Incoming dark cognac shell on the 74945 last. Wanted a derby boot that was nice and simple via Lorenzo of Solegarb.

Nice choice!

How was your experience working with Lorenzo of Solegarb?

Really good. Took a while for us to work out some kinks in what I wanted but he was patient and communicated well with me. Would recommend him if you're in the states.

Gorgeous footwear. Congrats! That instep looks crazy high, though. How does it fit?

Which kind of leather for shaft for button boots do you prefer, llama or peccary?

I can really recommend Peccary. I have a pair of Balmorals from Bonafè with Peccary shaft and they are amazing. Extremely soft and supple, just what you want for the shaft.

I could not agree more.

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

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

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!
