NIB Enzo Bonafe Adelaide - 9.5 UK - Beautiful Vitello Bolet brown - 804 last
Will Ship To: CONUS
For sale is a pair of Enzo Bonafe adelaides with the details below. These are new and come with the box and dust bags. For those who don't know, Bonafe shoes are hand lasted and welted. The quality of workmanship and finishing is excellent. They're one of the best values in mens shoes today. Here are the details:
- Size: 9.5UK.
- Last: 804. The 804 last is a classic round, almond-shaped last. It's aesthetics are similar to Vass's F last. SkoAB says to take the same size as Carmina Rain. That didn't work for me because the instep is slightly higher. If Rain is perfect for you or even a bit narrow, these were meant for you.
- Color: Vitello Bolet. I'd say Bolet is pretty much an ideal mid-dark brown, the kind of color you imagine when you think of a brown business shoe. Consider it Bonafe's equivalent of EG DOAK or G&G Vintage Oak, though without the burnishing and perhaps a bit more yellow. The photos came out darker than the actual color. I tried to adjust them but couldn't get the color accurate--cloudy day, office window, etc. The second photo is closer to the actual color. I will post outdoor photos as soon as possible.
- Model: 3200MOD. Note the peaked heel counter, simlar to G&G St. James II.
- Sole: Single Dainite with a thin leather mid-sole. I selected this configuration so that the sole would be sleek for a business shoe but wearable in wet weather.
I ordered these through Skoaktiebolaget in January during the MTO fee waiver. Unfortunately, the instep is too high for me, and insoles and tongue pads won't fix it. Otherwise, there is no way that I would part with these. They're gorgeous.
Please note that my name is written on the insole.
Let me know if you have any questions. Price includes shipping in the US via USPS.
New photos added below. They're almost all outdoor shots in direct sunlight so they're a bit lighter than in person, but I adjusted them so that I think they're pretty accurate now. There's one new indoor shot that's pretty accurate. Also, two photos show the sole measurements.
5/31/15 Update: Added the first photo. Forgotten I'd taken it.
