This is why I'm inclined to like them. They lend a slightly casual vibe to a normally highly conservative look.

I do like them, they do make the shoes distinctly casual though, especially if the sole edge is lighter brown.

You can see they look good with the cream linen trousers in the first pic, but in the second, with the worsted light grey wool trousers, they look a little out of place. I will probably only wear those wholecuts with my more casual outfits from now on.

Thanks, that helps a lot.  The balmoral boot shot on skoak's website was throwing me off a bit.

 

It is a great shade.  I especially like it on that whole cut- one of my favorite shoes I've seen.  I think Etrusco has enough versatility to make it a wise start to a boot rotation, although I wonder if Meleze is the smarter play.

You are most welcome.

I feel that Enzo's brown selection showcases some really nice shades. Etrusco / Bolet and Meleze all look fantastic and would make pretty good choices. Etrusco does have a slight reddish hue. 

Bolet would also make a good choice for a versatile boot makeup.

Definitely true, but the light welt already makes them a bit casual.  Although definitely not nearly as casual as with the light laces.

 

I think they'd look great with navy trousers as well.

Agree 100% they look good with navy trousers.

I agree nth at navy would be nice with them. I also love the lighter welt to bring out a slightly more casual nature to the style.

Etrusco is one of the most versatile calf colors I've seen in person. I have two pairs in this leather and love it.

Melezze is pretty but seems to lack depth (from photos).

Bolet looks like burnt caramel. Really pretty.

So what you're saying is buy at least one of every color, yes?

That sounds like the most sensible route.

Now THAT is a pretty last for the bal boot GMTO you boys are conjuring.

The nice people at Rifare Japan has informed me that the last is 100556. Now how do we even start sizing this... Maybe just have to do a good old fashioned styleforum thing of ordering a pair and see how it goes!

I have some experience of this last. Wear the same size as on 804. You first picture really did not look like this last at all.

Instep is quite high as all Bonafe, and on this derby you need a high instep or meaty foot in order to tighten the laces.
This is on 100556

Agreed.  And nicely described.  I need me some Bolet.

Thank you for the photos. I agree that it looks nothing like the original pictures I posted. If you look at the brown or black model on his instagram page https://www.instagram.com/rifare2007/, I think the in action shots show more justice/similarity to your pictures. Scooping the really low angle really changes the proportions of a shoe (and it lends itself greatly to advertisement shots)

The last looks like a less pointier version of the 804, perhaps in between the EG 82 and 202 lasts in terms of silhouette. Very nice find.
