    If Enzo Bonafe got waxed calf, I might want to copy the C&J Northcore

    There is a 363 and 363 MOD last. The 363 MOD is pretty wide and yes comparable to Detroit.

    Left - Detroit
    Right - 363 MOD

    (Detroit last is slightly longer)

    @ecwy : Very helpful! Those austerity boots are gorgeous, btw. If they're as wide as Rain, then I may have to order these since these are still in stock.

    Any chance you could share your sizing on Carmina lasts compared to the 363 MOD last?

    Great idea. I was thinking of a slightly sleeker Snowdon but I think veldtschoen construction would not be an option.

    Hi LoKey,

    I only have 1 Enzo pair. I wear the same size across Carmina and Enzo but I do target the wider lasts due to my wide feet. I wear the same size in Rain, Detroit, Soller and 363 MOD. 363 MOD feels wider than Rain in the toe box to me.

    I would personally recommend grabbing the austerity boot if you like the design.

    Hope that helps!

    Edit - I had previously posted a pic of Rain vs 363 MOD if you haven't seen it

    Thanks for the pictures of Bonafe's designs. Also, it will be helpful if you could provide comparison pictures of Bonafe lasts too, with brief description [​IMG]

    @ecwy: That is very helpful. I wear the same size in Rain and Soller as well, so this gives me hope. I've contacted skoaktiebolaget directly to follow up.

    Nope, sorry, I have not seen it IRL either. But from the description, I have a feeling it's awesome.

    Enzo Bonafé lasts top view:

    946 last - chiseled last (our most popular Bonafé last, fits similar to Carmina Rain).
    [​IMG]

    363MOD - classic round last (great last for boots, fits quite similar to Carmina Detroit)
    [​IMG]

    74945 last - round chiseled last (my personal favorite, this fits similar to Carmina Forest last)
    [​IMG]

    804 last - round almond shaped last (fits similar to Carmina Rain)
    [​IMG]

    173 last - gunboat style round last, very casual (fits quite similar to Carmina Detroit)
    [​IMG]


    Generally speaking you could say that most Bonafé lasts are quite generous in fit, and has a quite high instep.

    EDIT: fixed the pictures so the shape of the lasts were more visible.

    That would be very sharp. I may copy you. Or get one like the picture. Or black calf lower amd grey suede upper. Or get two of these.

    Debating dark brown llama/Etruso calf/burgundy calf
