1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Can it be said that shoes constructed in Blake Rapid are more comfy than Goodyear Welted due to a cushioned heel area?

    Would anyone be down for a loafer in that style/last in a green suede?

    Hi everybody,

    Trying to make the following GMTO happen.

    Enzo Bonafè Etrusco Wholecut
    Double leather sole
    Norwegian natural stitch
    Rubber topy

    Idea is to bring it into decisively casual look

    So, essentially we are talking this shoe

    [​IMG]

    on double sole and this stitch

    [​IMG]

    Norwegian stitch unfortunately adds a lot to the price, so Skoak priced this shoe at $625
    I also open to skip Norwegian and stick with double sole and topy which should be $548

    If you are interested in this makeup please PM me.
    I am going to post this in couple other forums

    Thank you

    David

    @Leaves Can you remind me again of the Enzo Bonafe - GMTO Width rule?

    GMTO - 4+ same width - then can we get additional width added?
    Or do we need 4+ in the same width and only 1 width per GMTO?

    I'd call it chestnut. Brown with warm/reddish undertones.

    First eight need to be consecutive width then we can add more widths but only a few Bonafè lasts actually allow different widths.

    I am writing this refering to the new Enzo Bonafe Penny Loafers by the way. Anyone who can comment on this?

    @Leaves I am thinking about what the Enzo Bonafe Pennys could be worn with. Would you consider the pictures to be true to colour or are they more maybe a tad darker in reality?

    I don't have much experience with Blake Rapid. As for comfort it should be about the same. A Blake Rapid makes the look very slim in this setup, with a single leather sole. It's slightly less durable as a construction though, and less water resistant but as this is a loafer I don't see any problems with this.

    Great, thank you. So most likely any GMTO run through Skoaks webpage, may be able to get a different width (last dependant)

    (I assume you get 8+ participants per GMTO in 1 width).




    For example I could get a 946E in the Chelsea boot on offer.

    Oh. Uh, you're right. They look good on you.

    That color green is def. outside my comfort zone.

    I thought it was more subtle. Looks different than the instagram pics too.

    Fingers crossed!

    Thanks for posting your pics.

    Great choice guys and I can't wait to get my pair!!!

    yes it makes sense to primarily use just a conditioner and then occasionally use hermes red. I guess you could also alternate with some of the browns as well to add even more depth to it, which I will probably do over time, but the Kudu doesn't need much care all the time.
