    They worked together to find a special last that they could work with for my size. It wasn't a custom last, just a last that they don't usually use. I may do one in the future since this was a good starting point so I know what modifications I would need for a custom one.

    Looks a bit like the 062 last to me. Very nice, and nice design!

    Well you can all ways ask them and it's kind of weird that they didn't say that inside the shoe.

    It was not a particular last, like the 062. For this pair, they had to adjust the fitting of a UK 12.5 last they had in the factory.

    Good job!

    Not easy to achieve a good fit like that.

    Wow Gabriel! I didn't realize that they did it like that for me. I really appreciate it a lot! Now I really feel special. Haha.

    And of course you know I'm going to buy more in the future because I know how hard you guys work to help me out with my unique sizing!

    First pair of Enzo's came today from Skoaktiebolaget! These are so beautiful. The 804 last is excellent. Need to find a nice brown linen suit to pair with these...

    Those would probably be perfect w a lot of shades of blue slacks/suits as well.

    I think you're right. They're probably more versatile than I initially thought. I'm even going to try them with jeans and see how it goes. One nice thing is the linen is a nice off white, so I think that opens up a lot more options.

    That is very true & it will look good with lots of light to dark colors & bright color combo also.

    I agree. The color of the linen will work well with many colors and materials. It is a quite versatile shoe. Definitely show us some pictures when you pair them with different pants.

    I received my haul from January MTO buy and I can say that Bonafe is magnificent shoemaker. I am going to showcase here my pair with the fur insoles only I requested and in my opinion Bonafe did magnificent job. The model is in Claret Museum on74945 last which is beautiful. If anyone is interested in doing GMTO on 74945 last in chukka or other boots, let me know.

    Hey @Leaves what cordovan colors does Bonafe offer? I seem to recall you saying that Bonafe has decent supplies of cordovan.
