    I bought these as well, and am wearing them a second time today... Absolutely stunning shape, color, and the fit on my high-instep foot is exceptional... First burgundy, first semibrogue, and first enzo bonafe, though I'd be shocked if it was my last. Now for all you size 11's out there, please enjoy the beautiful saint crispin or EG's at Skoak and leave all the EB's to me.

    That's a really nice shoe and I'd consider getting it if my shoe collection were more diverse and I could get a shoe that is similar but not quite the same color as others. But if that were in vitello bollet, I'd probably get it. It's definitely on my MTO wish list with bonafe being so reasonable.

    Realy? I experience the opposite... Once the first drop falls, everyone becomes a prius driver (no offense to prius drivers)

    @dalevy
    Yup, rain in May and June has become the normal here, but it's more like quick showers and drizzle here and there.



    Same here! First in everything and I love them. I've just stared building my wardrobe so this is my second pair of shoes as an investment. What kind of shoe trees do you use for these bad boys?

    These are definitely a good foundation-type investment shoe, very versatile... As for shoe trees I use one kind, the deluxe hanger project ones, for all my shoes.

    Bonafe's are definitely priced well for the quality, best sole for the price on the market today

    Debatable, but they are up there.

    Looking good! Now you've got me really excited about my pair. I've ordered something very similar but with another medallion and smaller broguing in Plum museum calf.

    Better post some pics when they arrive! Those sound beautiful!

    If you don't mind me asking, is this something you've purchased from a dealer or straight from EB? If the latter, whats the pricing on something like that?

    Thanks

    Thanks, I'll make sure to do so. I placed the order with Skoaktiebolaget during their free MTO promo. So standard EB price (otherwise it's 15 % for MTO or 0 % for GMTO, 3 or more).

    Don't forget that part of the benefit of ordering through Skoak is their "pull" with these makers: Skoak orders in high enough volume to put a brand like EB on the map (at least overseas) so I'm sure EB would listen more if Skoak needed to speak up on your behalf, say in the case of a botched MTO or even just a simple delay.

    Gentlemen,

    I am looking for sizing advice in Enzo B. 804 Last.

    Here are my sizes:

    Alden Barrie Last-10E

    Alden Grant Last-10EE

    Alden Aberdeen Last-10EE

    Alden Hampton Last-10E

    Alden Plaza Last-10E

    Carmina Detroit-UK9.5-Best Fitting Carmina Last

    Carmina Rain-UK9.5-Wearable but not ideal

    C&J 325 Last-US10.5D

    The best fitting lasts I have are the Alden’s and the C&J. My right foot is a 10EE and my left is 10E in US sizes.

    I have found that it is better for me to go a little bigger than smaller...

    Thanks in advance.

    What's the problem with the Rain last.
