Thanks, yes Karl and team does very well with their advert on IG. Do you size up half from Enzo’s?

Yeah I have a couple of Vass. I think they’re really well constructed, attractive shoes and there is a fantastic MTO programme (Ascot Shoes does a fantastic job with publicity). They are generally pricier than Enzos though, at least in my experience. The Vass lasts are also really beautiful, as many people will tell you. I’m more partial to Vass mainly because Enzos don’t fit my feet that well.

It’s a bit more complicated than that because I wear different sizes in different lasts. Best if you ask one of the retailers directly for advice. But I actually size down by half for Vass compared to my regular size (at least on the U and K lasts).

Does anyone have recommendation for size13 wide width? Can’t seem to find any retailers that offers it. Is ed et al MTO worth the $300?

Not sure if i can post this here but assume so since others have done so too.
Looking to sell a pair of black loafers from Mango Mojito size 43 which do not fit too well on me. Was purchased 3 months ago and have only been worn 2-3x.

If interested let me know. Nice slim design, blake stitched and the leather is nice and soft calf skin.

Bumping up for awareness. Anyone keen?

Just running a quick interest check on a MTO that i'm considering:

Maker: Enzo Bonafe (through Seamless)

Type: Chukka (I'm open to the possibility of this being a wholecut chukka)

Last: Tentatively 946 or similar (up for suggestions)

Welt: norvegese

Sole: single leather with vibram/topy

Leather: Plum museum or claret museum

Others: Braided laces

Would anyone be keen in this?

Thanks!
74945 UK6 fits well, 946 UK6 too tight on the toes..

@wiz, are you a UK6.5 for most Enzo lasts? I'm a UK6.5 for most EB except 804. And I wear a EUR40.5 for U last and EUR40 for F last.

Not sure any of you been to this shop at Taka... the shoes design looks decent but tried two of them didn’t like the feel.... this brand is confusing with combined of Japan and Indonesia origin .,.? So is japan or Indonesia ??? The price is reasonable for the GYW shoes with the design.

Saw this shop early this year and went in to take a look. This is a Jap brand and shoes made in Indonesia. Did not like the finishing and last + the sales people was not able to provide more information. I think the Spainish makers offer more value and perhaps even some of the locals.

Anyone going for The Quarters' launch in end May? Seems like they will be showcasing their Carlos Santos shoes and also handmade ties from FRUI. First time hearing of the FRUI label, but the quality and finishing looks good, seems quite comparable to Vanda Fine Clothing.

Went to see in person over the weekend. The lasts and designs don't really look good in person. The leather seems similar to those from Vietnam makers. Any idea where they source their leather from?

The sales look tempting for some pairs!

Unfortunately being a uk size12 there aren’t much selection in the sale section. Aiming to get the barkers Winsford! 38 pounds from free shipping sigh
