Very nice . What type of soles are on those?

Cheers. Double leather with metal toe taps. I'd definitely go synthetic if I were doing it again.

'Synthetic' meaning - what? Which sole would you choose exactly?

Dainite or Millerighe (however you spell it).

Have just been wearing my chukkas in the 74945 last (same pair Roger has) for the past few hours (as opposed to just trying them on).
And I think I feel a little differently about the fit now. It's definitely less generous in the toe box, and shorter than the 804 in the same size. I also feel that the heel is tighter. So I think, definitely, don't size down for it. 8.5 it is for me (my normal size).

Ok gentlemen ...
I really shouldn't.... but I'm just going to fucking throw it out there.
How do you guys feel about an EB GMTO boot of some sort, in Zug?
post #2618 of 2837
Is Zug an optio? And is it the reddish Zug or the brown Zug?

The only downside to me of a boot GMTO now is timing - are they going to show up in the spring? Bonafes turnaround time seems to be getting longer and longer. Not surprising as their popularity has increased.

Oxblood & black I believe is the option

After a brief email exchange with Solegarb, oxblood is the only option left. Black and brown are no longer available.
Here's what it looks like.

^^^ Cheers.  Yes, I'm familiar with the oxblood version - I have it on a pair of Galways and love it.  But between those and my burgundy CXL Carminas, I don't have room for another reddish heavy duty derby boot.

Haha, true that.
No worries!

It's a great option for those who don't have that slot filled though - and nice to be able to get Zug at a Bonafe price point.  Here's a better look at the material:

Looks way better there, than the Instagram shot of it.

Thanks for the pic. Very well taken, as always!
Actually I don't think zug is an expensive leather tbh, just that not many makers work with it.
