Ok, thank you for the answer.

Have a nice day.

I actually asked them this before (sent them that exact picture), and the answer is no. Sorry.

Too bad. Do they offer any balmoral boots at all? Their web site only displays a handful of models - is there any web link that you know of that shows a broader range?

I do love these Chukkas though - particular props to the braided laces:

Yes, they have a few very nice Balmoral Boots. We will stock at least one for the coming fall/winter season. Here are a few examples of Bonafe Balmorals:

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 90


The only problem with Bonafé from my point of view is that they have sooooooo many nice models but there are few samples or even pictures of them. I'm going to Bologna in May to order our fall/winter season stock, I'll take as many pictures as I can of all the samples.

Got the Carmina Cognac Cordovan boots from the mail last night. Thanks Patrik and Gabriel on the sizing advices. Apologies to the poor quality pictures but I can assure that these boots are excellent.

I have been very intrigued by Bonafe but have run up against this problem - seems impossible to find more than a few limited pics. Too bad. Those bal boots are beautiful.

They have the shoemaking thing down, but need to work on promotion. Teaming up with the likes of Skoaktiebolaget is a step in the right direction. If you do a web search for Bonafe shoe pics you won't get many, but most of the decent ones are by Skoak.
