    Could be worse... if they were Alden in whiskey, ravello, or cigar shell!

    Don't get me started... I hate it when sale seasons come up... I think I'm doing fine until all these "SALE" stuff come up.

    I don't own neither (yet) but Di Bianco at its core is Blake Constructed while Bonafé is hand welted. Not to mention that Di Bianco's are way overpriced IMO starting at $895 USD, and if you upgrade to good year, you're looking at $1,200 USD minimum. While Bonafé's are $607 USD.

    What is Enzo Bonafe shoes sizing? Do they fit true to size?

    Depends on the last. You can't just ask for sizing; each last is slightly different.

    For the 946 chiseled last of the austerity brogue and the etrusco calf wholecut, I wear a 7.5UK with thicker socks I can't size down. My size in Alden's Barrie last is 8D. I measure 8E on the Brannock.

    I got a solution for you, we're the same size so just tell me when you see a good sale and I'll do you a favor and buy it so you don't have to :D.
