What can you advise me about Bonafè last 946? Should the size be the same? Or due to larger width and higher instep, should I size 0,5 down?

Thanks!

I wear AE 10.5, Vass 43.5 and Barrie 10. EB 946 for me is 9.5

Thanks for your feedback. I have to think quite well because being a GMTO and not fitting it's like throwing money out the window...

That essentially happened to me. Went with 8 in the 946 for the Bolet Adelaide and it's a little too snug at the ball of my foot and toe box (pinky gets pinched). If anyone's interested in purchasing them (worn 1x), PM me.

You are just like me you need G width on 946 last.

Looking that way. I did contact Skoab and was advised to go up to an 8.5 so I ordered the black Raven on 946. That should arrive today and will help me decide if I need to go with a G width in an 8 instead. I wear 8.5F in Alfred Sargent 724 and 8.5E in C&J 348 so hoping 8.5 in 946 works out.

Lol, I'm definitely passing on this seamless Wholecut 946 last. I'm also size 8 on C&J last 341E...

8.5 in 946 arrived today and based on trying them on, fit seems good. I'll wear them tomorrow and see how a days worth of wear feels.

What size are you for eg & G&G?

Wearing the EB Raven Oxford for the first time. The 8.5 in 946 fits much better than the 8!

Those are some seriously sexy shoes. I love how EB finishes black calf.

Haven't been able to own G&G or EG (slowly working my way up the price points), but I did try on RLPL Grant II on EG 888 and the 9/9.5 fit best. Have no idea what I would wear in other lasts though.

Agree, finish is fantastic. Got some slight creasing as photos show, but they feel great.

Cross-posting from Skoab and from the EB GMTO thread:

 

Interest check: would anyone be interested in joining a GMTO for an Enzo Bonafe loafer in Oak Tärnsjö leather and a Topy Vibram sole?  We'll need to garner at least four participants with standard widths and eight participants if we want the option to order varied widths and avoid the MTO surcharge.    

 

 

This shoe:

Enzo Bonafé Suede Penny Loafer

 

With this upper:

Pre-order deposit Enzo Bonafè Oak Tärnsjö Chukka

 

 

Please send me a PM if you're interested.  Thanks!

Quick update:

 

Price will be 4880 SEK ex VAT (4480 base + 400 peccary charge) if we can get 4 pax

There will be enough peccary for 4-5 pairs at least

Any interest?

I am thinking of a GMTO oxford in the design of the 1st pic below.

 

Upper: black calf (vitello nero) - I am also open to lama in black, not sure how it will look

Medallion on toe cap, like 1st pic

Trim: black peccary (colour scheme is similar to the boots in the 2nd pic)

Last: 804F

Lining: red goat - I am also open to bordeaux goat

hand welted

Sole: leather sole in black, open to single or double

Laces: thicker laces, like Skoaktiebolaget's ones :)

 

Any interest? Pls PM me. If we have enough I'll contact SkoakB. Thanks!

Cross post from Leaves' thread:

 

Opened the box of my recent acquisition, reno'd and polished

 

 

Calf-Suede-Lama tonal spectators on the 804 last no medallion (navy calf, navy suede, blue lama).  Double leather sole in black with flush toe taps.

 

I was going to do an austerity / full leather MTO on the 804; but because my only other 804 was calf-linen spectator I wanted to see how the suede would fit before I jump full in on all leather.  Love the fit; so might do it at a later date.
