    I realise that this is somewhat subjective, but I don't think that a button boot and a Norwegian welt and Dainite sole would go very well together. A button boot is an inherently formal boot - perhaps the most formal boot you can obtain - and thus the "rustic", decidedly informal style of the Norwegian welt and rubber sole simply won't match the formal style of the boot.

    It would be a bit like wearing a dinner jacket with a checked, oxford-cloth shirt with a button-down collar.

    Looks awesome, is anybody interested in having this made in light tan color or Vitello Elise as Bonafe calls it?

    If you missed out on the Carmina Tobacco Suede chukka in size 8.5UK, I am planning on returning mine for reasons not related to the shoe or sell if anyone is interested. See my signature for details. If you are in U.S., you will save $50 on shipping.

    It is a great shoe and the Tobacco suede is awesome.

    Cheers

    This is by Bestetti, but is that sort of the look you want?

    Does it have to be tan? Or could it be a shade darker? That colour for me is only to be worn for summer months.

    That's a idea light tan. What color are you interested in?

    I kind of like the make-up that Skoak did. Maybe something a shade lighter? It would be easier to wear I think.[​IMG]

    The makeup Skoak did is similar to chestnut color and I am interested in light tan. The shade lighter would put us in a tan territory and I believe. Hey @Leaves, @GabrielOB what do you guys think?

    We're expecting a similar style in July, but an Adelaide with a peaked heel counter (modified model 3200) in Gold Museum Calf, 2102B last. How does that sound?
