    I received the Enzo Bonafe wholecuts today. They weren't kidding when they said that they fit just like the Carmina Rain last. For me they feel almost exactly the same, which is great for me since the Rain last is probably the best fitting last I've tried out of any maker. The shoes look as good as the online pictures and at first impression I'm very pleased.

    Glad you like them. That's actually one of my favorite make ups we have in the store right now.

    It appears to be some sort of burgundy/brown. I thought it was brown at first glance, but someone on the Bonafe thread pointed out that it is in fact a burnished burgundy. Whatever it is, I agree it's a nice looking color.

    +1. That is the same advice I got from other sources, but I haven't put it to use yet.
