    Beautiful. I just inquired about that shoe at Skoak but in an oxford model instead of a lazy-man shoe. I was told Bonafè unfortunately didn't stock such make up.

    Yes.

    You won't be able to button those without a button hook.

    Happy to report that after repeated 20 minute wearing a on carpet, my Bonafe chukkas have stretched a tad and mded to my feet well. I'm now quite happy with the fit and convinced not to part with them (would have been such nonsweet sorrow).

    The only thing is there is still some space in the instep that doesn't affect comfort but causes some major creasing. I wonder if tongue pads would help this particular issue?

    If it were me and that roll/ crease was there when standing, it would drive me crazy. Maybe not the best last for you? Beautiful boots though.

    Pepper,

    I am so happy for you my friend.

    If it were me, I would not worry about that wrinkle at all.

    Shoe trees and maintenance could straighten that out a little.

    Good for you.

    When you have fat feet like us, just be thankful you can get your feet fitted at all.

    Yeah, the instep of this last is too high for me. But there may be a way I can mitigate the crease (although it doesn't bother nether much...

    That's a lot of extra instep space... You might need a few tongue pads to lift them up. Or just a size or two too big/long.

    Do anybody have pictures of Enzo Bonafè's color Bergeronette out in the wild? It's supposed to be a mid Brown color, much like EG's burnt pine. Thanks.
