    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.

    Guilty as charged. :) But seriously, the awesomeness of this makeup manifestly obvious.

    Would love to see some side profile pictures of those if anyone already has them, on the fence about how Bonafe's high instep lasts look on a chukka. Might prefer to go with a maker with a lower instep last with a chukka, would likely fit my fit better as well.

    Ah I guess more specifically, I'm looking for a photo that is perpendicular to the side of the shoe, like the ones I posted a few posts up. The photo's I've seen so far are all at a slight angle.

    Not sure you're going to find many ground-level profile shots, but you never know. I think something like this should give you more than a fair idea of what the shoes look like in profile. Different last on this particular example, but the suede chukkas are on 74945

    Ah yes, that's essentially what I was looking for. I somehow overlooked finding it on their site, thanks!

    Clarification regarding the Enzo Bonafé "Split Toe" style reference 3964 which we now have to call a "Enzo Bonafé Reverse Stitch Derby" or something similar. This is a short description how the construction is made. Please note that the description has been transcribed through a Skype meeting, and as you all know English is not our first language, nor is it Massimo Bonafé's.

    "The leather is not split, as compared to the 2475MOD model, which has two pieces of leather combined in one stitching. The stitching on the 3964 model is made by a thread being stitched on the ”back side” of the upper leather. The lady who makes these stitching inserts the thread and needle without passing through the upper to the other side. The thread stays in between the leather and she has a very, very small margin to make this work. If she makes even a tiny error, the upper is ruined, which is why it is very tome consuming and delicate work. We would call the technique reversed stitch (freely translated from Italian)."

    The CS field boots are just amazing. Very elegantly executed!

    Also, @RogerP's steps are wondering where their royalties are [​IMG]

    Is that Tarnsjo leather on the new Bonafe & Dandy ShoeCare boots?

    Terrific new drops - and I agree with you on the CS field boots - very tempting. Love the Dandy Shoe Care derby boots as well.

    The CS selection SkoaB has put together is commendable!
    The light brown suede boots look terrific as well.

    No, this is a Inca grain and available as a standard selection from Bonafè's swatches.

    Does CS do MTO?

    Looking for a grain winter boot but need a storm welt and victory sole for the ice/slush.
