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.

    Enzo's lasts are almost perfect for me, especially the 363MOD and 804. I'd say the fit on these is spot on:

    These were the GMTO done last december. They're on the 804 last with a rombe waist. I put a full album up on imgur here:

    And here are some more images:

    They're so beautiful I'm a bit reluctant to wear them around and scuff up those soles!

    Got to ask how you sized on the 804. Sorry as this is a done to death subject but I don't quite know how I'd go if/when I go for a pair of these. Thanks.

    For a bunch of sizing info/comparison:

    I'm a 10.5D brannock with a high instep. I take a 9.5UK on the 363MOD and the 804 and both fit extremely well. I have a pair of 363MOD Jodhpurs and 363MOD suede wingtips and they fit excellently, as do my 804 spectators.

    My Enzo Button boots are on the 74945 and are a bit snug in the instep in 9.5 UK.

    Other sizes that fit well are 10D Alden Barrie, 10 on Viberg 1035, 10E UK on C&J 335 and 9E UK on C&J 365 (these are a bit snug however, and I'd probably do 9.5UK if I got another pair on that last).

    I take a 10.5E on Allen Edmond's 65 last due to my high instep. The D width is fine however I couldn't get the facings closed on my Park Aves (which I sold to make way for these Enzos).

    I've had some issues with the Carmina rain last - there's too much room in the heel. My rain last suede chelseas in 9.5UK are really roomy and I need to wear thick wool socks and my rain last calf jodhpurs in 9 UK fit quite well. But I had a pair of shell wholecuts on the rain last in 9.5UK that were too tight! Not quite sure why that last has been weird for me.

    I also recently had a pair of Vass Theresainers size 43.5 in the P2 last, however my instep was too high for them and threw off the tongues significantly, however everything else about them fit well.

    This is very helpful. I've got double monks coming in the 74945 last and I'm hoping the instep and toe box is a bit more roomy than the carmina rain while width remain the same(both 8.5 UK). First EBs so I'm excited. I think they'll b perfect from what I've read.

    I'd say the instep is more roomy, but the toe box is not. At least for me.

    Many thanks to Skoaktiebolaget for putting together this kudu thorpe GMTO. These are just fantastic. I don't think I could have picked a better first pair of G&Gs.

    What???? You still do not have a pair in Vintage Cherry?

    This is the shoe that started it all.

    Just got my first pair of EB from skoak today in the mail. This is my perfect last and the shoe quality is on another level. Next time skoak gets a black cap toe on this last I will certainly be picking it up(hopefully soon, hint hint [​IMG][​IMG]). Such a pleasure dealing with the guys from skoak. Thank you!
