    New evidence has surfaced, causing me to overturn my original verdict... :lol:

    A teaser of our Enzo Bonafé Seamless Wholecut in Aubergine Calf. Price will be 7200 SEK ex VAT / 9000 SEK inc VAT. Email [email protected] if you would like to be notified when they arrive. Sizes are limited, but I foresee a re-run of these. They really are something special in every regard.

    Enzo Bonafé style "771 INTERO" on the 946 last - we hope to get these in April

    That is a gorgeous shoe.What is the difference between the Aburgine calf and entrusco? That would look nice in the Norvegese...

    Wow, that is sexy. Wish I didn't have the Etrusco version; I'd be all over that.

    That's a screaming value for a wholecut. Loving EB's swatches.

    I would 100% be in on kudu ishams for a gmto. Would be potentially interested in other make-ups as well:

    The 946 is such a great shape. Guess I'm biased, since I have 2 pairs of EB's on that last :)

    I would be in for a GMTO of something like this exactly. Black kudu 5-eyelet PTB on a round toe last like GG07. But it seems like most are going in a brown boot direction.

    It's fantastic. I do wish the sides and toe were slightly softer, a la MH71 or even EG 890. But it's a gorgeous shape.

    I'm thinking of trying out a 946 in 7G, rather than the typical 7.5 I get; I'm pretty sure that might be the ideal fit for me, as the side walls are a bit snug right now on the 7.5s I have.

    Such a great last, thought. You're right. And I love EB swatches!

    this sounds pretty good to me


    i was referring to these 2 rugged textured leathers in general. i dont know if G&G does shrunken buffalo but the kudu like stevents and patriks pair is special in its own right. would look great as a thorpe boot

    @NAMOR

    Your sexy VOAK Thorpe is proof that the storm welt doesn't make it overly casual; likely due to the sleekness of the last. I think the two balance each other well and thus make the boot wearable for most occasions.

    Anyone take a smaller size for their G&G mh71 lasted boots? Or find them to be even slightly loose compared to shoe in same size?

    Thinking of experimenting with one size down up a width for next Thorpe
