Hello all, I am trying to organize a Bonafe brown hippo GMTO through SoleGarb. Below is a x-post from the Bonafe GMTO thread, where further discussion will continue.

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Friends, I am doing an interest check for a GMTO of Enzo Bonafe HIPPOPOTAMUS leather boots, through SoleGarb.

 

Lead Time:

To start, please understand that this GMTO will have an unusually long lead time, on the order of 8-10 months from deposit. This is because SoleGarb will source the leather themselves, and because extensive CITES documentation is necessary to ensure the legality of these hides and move them back and forth between countries.

 

Design(s):

As with other Bonafe GMTOs, any makeup is permitted, so long as we have at least 3 participants for each. For the purposes of this project, single MTOs will not be permitted. At the very least, the following design will get made, as it’s the one I’ll be participating in, myself. It’s been inspired by this pair of Vass hippo boots by fellow member Ghosty06

Pricing:

For US participants, pricing will land around $875 shipped. This number could deviate slightly for ex-US friends, due to changes in shipping and import fees for hippo. You’ll definitely have the final price before committing.

 

What do I do now?:

At this time, this is purely an interest check, so that we can get an idea of how many hides need to be sourced. Just let me know if you might be interested, either in the design above or another.

 

It is not a commitment, though I will kindly ask that you only express interest if there is say, at least a 50-50 chance of you actually following through. As a previous GMTO organizer, it’s rather frustrating when over half your interested parties drop out or worse, go radio silent.

 

Other:

There is a chance that pitch black hippo will also be available, which will be confirmed next week.

 

I have borrowed pictures from what I believe to be the public domain. If yours is used, and you’d like me to remove it, please let me know!

Cross-post from Skoak. The Oscar-last Carmina Jumper ranks among my all-time faves for a casual derby boot. This Frankenstitch pair in Burbundy CXL.

Gorgeous. Could you post close-ups?

Thanks my man - I shot those several days ago when the weather was somewhat cooperating.  I'll see if I have anything close up when I get home this evening.

They look so much richer than the skoak pics.

 

Excellent choice as always, and they still have my size......

Having gone through most of this thread, my conclusion is that G&G boots aren't that well received.

 

Any reason why?

I don't know about that. It may not be specifically what they are known for, but they certainly have a few really great models. This includes the Arran which is one of the best looking chukkas out there, the Thorpe which is an extremely nice looking split toe, the Burnham which is a fabulous looking chelsea which is also one of the better looking ones out there, and the Wigmore which is a great looking balmorial. They also recently came out with the Glencoe a derby which is new to their line. When it comes to sleek and dressy they are about the best in the business.

I'd love to know how you reached that conclusion from this thread.

I wonder what some people's annual budget is on shoes/boots? Especially the ones who constantly seem to have new shoes and post pictures of them.

The thorpe is in the pantheon of great boots for sure.

Indeed.  Frankly, I'm struggling to think of any G&G boot that I would describe as not "that well received" in any general sense.  Certainly the models listed by triple d above are all winners.

@winston - I checked and sorry, don't have any closeups.  I'll post some pics after they have been worn a few more times and try to include some of those in the mix.  They've already had one short wearing and one full day.  Out of the box comfort is superb and I'm really enjoying the aesthetics of the burgundy CXL.  Definitely need more CXL in my life in general.
