    I find the rain last in 8uk to fit fairly well, however it's on the roomier side but not enough go up half a size. since the rain last is already on the roomier side for me, would it be wise to size down half for the Inca last for a snug fit - 7.5uk.

    Stevent I saw that this morning and almost instantly kopped the 9.5 but then realized its F width which would be too wide for me.

    Hi. Is there any photos of Enzo Bonafe aubergine calf shoes other than the boots on Skoak's website?
    I am trying to decide on the color for MTO and would like to have box calf for chelsea boots.
    Thanks

    No top down of the 2102B last?

    I know you said this last was unpopular, but the rounded soft square chisel is perfect to me for cap toes and medallions like the Burgundy Beauty.

    I'm on a phone so not sure the WeTransfer link is working for me.

    I personally love the Melezze calf of the Monkey Boot. Thinking that with chained Norvegese would look sweet.

    So many options!

    It's actually a popular last, but it's hard to fit. It caters only to clients with a high instep. We don't have any stock of this last, so we can't photo it. Sorry. But it looks very close to MH71 from a top view.

    No sorry, we don't have any in stock and no photos but if you Google it I'm sure there are tons of pics.

    We have no other picture of that calf since it is so new in stock for Bonafé as well. However, we like it so much that we are doing a seamless wholecut this spring in that particular leather.

    We'll be able to elaborate when Bonafè open up again on the 7th. Please note that EB uses this scale for width. The only confirmed last in different widths is 946.

    E-narrow
    F-normal fit
    G-wide
    H-very wide

    The main difference is that Janus is more "sporty" (shaggier nap), while the Hidro is dressier and the suede we always use for the models in store.
    Very similar in fit. The instep of the 804 is slightly lower and that last is also a bit elongated.

    Please e-mail us, [email protected], for further advise or questions as well as the procedure to order a MTO from Bonafé.

    Heel is pretty much the same, but the instep of the 804 is slightly lower than the 946 last.

    The Bonafé double monk has its strap in leather, matching the upper material. Adding a medallion would not include any extra surcharge.

    can't wait to see the makeups that start rolling in.

    @Leaves what do you think about running a little contest in conjunction with this? Like once you receive all the final completed MTO's from Bonafe we run a little contest/poll and people vote on their favorite makeup? Then the winner maybe gets like a discount on a future MTO or something?
