    Guys,

    I missed when Skoak had this boot:

    http://us.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/enzo-bonafe/products/enzo-bonafe-balmoral-boots

    I am looking to start up a GMTO on something very similar, if not identical.

    Enzo bonafe balmoral boots (w or without perforated cap)
    Brown calf grain, open to variations.
    76545 last
    Handwelted construction with flat welt
    Double leather sole with rubber topy/half sole (am open to other sole options as long as they're thicker than a single leather sole)
    All eyelets (grommeted, antique), no speed hooks.
    Fully lined inside, lining in tan vegetable-tanned calf (colorful linings are chrome tanned and not good for foot health in the long term)

    Thanks!

    I am desperate to have it in yoko. Add a Norwegeese welt (not necessary), remove cap and add a medallion.

    Although I am open to making some changes, the changes you are looking for, removing the cap toe and adding a medallion, and Norwegeese welt, are not what I am looking for.

    Anyone else interested??

    (Cross-post here to garner interest)

    Hi, I am pulling an interest check to do a GMTO for an Enzo Bonafe Austerity Brogue done in the following style.
    It will be a pair with smooth calf and grain leather (both in black).

    Enzo Bonafe
    Last: 74945 (rounded last with chiseled profile), F width
    Leather : C – Black Calf Leather
    Leather : Gr – Black Grain Calf Leather (Inca Nero)
    Lining: Natural Calf Lining

    I am checking on pricing with the folks in Skoaktiabolaget, and will report back later. Let's see if we can pull 3 or more before the price increase sets in next month. Thanks for reading.

    Gentleman as you know, Enzo Bonafe prices will be going up starting this March 1st. In addition GMTO rules will be changing too, now we will need minimum of 4 orders to avoid MTO fee? IS there anybody interested in doing GMTO on EB chukka on 363 last? Maybe fur lined chukka like this

    @Frank the sheep pitched this idea a few years ago but it never materialize.

    That looks like a great idea back then. Not sure how that last fits, tts? Following his idea exactly from the original post? Any idea on the cost?

    The dark brown jumper boots a post after his looked amazing as well.

    You should contact Skoaktieoeblaget for fitting advice regarding Bonafe lasts.
    The cost should be around $600 -$700 excluding VAT depending on the options, if we take goyser stitching, complete fur lining etc. If I receive enough interested parties I will inquire about the cost.

    Hi Guys, I am looking for a NST chukka (like 3 or 5-6 eyelets). I am not aware of any one offering something like this other then Alden and that's also not available in color I want.

    Based on your experience with EB, has anyone here seen something like this from them ?
    Or maybe, if this doesn't exist can EB modify some existing pattern to match this design as close as possible? While combing the web, I found these pics from Saint crispin which closely resemble what I want (though with less elongated split seam , also SC are out of my price range at the moment)

    Will anyone else be interested in this , if it's possible?

    From Leffot IG-

    I am also checking with solegarb for the same request.
