    do it! I think itll be pretty awesome.

    I still need to decide on my navy but Ejirardo posted some good options for me. I think I might get the navy suede boot with the tan leather accents.

    I'm not big on wholecuts but those are fab! Especially the colour.

    Justin - You have a pair of these in Brown, but I think they look pretty kick ass in Navy. Picture from the Shoe Snob blog posting day. http://www.theshoesnobblog.com/

    That does look pretty nice. I think that I like the single monk from Marios a little better. Just a slightly different style which I dont have.

    My husband ordered his first pair of really nice shoes that just so happen to be Bontoni! We went to a Bontoni Truck Show and ordered a pair of Monk Straps in Navy Blue. Went last month, won't be getting them in till July [​IMG] What's even better is that his name is engraved in the sole! Should be a great Christmas present in July! [​IMG]

    If Bontoni turn around is true to form, it will be Christmas time at Christmas time. But worth the wait!

    My last few pairs I have received from Bontoni MTO have arrived within 3 to 4 months of ordering. Having been a customer of Bontoni's over the past five years or so I was use to the longer wait times because to me the shoes are worth it. So I inquired as to why the wait times were much shorter for my last two pairs and what I was told was that Bontoni has implemented a new policy that shoes will be ready within 5 months of ordering or there is a discount. In an effort to meet this goal they have hired more shoe makers. Take it for what its worth but someone who knows the owners very well told me this and I have seen it in action. I believe Justin received a few he ordered around the five month mark as well.

    THAT is good news. I've been quoted 3 - 4 months from one supplier and up to a year from another.

    Yea I was quoted one time for like 3 months for AS and it took 8 months. That was the longest I had to wait. My bontoni did take 6 months but Franco placed the order and was traveling before going back to place my order.
