Beautiful shoes, may I ask what the makeups are?

Thank you! The NST is EB 2475MOD in Inca 6120 on the 363MOD last. On Dainite sole and with 360deg chained norvegese stitched welt. The lazyman oxford is EB 3937 in Vitello Etrusco on the 804 last. 270deg handwelted on single leather sole.

Very cool materials!

@Leaves

Have you considered collaborating with EB on a new last design?

I feel something like the 804 but shorter toe box and slight chisel would be a winner.

The almond shape of the 100556 is also beautiful, but I've only seen one makeup on this last.

Some folks might find the following comparison shots of 3 different EB lasts useful.  A derby in last 363MOD size 7UK, a lazyman oxford in last 804 in size 7UK and a monk strap in last 946 size 7.5UK.

 

I also tried to capture the instep but Im not really sure if I was able to capture them properly.

 

 

 

 

 

May I also add that EB is an awesome shoemaker, and Skoak is tops as a retailer.

I do t think we'd need a new last, just find the right one. Bonafè has hundreds of lasts, some that have not been used in decades. But we will try not to add a very wide selection of lasts as it leads to a bit of confusion for the end consumer. We've already phased out o couple of them (2102b and standard 363) to make room for lasts that are easier to fit.

I agree. My apologies for voicing out my frustration in an unhealthy manner.

 

I would recommend you to consider purchase of Enzo Bonafé instead of Carmina ;).

The split toe is gorgeous. Live fit pics when you can, please.

Well we all like different things - those split toes to me look like small dinghies. On the other hand I really like the Lazyman.

Haha on point. They can give my gunboats a run for their money.

New from Skoak; EG, 606, dark oak 

Migrating to StC split toes now

Right before I asked my girlfriend (now wife) if she wanted kids, I asked her if she liked split toe shoes. I had to know who I was marrying and there are just some things in life on which you can't compromise.

or a lower instep last akin to the 888 and mh71 of the world. -)

I love the shape of Carmina's Inca last, but the instep is a bit too low for my foot. Considering EB's lasts have higher insteps, which Enzo last would be most similar to the Inca last? From what I've seen, the 804 last looks fairly similar, but I'm not entirely familiar with all of Enzo's different lasts.

post #20834 of 23841
I just realized that Skoak stopped selling Carmina inca last. Why did they stop selling inca last?
post #20835 of 23841
