    I had the same thoughts about the chiseled toe as well. I was really hoping if I went with it that it would work for me because chiseled toe really looks fabulous.

    Bonafe bespoke is only 2000 SEK more I say in your case you should probably plan your next vacation around visiting Bologna.

    Gabriel is probably right, I did not know about your feet being 14A or AA that is really tough to fit.

    Yea I saw that it is but the problem is that I am in medical school and don't get off. I'm also going into a surgical residency and as you can imagine, I won't get much time off for travel during that time. I would love to get a chance soon to stop over in Italy.

    I spoke to Enzo and he said that he can make a shoe in my length, but he would have to play around with my measurements to check the width. I don't know the exact details on that yet. I think they are closed for the week.

    I decided to go with an EG MTO I've been considering for long time. I've been wanting another suede and calf EG shoe. Something I could wear with jeans. I had been thinking about the Harrogate but after more serious consideration decided the Malvern was more my style. Once I got to this point I decided that the Chameleon Calf and Loren Suede would be a nice departure from the more typical offerings I had initially considered.

    I love the chiseled toe too. It looks great.
    Museum calf is one that i was thinking of, plus there are quite a few colors that really are fantastic. They can have so much depth to them.

    Good choice. I like the Malvern too. So you did you do it like a spectator? That will be really cool for jeans and you probably could try to push it with some other types of pants too.

    At some point it may, but Museum calf hasn't really grabbed my attention yet. Seems like it might be higher maintenance though, besides I really like the leather and color already pictured as is.

    Yes sir, and I have a few other spectators already as well as a Galway in suede and leather. I really like the Suede and leather combination. Really kind of gives the boot or shoe another dimension so to speak, with different colors and textures.

    Yes I love that combo too. I actually have a pair of plain cap toe double monks that are set up in the spectator shoe style in dark blue for the leather and the suede. I haven't done it in a boot yet, but I will have to try it eventually.

    I think it looks great in the EB button boots too. Especially leather and suede or even the leather with peccary or grain on the shaft.

    EG Galways are fabulous looking in this particular configuration, and there are so many various different ways that work so well together.

    You're right. it seems that the galway is close to the perfect boot to work on the combinations.

    It will work very well. I recall a chiseled toe chukka with norvegese that Rider did (through a top italian maker, can't recall which) -- not museum but very deeply burnished. Those Enzos on 946 made me think of them immediately and I've considered whether to order a pair with chain Norvegese in museum of one shade or another.

    Wow so there may be a few of us sharing photos of similar shoes on here. So you were thinking 946 chukka with chain norvegese in museum? Which museum were you thinking? a dark one like plum or one of the lighter brown shades?

    Was the one that Rider did from his own company or another company?
