Just got a response from Gabriel. A couple final things we need to iron out:



Personally, I'd prefer the softer added burnishing, matching sole edge and flat laces,  and can go either way between single leather or having a vibram topy.  Thoughts?

Cheers. Keeping the Kudu was never in question - keeping the Voak as well was the issue. Past tense. Having the VOAK in hand it looks a good deal dressier than the Kudu. At least, that's my rationalization and I'm sticking to it. :-)

I don't think I could part with either myself.  The texture on the kudu makes for a more casual boot, so I don't think you'd often be in a situation where you were trying to decide which one to wear -- the rest of your outfit would decide that for you.

Cheers bud. Not nearly that large - UK 9F - but both pairs are going to stay anyway.

ENZO BONAFÈ 3964 SPLIT TOE DERBY GMTO IDEAS:

 

Thank you all for showing such a big interest in this model and the whole Skoak team are really happy with how this model turned out to be.

I would probably be in for option 2; wasn't there discussion of this shoe in suede as well?

I would definitely be in for a suede version.

Hi there @Skoaktiebolaget

Thanks for collating the information.

However, the GMTO I proposed is actually for this model : 

 

A different model but also a split toe. We had hoped to incoorporate this new skin stitch technique into this model. 

As of now, we have 6 guys, our specs are already down and we are ready to go. But I have been just informed that Bonafe cannot accept this request as of yet. 

post #22679 of 23837
@Skoaktiebolagetthanks for the great summary. I am a definite for suggestion 1
post #22680 of 23837
Hi, I'm may be interested in suggestion 3.
