    One of the perks of being a young guy: Most of my shoes are "F U" shoes, and I wouldn't have it any other way. [​IMG]

    Black suede is FU enough. Sign up.

    I can't just yet as I've spent the past 15 minutes staring at the Bonafe's. If anyone has any pictures of a black/grey bal boot in action would love to see them.

    I have mostly FU shoes. I dont see why anyone wouldnt except if they were the president or worked as an attorney in court 5 days out of the week. Anyone else can have FU shoes IMO

    Gents correct me if I am wrong but is a plain toe adelaide a very dressy shoe?

    Also can someone chime in on the Enzo Bonafe chukkas. Size down 1 from US or 1.5?

    Would you mind to repeat GMTO spec:
    Last, Sole and Fit?

    Thank you!

    Have a question for @Skoaktiebolaget ; I realised the grey suede on the enzo bonafe button boots looks more brownish as compared to the grey suede on the enzo boanfe 2 tone balmorals. I was wondering which model's grey suede is the more accurate colour in real life? Thanks

    Yes, but as with my dress shoes, I find that varying shades of burgundy and brown see more wear than black.

    As suggested above, I'd grab that Bonafe boot in a heartbeat if a black bal were in my cross hairs.

    I'd say it's an absolute requirement. :)

    This is good advice.

    I'd do it - would it look similar to this EG shannon?

    Not my GMTO so feel free to ignore me, but I think a dark charcoal grey suede for the shaft that still offered some contrast with the black upper would be preferable to all black.
