Having both Hender Schemes and Guidis, I will say that Guidis are a billion times more durable than Hender Schemes, which are nice looking enough, but have, imo, serious structural deficiencies.

 

Guidi&Rosselini is also considerably more expensive, but imo, much better, especially in terms of the leather, which is, of course, the strength of Guidi in the first place.

Maybe, but in any case, the problems, ime, come from leather having exponentially decreasing tear strength as it gets thinner.  A thick piece of leather, say a 6 ounce of leather and above, has got a ton of tear strength.  However, you take a thin leather jacket, and it's easily torn along the seams. This is not true of wovens like canvas, and especially not true of technical fabrics like cordura, which can be very thin and very strong at the same time, because the constituent yarns themselves are so strong.  

 

The tongue of most sneakers, even leather ones, are backed by multiple layers of strong synthetics.  They are, after all, built to be functional for sports, about anything else.  Hender Scheme sneakers and boots, on the other hand, do not use synthetic components in the uppers.  So the tongue, where it attaches to the upper, is extremely thin, and really, just a single piece of leather.  It's aesthetically pleasing, but rips very easily.  As in, if you yank that tongue up, as you sometimes do a sneaker, the tongue will rip.  

 

Essentially - cotton canvas and synthetics are used in athletic footwear for a reason.  You try to make the same shoe using no synthetics, and you are bound to end up with significant weak spots.

 

Compounded with this is the fact that Hender Schemes use "raw" leather.  It's not really "raw", as in rawhide, but it starts out fairly brittle and stiff because it has not been treated with the oils and waxes that make a leather pliable.

Liking the new rubber common projects. They have already attracted dirt, any advice on cleaning? Just damp cloth?
post #52117 of 52828
Yes, a damp cloth is fine.

Nothing amazing, but it's my first one and I'm very happy with it

given what I understand about Scandanavian driver's license requirements, you probably already know how to have some good fun with it, too

Also very true, even more so since the reason I got the car was that I at the same time got a job with a 30min commute

(attempting to get to work by train/bus in the swedish winter is an all around bad idea)

 

Last winter it actually even dipped down to -25° for a few days

Thanks guys, have had it for about 2 months now and recently passed the 2-year mark for my drivers license, so yeah I'd like to think I know how to use it :)

What's special about a Scandinavian driver's license?

Long process. Known for being difficult to pass.
