    Would much prefer to stick with burgundy or maybe black to keep this a city boot.

    Delete the captoe and speed hooks, and add a medallion and you have the MTO I just placed for a St Crispins bal boot a couple days ago.

    Just bought some new shoe$. Carmina suede cap toes paired with flanells from Incotex and socks from Sozzi.

    I'm also waiting for Bonafé (tan adelaides) and Carmina (navy penny loafers). [​IMG]

    I got more information from Patrik about the options with Bonafe.

    We are currently discussing the following make up:

    - Dark brown calf upper/dark brown grained calf shaft
    - 2102 soft chiseled last
    - Norvegese welt
    - Natural sole edge
    - Regular width

    Sole options:
    - Double leather sole (metal toe taps would be an extra 400 SEK)
    - Dainite sole (extra 200 SEK)

    The price is 4,560 SEK ex-VAT plus 300 SEK for worldwide shipping. This would include a double leather sole, there would be an additional cost for toe taps or Dainite as listed above.

    It is therapeutic to tell myself this.

    Quote:It pretty much has to be burgundy for me. I have black covered, and think brown will be well covered by my existing Carmina suede bal boot and incoming Carmina shell captoe derby boot. The only other bal boot colour I am after is dark navy blue, but I'd be reluctant to go with Bonafe here absent seeing an example from them. I know that a Carmina 80092 is navy shell or navy calf upper with navy suede shaft would be absolutely killer. And Vass does an outstanding navy wingtip bal boot. At present, i suspect I will go one of those two routes for navy. Burgundy seems like a sure thing from Bonafe here - the job they did on that shoe is as good as it gets, IMO. And of course, I will almost certainly look with envy upon the brown derby Bonafe boot being cooked up by our friends.
