    Someone said Green and it's almost like the Bat Signal went off. LOL


    I like that bottom pair.

    I like that pair too. The texture brings the adelaide to an entirely new level.

    The color is a bit muted and not too bright which is very nice. I also tend to like shoes or boots which have more than just one texture and or color. It doesn't always have to grab you, it just has to be there.

    No problem, for future reference, if anyone has any questions, please PM dddrees as he is screening them for me, thanks :laugh:


    Lol, yeah. It is kind of messed up using photos of shoes costing 2x as much as examples for an MTO since they will never live up to the pictures. I just share the common aversion to spending a lot of money on suede shoes. Hopefully it's just a phase and I'll grow out of it.

    Well at least I'm not being shunned or banned.

    I'm being included and overworked. LOL

    @Leaves does EG make an unlined chukka on the 82 last by chance?

    @stevent,

    Indeed I wish there was a real life picture of green llama or at least a better picture of that swatch. What size did you take in those llama chukka?
    I am awaiting a confirmation from Skoak as to availability of Bonafe lasts in wide width. I do have problems fitting in 946 and 74945 but I think I would benefit from a wider width instead of going up a half size. I am willing to take a chance at least.

    I almost forgot about that green delapre makeup. I think that will be one of the winning combinations of all time.

    Laufer,

    You say the 74945 last gives you problems - I'm curious, what size do you take in Carmina Rain and Forest if you have shoes in either of those lasts?

    Thanks!

    At this moment no, not to my knowledge. You'd have to go the advanced MTO route (2240 SEK ex VAT) and order the Shanklin on the 82. It's only listed for the 202 under the standard offering.

    1. No extra charge.
    2. Not to my knowledge, please email us and we can ask Bonafé.
    3. Good queestion I'll ask @GabrielOB to check this.
    4. We're still waiting for an answer from Bonafé regarding last widths.
    5. See below. Note that Betis looks very different after they have been finished. It looks so different when finished that we have been reluctant to post them before. As an example, the derby shoes posted here is in Castagna Betis.

    For our last round of Darth Vader MTO, is betis or vitello being used? I want a thicker & stronger calf.

    That would still be an option for me, the price is still very good even with option 2. Now i just wait for that first EG to show up, to check size... :)
