    Either cordovan or calf like Roger you can't possibly go wrong.


    Besides if you haven't kopped an SC yet, this would certainly be a good one. This was my first one.

    Awesome makeups by Skoab again. I'm really impressed by Patrick's designs and creativity. Keeps coming up with winners. Makes me wonder what would happen if he was a shoemaker and could put his ideas directly into creation. I'd probably end up even more broke.

    Oh and about the GF GMTO's, it is a curious thing that Carmina GMTO ideas in this thread tend to die but GMTO ideas at GF tend to prosper. I never really understood it myself as I am very happy with Skoab prices and customer service. However he manages to do it, it does add value.

    That arrangement would never work.

    Without the revenue generated from all of your purchases, he would have to find a different way to fund his children's college, masters and PH.D degrees.

    Our Bonafè boot was of course inspired by StC, Enzo Bonafè had a very similar design in their archives that we used. This is almost always the case. I show a picture or describe a style I'd like and they will say "Yes, yes, you mean our style xxxxx, made in 1973"? Most of their archived 4000 styles would considered outdated but there are hundreds that are really cool. Waiting to be discovered!

    Thanks, you are too kind. I'm just really into shoes. There are people far more better at design, but I know a great style when I see it. :)

    GF only has one single shoe maker to promote, we have four. I'd love to arrange more GMTOs but sometimes it's hard to get traction with so many ideas and suggestions in the same thread.

    Any plans for a re-run of the previous boot?

    Speaking of your photos (which I btw think are very good quality) I can't help think there's always a photo of the shoe from above missing, where one can see the silhouette of the last. While not the most sexy of perspectives it's nevertheless the perspective you will see ones you start wearing them. But that's just a suggestion :)

    That's not a problem since school in Sweden are "free".
