Can one of you gents give me advice on 363MOD sizing? I'm pretty confident I'm a UK6.5 (need to unload a ton of too-big shoes). According to Skoak's site, 363MOD runs the same size as Carmina Detroit, which would be another half size down from traditional size (or 1.5 sizes down from US size). Thanks!

363 last is definitely roomy, particularly the width. I find it's ok to stay in these size with a pair of boots, since feet swells during afternoon. But if you want a better fitting, then yeah half size (UK) down would be ideal.

  • 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

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

  • 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 5-8 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.


Just an update here -- we've gotten the required 5, but there's still room for 2-3 more.  Lorenzo will be leaving the GMTO open for a couple more weeks if you'd like to join.  Just let me know!

Good point, I didn't even think about the speed hooks or eyelets! I'd want to do the standard 4 eyelets and 3 speedhooks, but with regards to blind vs exposed, I'll ask the gents first and get back to you! 

post #2413 of 2840
I think speed hooks are a great idea. Three or four, I'm good with either; eyelets, no preference in terms of color etc...
post #2414 of 2840

Drumming up interest again! Here's the final specs with pretty much every detail accounted for:

 

EB Balway Boot
363MOD Last
Dark Brown (saddle brown) Hatch Grain bottom
Inca Dark Brown Shaft 
270* Chained-Norvegese stitching, welt cut close to shoe, white/cream thread for chain stitching only (example of StC below)
Dark Brown Welt with matching welt stitching
Dainite Sole with leather midsole

4 exposed eyelets 3 speedhooks, all dark brown to match

Natural Lining

 

So this model 

 

 

in this leather

(bottom will be hatch grain on left, shaft will be inca on right) 

 

with a welt closely cut like this

^^shows how norvegese with a closely cut welt will look. 

 

Please PM if interested!

Not worried it'll be too much grain/conflicting?
