wow those boots are great. So unique. nice job
I take that as a good thing
My guy literally opened it how I pictured everything. He said to sit down because i probably would be shocked. I think 2 other guys jaws dropped
Thanks Ejirardo! April 5-7th is when Bontoni is back for trunk show.
Ejirado and jk = the Bontoni mafia trying to hook other shoe tragics up to their personal drug.....mission accomplished!
haha i know right. so excited to rock these bad boys tomorrow. keep your eyes on the rock your sock thread
I have two more pair coming and then I plan on sitting back and watching Justin over take me
I can never take over! (Even though I want to) Financially my card is a little tired but can take a sigh of relief for a bit.
What other pair you got inbound? I know you got the split toe coming
haha the key is pacing yourself over the long haul. I have a pair of single monks in dark brown suede called the Ambassador that I ordered at the end of October. Should be here soon. Nothing to fancy. Here is a pic of the style.
Those are nice, what color you get?
Its hard to pace my dude. Theres so many I want and its hard to decide so my will power goes out the window and I get too many.
I can relate to that there are a number of models that are just to nice not to have.
I'm going with a Dark brown suede in the single monks.
Would you read their posts? Total addiction!
At the last Bontoni trunk show I was at, I was talking to Lewis one of the owners and he told me that a number of his clients are taking some of their shoe styles and asking for them in boot form. It got me thinking that this pair is similar to a shoe I used to own called the Barbarini, a stitched wing tip oxford Here is a pic. Anyway, I'm now thinking about all of the possibilities with respect to turning a pair of shoes into a boot.
I wanted a wing cap toe in a boot but Franco suggested it would be mixing too much formal and informal styles together and I saw what he was saying.
It definitely opens up the possibilities. I think a style they do well is their monk straps. I know peoples first reaction will be the triple but I mean even their single monks are pretty badass
Where do you guys order the MTO Bontonis with last modifications? From the website or there are some other ways? I really enjoy some styles but their RTW lasts doesn't fit me as well as let say Vass or others.
I have my foot meatherment done by Alexander Maftei for the bespoke shoes.
