Unfortunately, we have no picture of the finished Cardiff model in this material.
Is 804 or 74945 lower in instep? I thought 804 was, but more than once it's been mentioned 804 fits like rain and 74945 fits like forest.
@Leaves Do you have swatches for the different colors of buffalo?
The 804 has a slightly lower instep than the 74945. Widthwise however, the 74945 is quite similar to Carmina's Forest last. For the Buffalo leather, see this link:
I would believe that both pictures are quite representative. Etrusco is a reddish brown color which great depth and works amazingly well with a great variety of colors.
@Leaves re: 946 last, are the Enzo Bonafe shoe trees lasted? And if they are not, would the Skoab shoe trees be a good fit?
I will be ordering a Double monk in the 946 last and wondering if I should get a shoe tree and which one. I do have some generic ones lying around.
Bonafé does not offer lasted shoe trees. They are of generic fit. Our shoe trees fit the Bonafé lasts very well.
Correct. For a MTO, you can specify if you prefer a deep burnishing but for the shoes we order to our store, we specify a soft antiquing.
Yes. Bonafé uses F width as their standard and we recommend to size down half a size from G&G E width to a standard width Bonafé.
