With Bonafé we are basically learning stuff as we go along. I just learned this from Bonafé. There's no real structure or set rules with Bonafé.
Delivery time is three months so we're looking at mid-April for this one.
So, is it too late to change the width on the adelaide mto?
Can someone tell me what I'm, missing, if we were mentioned somewhere like in a magazine or TV yesterday, we had a 300% spike in visitors March 10. And it was all direct, no referrals. Weird. But good.

How come these have a Ridgeway sole instead of a Commando sole?
The Commando was a thin rubber sole stitched + glued to a leather midsole. What happened after a few wears was that the rubber got a little frayed in the toe are. Although this does not look very nice it does not affect the function of the boot and the fraying wears away quite quickly. But we put in a considerable amount of time explaining this so in the end we decided for a full heavy duty rubber sole like the Ridgeway. So the reason is purely pragmatic.
