    As pointed out above, it's Lama Calf and not the animal Llama. I dunno why they call it Lama, maybe it means something in Italian but I don't think so, probably just a tannery that decided to call it so.

    Gentlemen,

    I though you may enjoy a shot of these:

    Happy Whiskey Wednesday, Enzo Bonafe' style.

    The fit seems good. If they were wider it may of been too wide. If narrower, then too narrow...

    I posted about this in the Bonafe GMTO thread in the GMTO forum but thought I should expand beyond that. Is there any interest in doing a group order of this shoe? If I remember correctly, this was on the 946 last, Betis Castagna, 270° chained Norgevese stitching. I should have gotten a pair when SkoAB had them, but now is the time to make up for my error.
