    Email Skoak and have them add some Burgol to your shipment. Not sure which shade, but I think someone else posted a review of Burgol polishes somewhere. Favorable review :)

    Bolet is a quite rich mid brown color. We would recommend to use a medium brown polish and maybe add some darker brown to the toes.

    For Museum calf, Neutral is best, at least to begin with.

    Outstanding! Deliberately not spoilered because it would be a crime not to show these again.

    Black adelaide looks nice. Kinds of makes me wish I hadn't done the peaked heel counter on mine because the line of the counter complements the lines around the laces so well. Next pair! Definitely shows how much Bonafe would benefit from better pictures of their models. (I know you're working on it!)

    Anyone have real life pics of the Bonafe Burgundy Beauty? I'm looking for a dress shoe under $500 and wondering what the color looks like in person. The Carmina burgundy adelaide is also very tempting.
