St James II TG73 F-width vs Enzo Bonafe 946 3200 Mod Normal width.

These came in this week, apologies for the poor pic quality:

 

 

Very pleased with both.  The button boots are very comfortable and the the galways are a tank.  Button boots are museum calf and hidro suede.  Galway is doak and walnut CC with double leather soles.  Only wish the doak was a little lighter.  Great service from Gabriel in placing the mto's and the Galways came in pretty quickly.

Thanks for the compliments gents.  @BootSpell - I placed the order the first week in February.  They shipped out last Friday.  Arrived this morning.  I believe the quoted wait time per skoaks website is about 6 months.  So I was a little surprised these came in so quickly.  Also waiting on a Dover mto I placed about a week later so hopefully those come in soon as well.

You made my day!  At least I can hope based on the arrival of your beautiful boots.  I placed my order in the 2nd week of February.  I wasn't expecting my Galways till late June or July sometime.  Mine are hopefully shortly behind yours.  Thanks.

Don't want to rain on anybodies parade, but I think it just all depends. We placed an order for Falkirks in late October, 4 of them came in a couple of weeks ago. Mine still haven't come in yet. It's my understanding the first try didn't pass their QC.

@BootSpell  - Hopefully yours come in on the next shipment to skoak.  I had similar expectations on when they would arrive.

 

@RogerP  - Thank you sir.  Really looking forward to wearing the button boots.  Im hoping the doak will lighten to a similar shade as yours but I still love them all the same.  I consider your pair the unicorn of Doak/Walnut CC.  Your pics helped push me to that make up.

Yeah, you really did just rain on my parade.  Thanks, d*3.

Hey, my Malverns were ordered 1 Jan and I just received those last week. Besides, although the seven going on eight months are trying my patience the Falkirks will be worth the wait. From past deliveries I know the shoes will look fabulous without issues and I currently have the shoe rotation that allows me to truck on while waiting for them.
