    Comparing 804 in size 8, and 946 in size 8.5, the 946 is roomier in the toe box and roughly equivalent in length, instep would be higher in the 946 as well.

    If we can get another black button boot as per above in 74945 last before the increase I'm in.

    @Leaves is there an option for a dark horn like (brown) buttons?

    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.

    Can anyone comment on 173 last fitting in respect to other Bonafe lasts or any of GG, EG and Carmina lasts. I know it is a roomy last but I am concerned about the length of 173 last.

    @Stefan88 do you have any experience with 173 last?

    What last is that spectator on?

    I'd dig on it more if it was a calf/suede combo, something with loden suede or even burgundy llama.

    Nice design.

    Hi @sacafotos , it is on 74945 last.

    We have 2 interested now, and are awaiting the lucky number 3.

    Actually the 2 of us have a GMTO of a brown leather and beige suede spectator on the way, so it is unlikely we will swing for another spectator. Probably we want to keep it as an austerity brogue.

    Some folks might find the following comparison shots of 3 different EB lasts useful. A derby in last 363MOD size 7UK, a lazyman oxford in last 804 in size 7UK and a monk strap in last 946 size 7.5UK.

    I also tried to capture the instep but Im not really sure if I was able to capture them properly.

    May I also add that EB is an awesome shoemaker, and Skoak is tops as a retailer.
