 Yeah, that's kind of the reaction I expected!    You are of course, so correct.  But I'm anal and OCD if that explains anything.  We'll see how it goes...
I have committed heresy or a sacrilege on my Long Branch boots.  I pretty much only wear boots and I was getting pretty frustrated from having to hurriedly remove my boots at the TSA line when travelling. I didn't want to wear shoes and I considered Chelsea boots but couldn't quite get into them. So I arrived at side-zip boots.  But none of the brands I like and/or am knowledgeable about have side-zip boots.   I considered some nicer Italian boots (Marsell, Buttero, MMM,...

Alright already...
Speaking of Guidi, wearing them today...
