    Picked up a pair of shoes from my cobbler (he imports EG, alden, LCA, Paraboot & Bonafe. He did his training as bootmaker and worked a few years @ Bermondsey (was run by David Lobb) he then started as boot maker here, but the market was to small. So he imports & sells some brands and has excellent after sales service [​IMG] These where a MTO for the store, = EG but the E.B's with lasted trees. E. Bonafe also do a excellent button up boot (centripede has one on display) They have couple of clients that swear by it. There is a German that has ordered 2pairs a year for the last 15years ... In various combinations of course. Can you imagine 30+ pairs of button up boots Tried on a beautifull Sutor wholecutt, the blue soled version the other day [​IMG] It's up there on my wish list ... As is this Bonafe @ boq BAD SF [​IMG] Speed

    Thanks, but what store is this and where is it located?

    I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to order a pair of EB myself.

    Oh, im sorry, have been nagging so much about our local VAT (norway 25%)
    That I thougth some one might have found that out by now.

    If you know your last in EG, he might be able to help you (VAT exclusive on export of course), give me a PM and il check. Have an other pair finished there tomorrow.

    Speed

    In my lacal market these where priced roughly as EG's but that included lasted trees. As these are real norvegese, they usualy command a simmilar price in europe. Having recently seen Tanino Crisci norwegese @ their store close to Pavia. (Am kicking my self for not buying the double monk, but it was only avalable in black)

    Their GY are somewhat lower priced, but they also du blake. I think their lower end go for the equivalent of 800us (blake below that of course). Mens EX gave a whole page to EB, where EG had 3.

    Speed, just simple figures not maths homework. [​IMG]

    On the boq site it says 80000 yen, which would be around € 500,-

    And what is the price for the lasted trees?
