    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.

    I don't think I would be in for the green elastic. Reddish brown sounds like it would match up nicely. As for last I only have one pair of bonafe shoes so I am ok with whatever the suggestion is. I have pretty average feet.

    Hey @Leaves , I was wondering, since I'm flat footed, which of the shoe brands have a rather good stiffener on the side of the shoes and a rather deep foot bed so I can take the insole out and stuff my insole in? Because if the foot bed is too shallow then when I put an orthopedic insole in, the instep rises so high I probably won't be able to tighten the laces properly and end up with a huge V, not to mention a whole lot of painful walking.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm intrigued.

    Sole options: Millerghime sole like on the current Jodhpur boot? Sleek and still rubber for grip. Could even do single Dainite.

    Let me think about this. I wasn't planning on a Chelsea, but with two pairs or Bonafè, I'm now a fan.

    Anyone game for a Norvegese wholecut on the 946 like the shoe on the left, but in a chestnut or gold museum calf:

    EDIT:

    @laufer @MRMstl

    Have you guys seen Carmina's Jodhpur, with the buckle down by the ankle? I think that looks slightly better, as the buckle would be visible below the cuff.

    Any chance the other two would switch to the mh71 like last?

    Other way around. There's no 2102 last, only 2102B.

    I'm not sure that a VERY chiseled toe box works as well to my eye, but I'm open for discussion.

    Both the 804 and the 062 (see EB thread for black austerity brogues posted by @Stefan88) would make that a nice looking boot.

    The 8675309 last has too sharp of a slope to my eye; still a good looking boot, though.

    I agree the 062 looks good. But I have absolutely no idea how it fits. And the description of it being more elongated than the 946 does raise a fit flag for me.

    Email Skoak. They're great with fitting advice.

    I haven't worn that last, but one of the guys there is half a size larger than me and wears an F width.

    I'm 7.5E/8D Barrie, and I'd likely size the GG06 at 7.5F UK.

    Leaves, can this code be used on stock shoes, for example the Thorpe you carry, but that are sold out in my size?
