Enjoy! Glad you found us through Justin.

How much is the price increase?

The patinas like Coimbra (very dark brown) and Guimaraes (dark Chestnut) will be very subtle and versatile choices.

On the patina page, it only shows the chukka 7991 last from the drop down box to be selected with a patina. So I can configure the chukka 160 last with a patina? Thanks

The 7991 is the model number for that chukka. If you look in the details text on the page, that chukka is made on the 160 last.

Excellent. Do you mind sharing photos of the shoes after a few wears? Thanks.

It does, thank you very much. CS lasts looks to be roomy.

I'm glad it helps you out. The helpful staff at SkoAB underscored this as well. They're roomier than your average shoe. Although sizing down 1/2, I didn't feel that the length was compromised.

Just a preliminary try-on while at work! Will give my thoughts later.

A touch concerned that I may want to size down a half a size.

On the other hand, the G&G are unbelievable. I think they have actually improved over the last four to five years.

Would you say the CS lasts could fit a wide foot in their usual size? I'm a US E, UK F, whatever measurement you want to use for "one width bigger than normal."

You asked for it, and we deliver. Enzo Bonafé's brand new style #3964 - a reverse Split Toe Derby. Pre-order is now live and will close February 26 (before the price increase).

Pre-order by following this link.
  • Style 3964 - Reverse Split Toe
  • 363 MOD last as pictured - please e-mail us for fitting advice
  • Bolet Calf (as pictured)
  • Single leather sole
  • Total price ex VAT: 4640 SEK * US price: $550
  • Deposit: 25% deposit, 75% before delivery

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



The reason this style is slightly more expensive then regular shoes is the extra hand work involved in making the reverse split toe.

What's the expected delivery date?
