Great. I was never alarmed by the first picture.
Almost every shoe I get looks like that before I break them in.
Your own brand is great. I am going to buy the same shoes also in brown suede.

Enjoy your holidays and spend your time with your wife and kids (?).

If you will have one day time, can you provide basic statistic of purchases. I would like to know whether you can disclose on anonymous basis nr. of shoes purchased by top 3 (or 10) buyers.

I count my purchases, I am at the moment at 20, including 3 pairs purchased as gifs.

To break the number:

Enzo Bonafé 11 (including 2 pairs for others)
Gaziano & Girling 3 (all GMTO)
Edward Green 2
Carmina 2 (including 1 pair for others)
Löf & Tung 1
Saint Crispin's 1

Sorry for the late reply. I went off the grid for a while, vacation at the summer home. Will not be checking online so much this summer. Promised the wife to wind down a bit.

Thanks for the awesome review! Please share this on Google and Facebook if I may ask that of you. A lot of clients are using those reviews for guidance.

Skoaktiebolaget has never been about a single person or staff member. It’s our core value to provide a very high level of service (and it’s not just words on a paper it’s something I really work towards every day with the team). Of course, when key personal leave it always affect quality short term but we always strive to improve.
I do not have facebook, but I tried for the first time with google. I hope, it will work.

I'm at:

5 L&T - 1 single mto
6 Enzo Bonafe - 5 single mto
1 Carlos Santos


I got another idea for the next Enzo trunk :)

Anything GMTO worthy?
I found these through google image search looking for something else, but really, really like them. I would not get the red heel cup though:


Skoaktiebolaget made an MTO ages ago and looked like this in blue:
Enzo-Bonafe-3853-Grey-Calf-and-Scheiffer-Suede-173-last-.jpg



I think the round and wide last really lends itself to a monkey boot. Chain stitch norvegese. Betis Castagna, or maybe some kind of natural CXL/cavallier if Skoaktiebolaget stocks it.


3583
375 or 173 last
Chain norvegese.
Natural colour
Commando sole
black eyelets

My make ups are generally really obnoxious, hehe.

The "Leaderboard" looks like this. For obvious reasons I cannot share any client specific details.

1. Hong Kong gentleman
2. Croatian gentleman
3. Australian gentleman
4. Singaporean gentleman
5. Russian gentleman

To my own surprise, we do not have a US client until 18th place. Which is a bit strange since its a single largest market overall outside of Sweden.

I miss Enzo Bonafe GMTOs from Skoak. I’ve several and would buy more.
It's been tough to even reach 4 these last year or so. It's some kind of mindset change, or I'm getting out priced or something by another retailer. Used to be we had 10-15 people minimum partake in GMTOs but that's more or less gone. Some Asian clients have started going directly to the manufacturers with their GMTOs or started up small local businesses to cut out retailers.
