I would say that the CS 401 last and the Yanko 915 last are both anything but chunky. Maybe the CS 401 is a bit rounder, but certainly both look elongated and sleek.

Via the Patina program, the 7991 is available with a leather sole (via the Noble Shoe). Color choice is a personal matter I would say, not necessarily coupled to the climatic region.
I should have maybe be a bit more clear in my writing. Is thenobleshoe.com the only ones offering the Carlos Santos Chukkas with a rubber sole?

I have two questions:

Anyone know how slim the Carlos Santos chukka boots 7991 is compared to Yanko's chukkas?
https://www.skolyx.se/en/shoes/269-45659-chukka-boot-dark-brown.html#/70-size-39_uk_5

Is anyone of them a bit more "chunky/wide" compared to the other?

Also does anyone knows if Carlos Santos only does the Chukkas 7991 in leather sole? I am aware that thenobleshoe.com has their Chukkas in Coimbra Patina with a Dainite sole, but I would like them in Braga color if possible. Is the Coimbra the only color choice right now (If you want the chukkas in a rubber sole) if you live in a colder climate?

Thanks in advanced for answering my questions.
Hi, I can't speak for Skolyx but you should size down half on the Santos Chukkas unless you have pretty wide feet from your regular UK.

I am probably the only one retailing them in Dainite yes. The ones coming through the Patina Service are only with a leather sole. However I do offer the chance to add a city sole through my shop if you really want Braga Patina.

Except for the blacks, they all look cheap,
which they are. The egregious antiquing
is a giveaway.

The hand patina which requires talent and is expensive you think look cheap? Could you elaborate?

Are you sure this is Norte or is there a lot of natural light? They look like they are Light Norte Patina. Looks great btw!
Yes, there is a good deal of natural light in the pic. Pretty sure it's Norte Patina (says so on the invoice).
And thanks!:)

Ah thank you that is more like it. I am curious because Light Norte is the ONLY patina I have never seen in real life. I have seen all other 20-21.
