    And what's the design story on the Monkey Boots? There's gotta be a story?

    Just asked Dr. Google and it appears that the monkey boot was issued in the Czechoslovakian Army in WWII. Interested in learning more about this.

    @rydenfan
    I may be in for that Chukka. Great find.

    That Chukka I believe is on 946, but the Norvegese derby @Stefan88 posted seems to be on the 062/g; note the toe of the latter has the same chisel as 946 but just appears wider (see the black pair posted on that last).

    I'm considering an MTO for a Norvegese wholecut with braided laces on the 062 last. Maybe Vitello Vernaccia, Giamaica, or Bolet. Any medium chestnut color, ideally with some mottling, something lighter than the chukka posted.

    And dat Monkey Boot...wow.

    Sorry, but the norvegese derby of mine is on 946F (the normal width for Bonafe). The black pair (special austerity pattern) is on the 062/g

    @rydenfan Terrible picture, I'll snap a new one one of these days
