Cryckee they are beautiful. What a color!

 

I am considering Bonafe's Etrusco whole cut pre order. They look very nice. I'm not very knowledgeable about such shoes.

Thank you, this is rosewood kudu, & that's a awesome color & choice as long as you like Etrusco you won't be disappointed & whole cut is solid choice. I do own Etrusco color boot & recommend them very very highly.

Kudu is a great leather and thanks for your advice.

 

Looks like the Etrusco color is sort of like caramel.

 

The Florest green Santos I just ordered also has chiseled toes. I have no experience with them so not sure about ordering another quite yet. Supposedly Bonafe's have a "high instep"? My feet do not. That might be a factor. I'm going to read Bonafe's thread.

 

I'm trying to visualize the shoes versatility with dress and casual gear. Denim?

 

Would they go with the navy and cream windowpane linen pants we both picked up?

If you are asking me which will be more versatil I would say Etrusco for sure it will go with every thing including navy cream windowpane. Santo forest green I would say grey & black I don't own them so can't say how vibrant they are in real life. But santo has some awesome looking color to choose from.

Here you go, so you don't need to do too much imagining.
This is the exact etrusco pair you were considering that SkoaB is currently doing a pre-order for.
You're more or less right about the color.
As you can see, the light colored laces and sole edge give it a pretty informal look. So it wouldn't go very well with office attire. But they're great for informal wear.

I'm not sure if this helps you but I have the boots in Florest and love the colour but they are much greener than they look in photos. I've tried to take a few photos to show this but for some reason it seems hard to capture the true colour and the true greenness. Good luck.

Love all the new EBs, particularly the classic oxford. Following up on the discussion of Etrusco calf, can anyone comment on whether it qualifies as "dark brown"? Some pictures I've seen it looks like a dark brown shoe with a little more character, in others it seems to have very reddish overtones, almost like a mid-brown/burgundy mix. Considering it as a staple brown dress shoe.. would it work like that?

Definitely more redish.

Can it be said that shoes constructed in Blake Rapid are more comfy than Goodyear Welted due to a cushioned heel area?

Would anyone be down for a loafer in that style/last in a green suede?

Hi everybody,

 

Trying to make the following GMTO happen.

 

Double leather sole
Norwegian natural stitch
Rubber topy
 
Idea is to bring it into decisively casual look

 

So, essentially we are talking this shoe

 

Enzo-Bonafe-3725-new-04_1024x1024.jpg?v=1444723187

 

on double sole and this stitch

 

http://cdn.styleforum.net/b/b9/b90402f2_LLbb.jpeg

 

Norwegian stitch unfortunately adds a lot to the price, so Skoak priced this shoe at $625

I also open to skip Norwegian and stick with double sole and topy which should be $548

 

If you are interested in this makeup please PM me.

I am going to post this in couple other forums

 

Thank you

 

David

@Leaves  Can you remind me again of the Enzo Bonafe - GMTO Width rule?

 

GMTO - 4+ same width - then can we get additional width added?  

            Or do we need 4+ in the same width and only 1 width per GMTO?
