Man oh man! Great pics. Thanks so much for sharing.

I am all over that boot with the side lace.



Also kind of in love with the slip on in red (a bit bold for me but still a thing of beauty).

Speaking of slip ons, I could be very wrong about this and it could just be your average run-of-the-mill Italian slip on, but I could have sworn that Christoph Walz's character was wearing these Guidis in the scene where bond is getting drilled (not a spoliler) towards the end of Spectre. I almost took a pic of the screen it was so similar.



Thinking about wearing my m_moria mid/low boots that just came back from Willie's tomorrow for an overnight in NYC. I put a foam insole in them and the feel pretty comfy. But, you know, The City can be a brutal place with new shoes on.

Do the hidden lace sneakers only come in the horse leather?
Is that white one painted?

I think you can ask for the new deer leather for any sneaker. All m_moria shoes are hand painted.

It is really nice IRL. Single leather that goes from shell to non-shell from toe to shaft. I ordered it with some customizations.
Red slip-on was women's. Glad you like the pics!

The new heel design. Vertical stacking. Looks awesome!

Thank you for posting these, @uzairh. Fantastic pictures of masterful creations. The tightness and consistency of that welt are incredible, and the vertical heel design is mind-bending. These kinds of details define his pieces. Simple and amazing. I don't even know what to order next. Something, though, definitely something. I do like that side-lace boot, but it looks like there's a Chelsea-type boot in there somewhere, too, which I'm certain is not your average Chelsea. 

Nice to know that he seems like a good person, too. I like supporting good people, and wearing their insane shit.

C shape high boots look fantastic

 


What were these? They look kind of hikery

Yes it is a Chelsea boot. They may not be an option anymore; the improved/replacement design is the hidden lace boot.

1930's Boxing style sneakers. I found them to be OK at first, but they look really nice when worn. This particular model was in shell cordovan.

hidden lace boot looks cool, would love to see more pics.

only the C type stuff and a few of the A types interest me. I think C most resembles his previous work, of course. tyvm for the pics. but they are just way too expensive to consider atm.

My Guidis are going in the mail today and I'm thinking about selling my Carpes peepwall[1].gifshog[1].gif

I wonder how that translates into actual wearing.  Soles are generally aligned horixontally for a reason.  The soles are further compacted together and their integrity helped by gravity.  It would seem that a vertically stacked sole would be much more likely to experience a lot of horizontal stress that could result in the sole splitting as  the weight of the wearer compresses the sole.  I'm not even sure how a sole like this can be properly nailed.  Would be interesting to see what is done to prevent or at least mitigate these problems.  

 

As an art object, these are very interesting, but my understanding, from the little I know, is that Altieri is not interested in creating things that are not really meant to be worn, and fairly hard.

how do we do the person tagging thing? would be good to ask DW about it.

My guess is it depends on the cut of the leather and the way that the fibres line up.

Are you using the rich text editor?  If you are, then typing "@" and then starting the username should bring up a dropdown list of users.

 

If you are using the old BBCode editor, you need to put the username between [@] and [/@]

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

All your points are exactly what I was thinking.
Can't see how the integrity of the heel is maintained.

Also once that thin bottom layer wears off, the friction exerted on the heel as you walk would almost pull the vertical layers apart.....

And I'm not sure how you'd vibram those considering a cobbler has to shave down the heel slightly to balance the height....

It's exactly the opposite that. He wants and designs his stuff to be worn hard and on a daily basis.

I received multiple requests for more pics of the hidden lace boot. I don't have any more to share, but I'll try and post some when mine arrive.

BTW, there has been a topic of contention that comes up every so often which I want to address:
Did Simone Cecchetto of A1923/Augusta work for Carpe Diem? Answer! (Click to show)
Nope. This is from Altieri himself. Case closed.

You misread LA Guy's post, there were two times 'not' :p

LOL! Yes, my mistake and thanks for pointing it out. Edited post; sorry!
