    2102. I got these last week just in time to wear for an important meeting. They are extraordinary. First but definitely not last pair of Bonafes.

    So, your saying the EB is a better choice.
    Hopefully it's not too late to send money.

    Congratulation, you must have some seriously high instep. I would really like that last for whole-cut Chelsea boot but I am not sure that instep would work for me.

    Thanks. My instep is on the higher end - not sure about the seriously part.

    Well I have high instep too and I could not fit in 2102. Apparently Skoaktiebolaget is discontinuing 2102 last because customers were having problems with instep.

    It would be awesome if Bonafe could modify that last to suit a low to moderate instep. According to Patrik they have about 5000 last styles :) so I'm sure there's something similar in the repertoire

    Great looking pair of shoes. How would you rate them when compared to C&J, Vass, EG, or G&G?

    Interesting... Feel fortunate they worked as I ordered blind on fit.

    Leaves, any chance you're going to restock some Carmina business basics with Tomir or Dainite soles? I checked the expected arrivals list and didn't see them. I was thinking about the now-arrived rainy season and their potential usefulness.

    But mercedes are overpriced pieced of shit and Hyundai - genesis sedan and Equus- are priced tens of thousands less and great values.

    I think bonafes and Aldens are far more value laden than mercedes. Is that your point?
