Does thinner also means inferior?

Not necessarily. I have a very good fit on the 804, and the wear and creasing is perfectly normal so far for me. I'll see how they look in a year or two.

Here are the swatches for Enzo Bonafé "Betis" that have been finiished - previously we only had pics of the unfinished betis and it looked nothing like the finisihed product, so here goes.

What's the difference between Bettis and vitello?

@leaves Do you mean you can also get betis or E B calf leathers unfinished like carmina's vegano leather?

Thanks for posting these. They are a much better reference to have for direct comparison.

Those swatches are gonna push me finally towards a dark blue MTO.

Now just to think of a model that would be appropriate....

Hey guys, quick question. My EG galways are now incoming and USPS tracking states that they are "inbound into customs". Does this mean I have to pay a fee upon delivery? And how much longer is the wait from this point on?

If you used usps chances are very less that you would be hit with custom fees. What that means that your shoes are going through custom aka US custom is checking them out & seeing what's being delivered etc basic procedure. Wait could be one day to four but normally it's one day wait tops.

I've personally never paid a customs fee using USPS. Incoming is simply a tracking status and since it's Sunday the fact that it hasn't changed is not surprising, but then again at times the USPS tracking does not always 100% reflect the correct status., but since tomorrow is Monday I would hope for outgoing customs to appear and movement to begin again. How much longer depends mostly on where you live. I live in the Midwest and total USPS time is usually 7 to 8 days.

@Leaves In reference to the EB burgundy beauty preorder, do most people take the same size in that 946 last as Carmina's rain? Any comment on the 946's instep compared to rain? Also, is a metal toe tap an option on those? Thank you!

Greetings! I noticed that the MTO Gaziano and Girling Walkton in Rosewood Kudu and Vintage Cherry is no longer on the website - are we a go for these?
