Enzo Bonafe Navy Shell Cordovan Derby - 8.5UK (9.5US) - SOLD

Enzo Bonafe Navy Shell Cordovan Derby - 8.5UK (9.5US) - SOLD


This is a listing for a custom (Made-to-Order) pair of Navy Shell Cordovan 2-eyelet derbies from master Italian maker Enzo Bonafe. This is a one-of-a-kind makeup. The size is 8.5UK on the 946 last. The box states that it is E-width (which is narrower than their standard F width), but this is actually a combination of E and F. The instep of the 946 last in the standard F width is very high, so for this makeup, I had the instep and heel area made off of the E width, with standard toe box of the F width. I am a standard 9.5 US with a normal instep and this pair fits very well.

The material is a beautiful navy shell cordovan from Horween. These have always been maintained impeccably with brushing after each wear. Worn under 10 times, they are still in amazing condition. Retail for a single MTO from Enzo Bonafe in Horween shell is over $1000.

Here are the specs:

Model: 3168 Two Eyelet Derby with Blind Eyelets
Last: 946 E fitting with (F fitting in Toe Box)
Size: 8.5 UK E fitting for instep and heel (F fitting in toe box)
Leather: Horween Navy Blue Shell Cordovan
Construction: Hand Welted
Sole: Single Leather with Bombe waist inside and out (5 Brass Nail on toe)
Edge Finish: Dark Brown
Lining: Dark Blue Goat
Blind Eyelets
Dark Brown Flat Laces

Comes with Shoe box and bags, no shoe trees.

Let me know any questions. This is final sale. Thank you for looking.
