    Is there anybody that can chime in on the fit of the 363 as compared to Carmina rain / forest / Oscar etc? I think that would give the best idea of fit. I think I've read on this thread that it fits like the Detroit last or Soller. I don't have experience with either.

    Please e-mail us for specific fitting advise. The 363MOD fits similar to Carmina Detroit.

    Color 8 Horween Cordovan pre-order

    You all know about the Horween Shell Cordovan shortage. That's why I'm very glad to announce that we have been able to secure a small batch of color 8 (burgundy) Cordovan from Enzo Bonafé. We have decided to make the best of this supply and produce a classic Jumper boot, as pictured below We only have 12 available slots for this boot.

    You can reserve your slot by using this link. Pre-order closes November 27 or when the 12 slots have been filled.

    Hi Leaves,

    Should I go for size 8 in Enzo 3824 Jumper boots on 363 MOD last?

    I wear:

    Carmina Rain, Inca, Forest - size 8

    EG 82, 888 - 8.5E

    Alden Barrie - 8.5D

    thanks

    1. I have wide feet, rain last is barely wide enough for me in my correct length. I can feel my pinky toe through the leather if I touch the sides.
    2. 363 MOD last is roomier than rain last for sure
    3. I have Oscar last in half a size bigger (sized up as I thought it was normal width) and the toe box seems wider than rain last imo. I think Rain last tapers more aggressively at the toe.
    4. Quick pic so pardon the quality - Rain last on left side of pic, 363 MOD on right side of pic.

    I'd go for UK 8. Sizing down to UK 7.5 would be risky business. If it's too roomy you could always wear thicker socks or insert an extra insole.

    I agree, Rain last is quite narrow around the toes; the Forest last fits me very well while the Rain last is too narrow for my toes.

    Agree with this completely. I measure a 6.5 E US, and I took a 5.5 UK Rain, as it's always been described as a generous fitting last, but it was just too tight up front.

    I had to size UP for the Grain jumper on the 363 MOD. Don´t know if that one was misslabeled, but it was crushing my feet from all directions.

    Are those in the same sizing? The Bonafe boots look at least a half size bigger in that pic.

    Please guys, a visual comparison is really not a great way to gauge shoe size. The eye is easily fooled. Even to measure a pair of shoes or feet correctly with a tape is something that's hard to do if you're not a professional shoemaker.

    Yes, they are both in the same size. It was a quick pic so I didn't align them with great care.

    I just came back from a 2 week holiday so I'm in a good mood. Bonus pic for you. I tried to align it to the line of the tile but as leaves mentions, it is not a great way to compare. I think it is clearer in this pic that the 363 MOD is roomier.

    Claret has more reddish brown undertones while Plum has more purple undertones. The latter is also slightly darker overall.

    In my understanding, claret is close to oxblood while plum is very dark burgundy

    Why do you not like the GG06?
