I feel like Enzo's jumper boot model would be *way* better than the one showed (which looks more like a hiking boot), but that's just me.

74945, Norvegese on the commando sole as shown would be perfect.
A jumper on 74945 is quite odd though, no?

I could see it work very well on a monkey boot as well on 173 or 375. A lined chukka on 173 last for fall/winter/spring?

You may be correct but I don’t particularly care for those lasts. I’ve tried them and they just don’t work for me.

Here's my hippo jumpers on the 74945 with a norvegese welt in the jumper pattern. Personally I think they're near perfection. With a similar highly textured material like that bison nubuck, I think it would look great.



So yeah nubuck bison (except with non-blind eyelets and/or speed hooks) on this pattern, without the captoe would be pretty awesome I think.

Hippo feels quite a long way from the bison though; they do look better than I guessed though.

I'd like it all standard eyelets.
Chain norvegese 360
74945 last (or 173, 375, 363mod)

Captoe or not? I guess not since it will just break up the pattern...

I still think a chukka in it would be sick, but I guess that the leather might be too rugged to really work on anything but a boot.

If you want some highly textured chukka inspiration:



I think the nubuck bison would look great on a 74945 chukka with a 180 norvegese welt. The above are my hippos on the 946.

Please can you stick with the proposal to find out whether it can gain the support necessary for GMTO? The result of this will be that there will not be enough for neither boots, nor chukkas ... .

Also, a few pre-orders up now on Skoaktiebolagets website. Two lazy men in the new L-last, as well as a Kingsley in Utah calf...

Anyone who bought the lazy man first time around and could share their experience with fit would be very welcomed!

Same size as in a Oxford or better to size down?

^that is a classic makeup. I was thinking of putting in for a MTO with the Etrusco calf, but couldn’t decide on the style. Perhaps a loafer. Any ideas for an Etrusco calf GMTO?

A handwelted loafer in Etrusco would be tempting, especially style 645 (like the Color 8 cordovan model currently for sale) on the 74945 last.
