovely.
