Thanks! Yea, looks like we're the same in sizing for EB and Carmina.

PSA looks like Solegarb is having a 10% MTO Enzo Fee Special (vs Regular 20% MTO fee)

Kudu shaft in close matching or dark brown shaft 

Single Dainite Sole 

946 or 363MOD last (I have a wide foot, so wider fitting last is a must)

I want to do Norvegese but would only do it EB can trim the welt closer to the shoe. I abhor the wide welt look. Otherwise it'd be flat welt. 

 

Let me know what you guys think. Paging @peppercorn78 and other duck-footed brethren. 

 

Folks, update on this. 

 

Good news from SoleGarb, for the Norvegese stitching, EB can trim the welt closer to the shoe just like on their normal handwelted shoes. No gross protruding welt!!

 

It's now gonna look like this:

 

EB Balway Boot

363MOD last

Norvegese chain-stitched construction with closely trimmed welt (I'm thinking white/cream thread stitching for contrast)

Sienne Hatch Grain bottom-leather

Shaft: undecided, good with either dark brown hatch grain or dark brown inca. Sadly not enough Kudu for a GMTO

Single Dainite Sole

I'm organizing a GMTO for a mahogany shell and tweed button boot through Enzo Bonafé through solegarb and am looking for interested parties.  Makeup is currently:

 

  • 804 last

  • the upper would be the pattern from the new Enzo Balway, while the shaft would be the button boot.

  • mahogany shell and Glen tweed

  • no cap toe

  • donna medallion

  • 270 degree handwelt

  • dainite soles

  • no pull tab

  • natural colored welt -- which is darker than most makers natural welt, my Enzo black shell longwings have their natural welt, see this

 

More details/images here on reddit:

Here is an image of the glen tweed and mahogany shell pairing:

I'm in for the dark brown Inca.

Cross posting from Skoak thread.

 

 

 

Quite keen to do this as an MTO, but checking to see if I can lower the cost if there are other interested parties.

 

Style: 3966 (or 3200MOD)... deciding if I should add a medallion
Leather: vitello bolet with burnished toe and heel
Last: 804
Hand welted, Bombè construction, i.e. a 270 degrees hand welting process where the sole edges near the waist of the soles are rounded on both sides

Lining: purple goat (open for other colours)
Sole edge: dark brown (or is natural better?)

Sole: single leather, donkey back beveled sole, flushed metal toe taps
Laces: flat, dark brown

 

So basically, it will be this upper and last:

 

With this sole (or maybe in natural colour):

 

Any interest? Pls shout out or PM me.

 

Still checking on prices and whether every shoe in the GMTO needs to get toe taps. Indicative price is 4480 SEK + 400 SEK for toe taps.

Single Dainite Sole 

 

Forgot to add this photo. Hatch grain left to right is sienna, dark brown, navy. Bottom left to right is Scozia 6127 (light-brown), scozia 6120 (mid brown), and Scozia 8177 (dark brown). 

 

 

For the shaft, I would do dark brown hatch, scozia 6120 (mid brown), or scozia 8177 (dark brown). Scozia and Inca are the same, but Scozia is pebble grain and Inca is a different grain pattern. 

 

Thoughts?

UPDATE:

 

Re Sienna hatch grain leather: According to SoleGarb, this is the same leather that StC uses for its Russian Calf, and so the leather will lighten at the creases and where it is nicked/scratched. The sienna hatch is the only hatch that does this, the dark brown will not. Given this is supposed to be a tough weather boot, I would be open to switching to a dark brown hatch grain upper (top middle in photo) and dark brown inca/scozia grain shaft (bottom right). 

 

Let me know what your guys' thoughts are.

Balway would also look sweet with a ocean blue suede shaft and navy museum calf uppers.

Millerighe or Single Dainite would be the best sole choice, IMO.

Mahogany and loden I think are the better pairing.

Anyone remember Stevent's Green/black Willow EG Galways?

Those would look beautiful done up by EB.

And I think the 173 last—used for the monkey boots—might look like the EG 202 silhouette.

I agree, and concur with the changes you mentioned, (Sienna dark brown upper, Scozia dark brown shaft), so count me in. I must say though, I'm really loving that Sienna Hatch grain; thanks for posting these images.

Great! Others? Dark brown hatch bottom and dark brown inca shaft

Quick bump on this.

 

Every shoe in the GMTO needs to get toe taps, so price is 4880 SEK (ex 20% VAT) for outside EU, and with VA within EU.

 

Including me, there are 2 interested, and 2 consideration. This can potentially be a go ahead :)

I'm finalizing a GMTO with Solegarb for a Mahogany Shell and Glen Harris Tweed button boot, and we have room for a few more in the GMTO.  IMO this is going to be really stellar.  Here's the final plan for the boot:

  • 804 last

  • The upper would be the pattern from the new Enzo Balway, while the shaft would be the button boot. Lorenzo will be working with Enzo Bonafé on this new pattern, and will be covering the new pattern fee for us (~$200). He will make sure it's perfect.

  • Makeup will be Mahogany shell and glen tweed. Mahogany shell for the upper, glen tweed for the shaft.

  • no cap toe

  • donna medallion

  • 270 degree handwelt

  • no pull tab

  • midbrown welt/edging
  • The sole is the major update from last time. Talking to Lorenzo, Enzo doesn't have a sole like Carmina's tomir leather sole. They can apply topys but these are thing and just glued on. However, even better they do an island style sole, see here for an unfinished one. Basically the leather sole is cut out to have the rubber in the center. This makes the boot look like a leather sole from all angles except the bottom. I would like to use this sole, as it will allow us to have the channeled donkey back sole with all those nice Enzo detailed. This can look quite nice, see these Rozsnyai's.

 

The timeline will be around 5-7 months, in part due to the new pattern. The full is going to run $1185, with the usual 50% up front and 50% on delivery. Per Lorenzo the cost breakdown is $735 for a button boot, $400 for the horween shell, and $50 for the harris tweed -- all pretty standard. He's paying the new pattern fee himself.  If you're interested please PM me your email so I can forward it on to Lorenzo.  Right now we have room for 2-3 more in the GMTO.
