Rodger, what did you decide on the lama Chukkas? I keep almost pulling the trigger...
why not get the bonafe bal boot? i actually prefer that one. but in any case, good luck. if anything be patient youve got an up hill climb here
I'm just not sure about the grey suede. I love the look of the black on black; the grey seems like a bit much.
i may be mistaken but im not sure if a black gmto of anything has been made. let alone a bal boot..
if anything be patient youve got an up hill climb here
I believe the one I'd pictured was a stock model, rather than a MTO.
"believe"? what are you confused about? leaves said it was a stock time from a few years ago
im saying black gmto rarely get made by the community
Not confused. Sorry.
It's true, though, that black is just not as popular.
I'm thinking about something like this as well as I am in the same boat as LeviMay. Or...
Or... I'm intrigued by the Bonafe bal boot but it seems the grey makes it more daring for lack of a better word. Might it possibly be too nice/elegant to serve as a boot you can wear to the office or around town. I can definitely see rocking them as a wedding shoe or a night at the Met but I don't get married or go to Met openings all that often. The above seem a little safer. I guess the question I'm debating is can I pull of the Bonafe 2 tone's without looking too much like a dandy? Is it a special occasion shoe (wedding/opera) or can I rock it with a suit and wear it around town and not feel overdressed or out of place? They are definitely more interesting and would be more fun to wear.
Agreed that a black on black MTO is an uphill climb but I have brown and burgundy bal boots so there is a place in the rotation for black.
My thoughts exactly. The black could, I feel, be worn with pinstripes as easily as to the opera, whereas the two-tone would be that much more memorable, and, thus, be brought out less often.
i agree, this is a great way to own a black boot. black can feel meh, nice to mix it up with suede or some nice detail. good luck!
Many thanks, sir.
nay, like rogerp, i already have one. hurry up and get yours and join the club!
If you guys get 3, you should just do an MTO through Skoak for Bonafe -- get that same model but with black suede instead of grey suede. That price is amazing - a bit more than the Carminas but the quality is outstanding and you don't need 6. You don't even need 3 if you are willing to pay just a 15% up charge.
Thanks for the info - good to know. Still intrigued by the Black and grey. Should a man have an "F U" shoe in his closet?
