So this: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

in boot form,
with a flat (hand) welt,
on the 804 last,
preferably just the apron toe without the split raised stitch at the toe.

In any full grain calf (smooth, lama, grain in order of preference) in meleze/dark-ish brown or even brown shell,
with any sole,
reverse or flat hand-welt (not norvegese or bentivegna)

currently it's @laufer
and me
(I remember you or @GabrielOB
mentioning that bonafe has a lot of unlisted styles so you need to check with them before confirming, so before we try getting one more person to join we wanted to confirm if an apron toe boot is even possible

This is the closest they got:
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 90


A new pattern will incur a one time surcharge of 4000 SEk ex VAT.

I love the grain wingtips, sort of halfway b/w a LWB & SWB!

Maybe a stupid question..

How does the veg tan natural grain leather react to shoe care? I dont think it is unfinished like crust leather right?

As I've got a pair of G&G Burnhams winging their way to Sydney as we speak, that just sent a chill down my spine...

I feel for you my Aussies friends but I can understand authorities vigilance to protect Australia's flora and fauna.
It really stinks though.

Awesome price for the crocodile. And I really like the grande wing tip too. Unfortunately not my size.

Crocodile boots, let alone shoes, for under $1k? Not sure how you guys made that happen, but I'm really wishing I had a grand burning a hole in my pocket!
