post #3181 of 4449

Does anyone have Enzo Bonafe in Toronto in 7.5 or 8UK?

 

 

Looking to try on 946, 363MOD, 74959 

 

 

Would buy you a bottle for your time.  Absolutely no rush.

If you have any other questions, let me know!

Interesting. Always hard to really tell how the leather and the last shapes will look based on a few photos, but the price should fill a gap in the market.

I was going to say that the antiquing is a bit extreme but according to the FAQs that issue has already been flagged.

We could share our own shoes. So far my partner and I have owned our shoes for over 6 months and they look great. You're right about the antiquing, we got that comment quite a lot and we agree, we're getting that fixed.

 

In about a month we should have reviews from bloggers of Toronto so you'll have a neutral perspective!

Will you have more conservative (traditional) styles up? Say something like an Adelaide or a simple quarter brogue captoe or some plain captoe oxfords?

Or a wingtip, or penny loafer (finding a nice affordable, sleek, non-beef roll, dark brown suede loafer proves difficult) or chukka?

Right now we're not working on more lace-ups until August. We will launch 3 penny loafers in June (Dark brown, Tobacco suede & sand suede). In the fall we'll launch 3 style of boots (different colours) and a plain toe Blutcher or oxford we might do an Adelaide too.  

 

We do currently have the plain toe cap toe but in blutcher. 

 

Sign up to our newsletter and you'll know when we're launching those. We're also trying to work with our customers as much as we can to bring the styles they want, so if you have an idea of what you would love to see exactly, let us know!

Penny loafers, definitively give us about 3 weeks, we're waiting our samples. 

Wingtip might come in the fall or the winter. 

Chukkas, yes! In the fall. Sign up to our newsletter and we'll keep you posted. Also, if you have an idea of a specific shoe you would want to see (may be a chukka in green suede or anything) let us know as we try to work with our customers as much as we can to bring style you want.

Can you guys provide top-down views of your shoes? It's hard to tell the shape of the last with the current pics.

Congrats on your new venture......all the best!!

Okay thanks for the advice!! We will do that. 

 

Thanks for the good words!

This all sounds very promising. I noticed on the site that it says all shoes are made to order. Would that potentially allow any model to be made up in any other color? I'm thinking a penny loafer in your port wine color would be quite versatile.

 

And +1 on having an overhead shot.

Thanks! If you do write to us with that request, we could work something out! They're "made-to-order" meaning that when you order, we put the purchase in. But we could definitively work something.

On the subject of shoes, thought I'd share a positive experience with a resoling job at Nicks Custom Boots. Pretty quick turnaround and some nice work on an eight-year-old pair of C&Js.

That looks really well done with the flush toe tap and closed channels better than bench grade C&J sole finishing.

Nice stuff. Do you have a before pic?

No, sorry. I didn't think to take any since there wasn't anything remarkable about their condition. I had, however, worn completely through the sole under the ball of one foot.

The flush toe taps were done at my request and cost extra, of course. But I wear through the toe of my soles much more quickly than anywhere else.
