    Wolfpack from reddit here - if a fourth expresses interest in either welt, I'm still in. Slight preference to the 360 though.

    Also noticed the makeup has Bonafe's dainite - not that it matters in the slightest but Lorenzo does have branded Dainite now too.

    So Lorenzo has informed me that he has some pretty awesome shark available for Enzo makeups, so I'm trying to revive my side zip makeup, except now in brown nubuck shark:

    [​IMG]

    Makeup will be:


    And price should be ~$860 ($660 + ~$200 for shark, he's verifying for me now). Any interest?

    I've also set up a reddit thread here:

    Hi Everyone,

    My shark side zip GMTO is ready to set sail. Final details are:

    Brown:

    Black:


    Lorenzo also sent me some extra shots of the shark so you can get some ideas about the grain. See here:
    http://imgur.com/gallery/qk7k1

    The boots will look similar to this grey suede makeup makeup here, except there will be no swoopy seams on the front. Ours will also be Chelsea height instead of having a higher shaft. Lorenzo and Bonafé are pretty sure they can do it without a heel counter (especially in Chelsea height), so ideally it will only have a small seam underneath the zipper -- however they will not know for sure until they do a trail pair. But they want to have a committed group before doing the trial pair. So assume that the boot will have a heel counter, however if it is possible to do it without one (which they think it is), we'll get it without a heel counter for no upcharge. Cost will be $885 ($660 for boots + $225 for shark).

    We're limited to 10 pairs in either color, so the first to send me a message either here or on reddit ( https://www.reddit.com/r/goodyearwe...l_details_and_committening_enzo_bonafe_shark/ ) will be in.

    Hi All, I wanted to gauge interest in a pair of these single monks.

    These would be on the 773 last and have a single leather sole.

    These would be hand welted and have a dark brown edge.

    Lining: Natural

    The bottom part of the vamp would be Museum dark brown and I would keep the blue suede as the picture below.

    PM me if interested.

    I'd be interested if any traction is gained with a GMTO based on the 946 last that would allow me to order in "H" width.

    You can add in an order of a different width once the GMTO has at least 6 orders in standard width.

    Hey Guys, I've been in discussions with Lorenzo of Solegarb over the last couple days/weeks to make a wholecut slip on summer shoe. This is what we came up with. We are going to place the order by the end of the week, maybe sooner as we want it to arrive in the Summer, so let me know if you are interested or definitely want a spot ASAP.

    This is going to based on an existing loafer/slipper model, but heavily modified as listed below.

    Here are the details:

    - Wholecut Slipper/Loafer, based on this model(http://i.imgur.com/IgYJ0YU.jpg), but ours will be quite different and unstructured, read on
    - 804 last
    - blake welt to make it sleek (this is shown in the picture above), natural single leather sole
    - Five brass nails at toe and topy at front(https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0...VIB-Riva-F-02_grande.jpg?12295949976468038419)
    - Light brown (noix) kudu flesh seen here circled(http://i.imgur.com/QKYd5FA.jpg)
    - Completely unstructured with thin lining (no heel counter and no toe puff/box, this will make it collapsible and very easily transported in bags as the blake sole is much more flexible as well). Should be very comfortable
    - Price: $505 with topy (50% up front, 50% on delivery)
    - Should be ready by Mid Summer in June/July

    Recommended sizing is 1.5 down from brannock since these will be worn sockless or with thin socks but feel free to ask here or e-mail Lorenzo for further fitting advice.

    Let me know if you're in!

    It's mine. One of my favorite pairs of boots, in fact.

    Well they are beautiful ! I found them while looking for Millerighe sole pictures and it fit exactly the theme we were going for, a darker strap Jodhpur.

    I have a question, are they 270 degrees handwelted ? Is the waist handwelted as well ?

    Because I've noticed some shoes have a sleeker Blake stitched waist which is beautiful, but I'm a little worried this may make resoling difficult, and impair the sturdiness and durability of the boots ?

    Also, am I not seeing right or is this a bicolored strap ?
