Correct, no Lama Calf and Norvegese.

Correct!

For now I'll follow this one and see how the interest goes!

I figured a captoe would be slightly more versatile, but don't know if I've seen plaintoe pics for inspiration. I'll call it cap for now and see if anyone else throws a hat into the ring. Thanks for your interest icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I'm trying to get a better understanding of the aesthetics of Enzo lasts based on lasts I am familiar with, primarily Carmina and Meermin.

 

For those familiar with Carmina/Meermin lasts, which last would you say best resembles the 74945 last? Based off the pictures I have seen, it seems to visually look similar to Meermin's Olfe last, but it's hard to judge without seeing them in person.

 

For what it's worth, based off of the research I've done, the 804 last seems to resemble Carmina's Inca last.

@Leaves

any way to add top down views of your footwear?

I am interested in the EB split toe shoe, but not sure what they look like looking down at them.

Here's a top down (sort of) view of the 74945 (brown) vs the 946 (blue).
I actually feel that the 74945 and 804 look fairly similar in terms of the toe shape. But the 804 is more elongated. And the 74945 has a somewhat wider toe box.
Patrik says that the 74945 fits like Carmina's forest last, which is true I think, both are generous, but the 74945 feels like it has a more generous instep. And forest's toe is definitely much rounder and more bulbous.

You can see most Bonafè lasts, with a small description of the fit, via this link:

Derby shoes (model 3635), I believe colour/material in the first picture is Betis Castagna.

If colour is too boring and people want to change up, I am interested to try lama sahara (on the right):

 

 

I am not a big fan of 946 last (as per the 1st picture), am thinking of going for 74945 last instead.

I would like norvegese chain-welted, natural rope laces with leather ends, millerighe (see picture below) or double leather sole.

A red or green lining should be interesting.

 

 

Any interest?

 

I'd be down for that first pair shown - would prefer double leather sole with metal toe taps.  74945 rocks.

the round last looks awesome. square last looks 90s-ish

Does anyone have a photo showing polo suede from both GG and Carmina together? Want to get a sense how they differ in terms of colour.

I've noticed the 946 last looks much better on larger sizes. In that photo I think the smaller size and wider welt makes them look 90s-ish I agree.
