    Fabulous, glad to see you got them.

    I can't wait to hear your thoughts on how the button boots fit and wear.

Style: [​IMG] Colour is [​IMG] [/quote] I will go for this so long as the double monk Pattern used is this slant like in the picture, it is in grey museum cafe, and I can get it in a width that is the equivalent of an American "e" width.

    I guess you can keep your Barrie E size

    FYI I wear Barrie 9.5d ie 9e, and I wear UK9 in their Darth Vader wholecut.

    Thanks. Consistent with your experience, I wear 7E in barrie and sometimes can get away with 7.5d although 7E is better. I am 7.5 E in brannock size. I typically need an "F" width in UK-sized shoes. I suspect I will need an "f" width here too, but I will need guidance since I have never had Bonafe shoes.

    I hate you
    I mean.. I wish i would have pulled the trigger. I love these boots...
    I think I had just ordered shell Vibergs at the time, so I held off.

    How should we size the Chelsea boots? Should we go half size smaller because of the elastic?

    If a boot is on the Soller last, I believe Alex wears a half size smaller than Oscar last.

    I'm an 8D with a high instep. I love the Oscar last in 7.5UK. Should I go 7UK for a Chelsea boot on Soller or 6.5UK?

    I ask because another member said he went with normal sizing for the Chelsea and it felt loose.

    @Skoaktiebolaget , can Bonafe maintain the wholecut aspect of the pattern or will they have a back seam? If wholecut I am definitely in for grey museum. Would appreciate if can confirm. Thanks.
