@Laufer did you ever get your bonafe chukkas? Curious to see pictures and your opinion
edit: wrong thread
We heard there's a batch of Burgundy Cordovan incoming, but it might not be enough for the whole series, we'll see how many pairs they can make up. Sorry but the amount of Cordovan coming out from Horween is very limited at the moment.
Aubercy has their own designs and lasts, this is important to know. We cannot for example make a model at the Bonafè factory using an Aubercy last, this is strictly prohibited by Bonafè. Also, Aubercy makes their own unique designs. I also do not now if Aubercy makes shoes at different factories, might be those models are made in Bologna, maybe not, I don't have enough intel on the subject to tell for sure. What I do know though is that Bonafè has a huge amount of models in their line up. I mean, really huge. If there is a model out there you like I'm sure we can find something very similar to it, just e-mail us and we'll sort it out.
That's a hard picture to judge any color hue off of. The Bonafè grey suede is mid-grey, please have a look at our button boot on our website to see the color hue.
Hi leaves, is there a catalogue of the Bonafe models?
^ Ha! Good one! : - )
Wurger I think somebody asked the same question a few months ago and I believe that the answer was no, there is no catalogue that exists.
Bonafe apparently has a shit load of lasts and styles and very few records.
This is Italy we are talking about after all
What I was looking for is a sleek almond shaped last like the 2 examples above.
Is there any darker shade of grey other than those of the button boots?
I did get them I do not have pictures right now. The boots are great but a half a size too small. I have not had a any luck with Bonafe lasts, this is unfortunate, considering what are wonderful shoes they are.
Yes. Would prefer the pictured combo and sunken toe plates.
The short answer is no. Since the number of models and lasts (as well as modifications of the two) is vast and ever increasing, a catalogue is not available at the moment.
The 804 last that we use for our Enzo Bonafé double monks might be of interest to you in that case.
There are no darker shades of grey that we are aware of.
I want a Whisky penny loafer, either in boxcalf or shell cordovan
Any interest in getting this from Enzo Bonafe or EG? I have a lot of Carmina so want to take other brands...
Hi I find a photo of penny loafer by Enzo Bonafe, in chiseled last
However I prefer the smart round toe of the above loafer...
X-post from the G&G thread:
G&G Hove in Vintage Oak.
G&G Isham, also in Vintage Oak (for myself actually).
G&G Kent (modified) in Vintage Cherry and Cherry Alligator.
G&G Westminster in Racing Green.
We also received a small restock of Sinatra, Gable and St. James II for those of you who might be interested. We have a larger restock incoming in June and some really nice new models rolling in this fall, please stay tuned for more info.
