    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.

    Didn't inspect it super closely, but it did not look or feel like hatch grain to me.

    Would anyone be interested in an Enzo Bonafe suede adelaide GMTO? I've seen quite a few nice ones and I'm thinking of doing one in Hidro Tabacco Suede (double monk) and one in Hidro Volpe ( chukka)

    Not sure what kind of design is possible, but maybe wingtip, u-tip, or plain punch toe.

    @Leaves When you mention these will be similar to the ones stocked in the fall, do you mean similar in style, color, and last? Also, about much will the stock models be and what is the ETA of arrival? These look wonderful and I am looking for a black boot. I can of course email/message SkoatAB if need be. Many thanks sir.

    Vitello Elise is very light tan color, I have a swatch. Are you sure you want chukka? I am planning on ordering Bonafe adelaide in that color. let me know if you are interested.

    I could go for this sans metal toe tips.

    I would go for that with or without metal taps.

    I do not know, @Leaves probably has a better idea.

    Plum museum looks identical to the burgundy austerity brogue by Enzo listed on their site.

    I loved that plum museum austerity brogue, but when I went online to purchase it, she was already sold out in my size.

    You snooze you lose I guess :)

    What does everyone think of this design? Does the medallion work with a stitched toe cap instead of a brogued cap? I've almost always seen a medallion paired with either a brogued cap toe or wingtip.

    @Leaves does the chain stitching come in any other colour? Can it be made to match the colour of the upper?

    I am not a boot guy and do not yet own a pair of boots, but after seeing the side profile shot of that boot on skoak's instagram, that thing is beautiful. It shows the contrast of the black grain and the plum so much better.

    It's certainly growing on me. :)

    What do you think of the stitched cap toe and medallion combination? I can't help but think the medallion 'overwhelms' it somewhat.

    I don't really like black as a contrasting color but the overall design is fantastic. The medallion works.

    I would like to do a dark brown suede U last, but I would want it to be Carmina on the Rain last with a leather sole. That would be cool. I am in if anyone likes the idea.
