    +1. I expect to be severely tempted by the incoming button boots.

    Is this boots available in 8D US? For Bonafe, the size is a full size or half size down in equivalent to US sizing?

    Hi, we stock this from UK 7.5-UK 10. Depending on what last and maker you have as a reference point for US size, a UK 7.5 could work, please e-mail us for more details. sales@skoab.se

    I just have to put my experience here with Skoak and team. I ordered 2 pairs of socks and it was so smooth to order. I contacted Patrik as I hadn't received them. He immediately replied with a solution that was helpful and proactive. After we thought the socks were lost forever they showed up.

    Patriks attention and quick replies will make me a customer of theirs forever. It was something so small as socks. Great work and fantastic customer service

    How many orders are needed for a group MTO, and what is the discount?

    Thanks,
    MM

    Call it what you will, I call it a discount. Thanks.

    I have been looking at the website nonstop (my keyboard is covered in drool and not functioning well). Just hadn't seen that section on the group MTO details. Thanks.

    With Bonafe it only takes 3 to avoid the MTO fee...and the MTO fee is only 15% so it's not that expensive to order your own shoe.

    Unfortunately there is no catalog, and very little info or pictures from Bonafé. I just received five sample lasts from them, and I will use these and a lot of imagination to build our fall season models from Bonafé. :D They have a lot of models, it’s a pity they do not have more info available online. If you see a Bonafé model you like and would wish to make an MTO, just drop me an e-mail and I’ll try as best I can to help you. sales@skoab.se

    At the moment we have only tried out two lasts:

    • 363 round, classic last. Fits similarly to the 202 last, but is visually slimmer.
    • 946 chiseled last. Very typical Bonafé last, well balanced and strongly chiseled. Fits similarly to Carmina Forest last but a tad bit snugger in the toe box.

    I will probably add one more last to our collection.

    Extra surcharge for MTO is +15% of base model. Minimum three people required for Group MTO's, as mentioned above.

    I'm going to have to come in and look at that button boot, looks stunning from the pics. (Un)Fortunately not in my size, need to wait for my MTOs anyway before buying anything new.

    Guys,

    have you all received your Galways yet? I received mine yesterday. What are you impressions? I like them I am eager to test these because they are unlined I assume the break in period will be shorter. I am really curious why EG insist on making Galways unlined while Shannon boot is fully lined?

    Man those string loafers are speaking to me. If I didn't have a tassel MTO incoming I'd have bought them already.

    I wanted those in Loden green but the only pair in UK7 was sold. To bad they didn´t restock those.

    I have the Snuff. The blue is on the way, here by the end of next week if not sooner.

    Highly considering Loden Green, just no idea how to wear it.
