    Great looking chukka.

    Here are some additional information about the price:
    Enzo Bonafé model 3403, 363 last - Base price of a GMTO for this model is 5500 SEK inc VAT or 4400 SEK ex VAT
    Hidro Jasper
    Complete fur lining (except the insole) - Extra surcharge of 800 SEK inc VAT or 640 SEK ex VAT
    Double Dainite soles with storm welt - Extra surcharge of 250 SEK inc VAT or 200 SEK ex VAT for Dainite soles
    Personal inscription inside the insole - Free of charge
    Delivery time is about 10-12 weeks, just as mentioned
    Total price for this GMTO: 6550 SEK inc VAT or 5240 SEK ex VAT (about 800 USD) plus 300 SEK for worldwide shipping.

    About the 363 last:
    Tend to be a little higher over the instep than usual normal fitting lasts. Otherwise, it has a rounded toe box and the length of the last is true to size. With a fur lining, Bonafe will adjust the fitting and compensate, by re-inserting the last once the insole is on. Please e-mail us at [email protected] if you have any further sizing questions.

    Can you tell us EG equivalents colors of Bonafe suede? Somehow jasper is not very descriptive and general people are more familiar with EG suede colors.

    I would compare and say that Enzo Bonafé Jasper suede is very similar to Edward Green's Mink suede

    Thank you for this information. Very helpful in making a decision.

    Question: This is obviously a boot to be worn in Winter. How does it make sense to make a Winter boot out of suede? Wouldn't the fact the boot is made of suede make the boot unusable for Winter in places where one gets snow and rain in Winter because the suede would ruin in seconds in snow and rain? And don't most places that get Winter cold enough to warrant a fur-lined boot also get snow and rain during the Winter? Am I missing something about this suede -- is this suede used by Bonafe as durable for snow and wet as kudu leather or something? Finally, won't this boot be hot as a motherfker indoors where there is heat?

    I really like the look of this boot, but, as I said, I feel like I am missing something. It makes no sense to me.

    Thanks Gabriel, what about that first color from the right? It seems to be darkest of all of them. I would prefer this boot to be very dark suede.

    I asked those same questions. It turns out suede may make more sense than leather. Check out the video bellow.

    Quote:That nanoprotector stuff works a treat. Spilled some coke (a-cola) at the movies on my navy suede Carmina chukkas and the stuff just rolled off. It has served well in the rain and I am very confident that winter weather will pose no problem. What I'm not sure of is exactly how often re-application is needed to maintain this kind of performance, but I guess I'll find out.

    The first suede from the right is called Moka and is very similar to EG's Mocha suede, a very dark brown suede. And your are right, it is the darkest one.

    I'm happy to inform you that those were not a group MTO so you didn't reall miss out on anything. Also, I'm wearing them right now. Thank you!

    Suede is the best in those conditions. I live in Sweden and one of my got to shoes for the past three winters is a Loake suede chukka. It looks like new and the only thing i do is to spray it before the winter and then i give them a good cleaning after the season. If i wear them in slush i just rinse them under warm water when I get home.



    That was my first plan but then i visited the store to compare the colors and Moka is to dark. It looks almost black. Jasper is very dark brown, i took the pics directly under a spotlight.

    Gabriel,

    thank you. Can you do something similar for other Bonafe suede colors like you did with those for Vitello calf colors. Across the EG spectrum comparison. The suede colors are very tricky to photograph in my experience so any descriptive help is useful to us trying to determine the exact color.

    Here is a small comparison between the suede colors and what the closest color would be from Edward Green:
    6. Bonafe Hidro Moka --> EG Mocha suede
    5. Bonafe Hidro Jasper --> EG Mink suede
    4. Bonafe Hidro Tabacco --> Between EG Mink and Coffee suede
    3. Bonafe Hidro Volpe --> EG Coffee suede
    2. Bonafe Hidro Walnut --> EG Nutmeg suede
    1. Bonafe Hidro Sella --> EG Nutmeg suede but the Bonafe suede is more towards beige)

    Hopes this small guide helps!
