    Yes, those were something extra! The wholecut will be on the 946 chiseled last, in antique brown calf and a natural sole edge. If I remember correctly they also have flat laces. They will have a fiddle back waist (I've never seen Bonafé doing these before so I'm really excited to see these) and a "bicolore" sole (two tone sole).


    Me personally I like black stingray, these look awesome in a wholecut design. I have sold a few pairs in Stingray in Stockholm, but only G&G, never Bonafé.

    Here is a short fitting guide for Enzo Bonafé, I hope this helps. Of course, you can always e-mail us for further fitting advise at sales@skoab.se. The lasts below are just a fraction of all Bonafé lasts, but these are the only ones we stock and therefor the only ones we can offer fitting advice for. This post is a X-post from our affiliate thread.

    Enzo Bonafé 363 last (round classic last)
    This last fits similar to Carmina Forest although it has a higher instep and a tighter toebox. A high instep would be ideal for a good fit.
    General recommendation: Stick to the same size as Carmina Forest but keep in mind that the instep is high.

    Enzo Bonafé 2102 last (soft square last)
    This last fits similar to Carmina Rain. It has a generous instep and the toebox is roomier than on the 363.
    General recommendation: Stick to the same size as Carmina Rain.

    Enzo Bonafé 946 last (chiseled last)
    This last fits very similar to Carmina Rain in almost every regard. Just like the Carmina Rain, it is a generous last.
    General recommendation: Stick to the same size as Carmina Rain.

    For reference, this is what me and my store manager wears:

    Patrik
    Carmina Rain: UK 11
    Carmina Forest: UK 11.5
    Carmina Simpson: UK 11.5
    Edward Green: UK 11.5 F (82, 888, 606)
    Gaziano & Girling: UK 11.5 F (all lasts except TG73)
    Enzo Bonafé 363: UK 11.5
    Enzo Bonafé 2102: UK 11
    Enzo Bonafé 946: UK 11

    Gabriel
    Carmina Rain: UK 8.5
    Carmina Forest: UK 9
    Carmina Simpson: UK 9.5
    Edward Green: UK 9.5E (82)
    Edward Green: UK 9E (888 and 202)
    Gaziano & Girling: UK 9.5 F (all lasts)
    Enzo Bonafé 363: UK 9
    Enzo Bonafé 2102: UK 8.5
    Enzo Bonafé 946: UK 8.5

    Folks,

    I am organizing a group buy for Enzo Bonafe chukka on 946 last in burgundy antique color. Send me a message if you interested we only need 3 people to avoid MTO fee. Also if you have any sizing questions you should contact style forum member Leaves as he is more knowledgeable about the fit.

    That's a handsome boot. I'll be receiving my first pair of Bonafe is a week or so - really looking forward to it!

    Does anybody own a EB shoe on the 2102 last? If so, would you mind providing a picture from the top (bird view) and maybe even a comparison shot with other makers of chiseled lasts (C&J 348-last, Carmina Simpson last, Vass U-last, G&G TG73 last)?

    Thanks in advance.

    Also very nice! I think Asbjörn is stocking a lot more rustic models than us?

    Yes, we stock 2 winter models with shearling, and the same models without. Only one left of the model in the picture, and it's a size 11(probably fit similar to a EG11.5 or 12). Leather is rough though, and supposed to look rough I suppose. Positive it will develop nicely.

    You carry lots of nice models, especially the whole cut on what looked like the 946 last. Just beautiful!
