Sounds like the original was single leather with a thin Vibram outsole. Shall we count you in?

Anyway, I do already have 6 pairs of chukkas. Fewer than @RogerP and @ThunderMarch, but still enough to convince me that I don't really need a pair like this. Even if I would really really like them...

Actually you have more chukkas than I do. But this, and my next two orders are likely to be chukkas so I will catch up. :-)

The originals were single leather with thin vibrant sole on the 74945 last.

I'll ask @Leaves

to post up the specs - last / sole and such on Monday but I'm happy with the exact boot shown.

You know it's an awesome makeup when you can subscribe a second run immediately on delivery of the first run.

I was worried that the first run being completed and subsequent sharing of pcs would spark a renewed interest for a second run and I now find myself wavering again.

Very excited that these arrived today, two days earlier than the original ETA from FedEx! Really love the soft burnishing done on them, I'm sure these will be getting plenty of wear throughout the year.

 

Here's a few indoor shots including some macros of the apron and toe. Click to see high resolution.

X-POST: Clarification regarding the Enzo Bonafé "Split Toe" style reference 3964 which we now have to call a "Enzo Bonafé Reverse Stitch Derby" or something similar. This is a short description how the construction is made. Please note that the description has been transcribed through a Skype meeting, and as you all know English is not our first language, nor is it Massimo Bonafé's.

"The leather is not split, as compared to the 2475MOD model, which has two pieces of leather combined in one stitching. The stitching on the 3964 model is made by a thread being stitched on the ”back side” of the upper leather. The lady who makes these stitching inserts the thread and needle without passing through the upper to the other side. The thread stays in between the leather and she has a very, very small margin to make this work. If she makes even a tiny error, the upper is ruined, which is why it is very tome consuming and delicate work. We would call the technique reversed stitch (freely translated from Italian)."

Doing an interest check - anyone interested in a pair of hatch grain chelseas from Enzo Bonafe? These are the chelseas without the seam on the side, only seams are on the back.

Something like the picture below but without the norvegese stitching. Thinking of:

- oxblood hatch (as shown in the picture) or something lighter like sienna hatch
- millerighe sole
- bombe construction for waist (hand welted rounded waist)
- 74945 last (or maybe 804)
