I must say these are really excellent shoes, having not handled anything even remotely close to how beautiful these things are. Thanks once again to the great folks at SkoaB, and Gabriel in particular. 



There is a problem though, I can't bear to wear them.



 





 



Those are absolutely stunning - congrats!

Haha, nice one. But I think I will eventually put them on.

Thanks.

Hallelujah!!

These weren't from skoak, but someone on reddit posted a review of his EG Dovers in dark oak on the E606 last:

Just got a pair of the ST James II in MH71 Vintage Cherry. A bi tight around the joint ball but hopefully they loosen up a bit. I also have a TG73 Sinatra. Both great styles. Not sure which last I like more though smile.gif

Gentlemen,

Got my EB's today and am nearly speechless regarding the overall quality.

Fit is very good.

Aethsetic is incredible, my wife said: "Wow, they make it look like you DONT have wide feet...." nod[1].gif

More pics and what have you to come soon.

Thanks a million Skoak.

@Leaves do you think "mid brown with slight burnishing" is an accurate description of Carmina's vegano brown? Been looking at a bunch of pictures and sometimes I see burnishing and sometimes I don't...

hi guys, I'm wondering if the Bonafe 946 last is already a wide fitting last?

I heard it is similar to Carmina rain last which is a wide fitting last.

if it is true, then I can no longer buy RTW shoes:confused: because Bonafe 946 is still a bit narrow for me, i think i need extra wide

That mountain ram leather is amazing.  Is it just super rare?
