    So I spoke with Gabriel from Skoak, and he said that the chukka in lama is the cola color. I first thought it was the ebano because it looks like a dark brown in the picture, but they took a closer up picture that shows it as a little lighter, like this one on the left part of the picture below.

    What is everyone's thoughts on the chukka with the chain norvegese on a leather sole (either single or double) with either the Cola or the Reh (between cola and sahara) that no one seems to have a picture of. Also on the 804 last (picture of the monk with the beveled leather sole) because I was told that this last will fit my narrow low volume foot better and I would like to add a different level of elegance with that almond toe to contrast with the chukka style itself as well as lama leather and chain norvegese.

    Chain Norvegese:

    Leather sole with beveled waist on 804 last (almond shape):

    [​IMG]



    Flat Leather Sole (can't tell if single or double but still in two tone like the single)

    [​IMG]



    Somewhat Flat (double leather sole in one tone) as in the norvegese derby below:

    [​IMG]



    Gabriel sent me a picture of the basic shade of the Reh, but not in the lama leather to get an idea, which is also the same shade as the picture above.

    Which color (in lama) as well as which leather sole do you think makes the nicest combination?

    Just curious, how difficult is it to put on and remove a pair of button boots?

    It looks more like Hidro Marasco, which is lighter Burgundy color with more red in it.

    I would go with the Reh, and two toned double beveled sole if possible.

    No, however if it looks similar to the color he said then that's the one I think I would go with.

    I am thinking pretty hard about those EG Alderley's that Skoak has in stock right now. To anyone that has a pair, are the Alderley a strictly casual jeans/khaki's style or are you able to dress them up a little for the office?

    I don't have a pair, but I would wear them to the office with trousers and a sport coat.

    I agree. I think we sometimes lose perspective in these forums on what is truly considered office appropriate. With the exception of a very few offices in America, if you walked in to work wearing those EGs in fall/winter, you'd have the most dressy shoes on by far.

    Without a doubt. If I walk through here any season in my 64 last, Veldt, Rosewood CC Galways I'd have the nicest looking shoes in here.

    Speaking of which, have you had a chance to put much wear on those yet? If so, how are they aging and are you still happy with how you sized them? I thought about ordering a pair - finally - but my size is sold out. Top of my list for next winter.
