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.

I think @wormwood mentioned before that due to a whirlwind of... whatever (drugs? who knows) Altieri simply might not be remembering properly?  Though that other guy who isn't much in the C-Diem style of fashion (QDR? Can't remember the name) also said Simone never worked though before, either.

 

Also, sorry if this is a bit of a rule-breaking question but I'm considering trying to sell some Carpe 7-holes that've been pretty heavily altered (professionally dyed to black, replaced the old laces with leather laces) and they're the slim-toe model with some wear and such.  Any idea what sort of price I should be trying to aim for?

Anyone bought those Moria sneakers yet? Please post some thoughts and review.

I still have room for a black pair.

I am a big fan of many of these, but I do think that the C-shape high boot is the perfect realization of the Avantindietro aesthetic. I preferred the AV_Fields to the original model, but these just seem to capture the best of all worlds.

I would love to see more images (I've seen the one on SZ, but all of the others seem to be top profile).

After buying M-Moira I would walk around feeling like i am wearing a used car on my feet YMMV.

They look GY welted to me but are you sure it isn't one of those weird Italian stitching variants?

Here is one of the world's most poorly edited videos showing the construction of a pair of backzips. (via Lift's blog)

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.

@DWFII what do you think of this vertical heel construction?

Will it be durable?

Edit: he hasn't been online for 9 days

Guidis are goodyear welted

Do Goodyear welted shoes have a McKay stitch?  I believe if you were to rip off the insole, you'd expose a McKay.

So, I got a headache just looking at that video again, and I can't tell, at about 1:35 of the video on, whether it's a Blake rapid or good year welted shoe.  Some one get an old pair, cut them open, and we'll know for sure.

A while back my cobbler decided to remove the nails on the insoles since they were getting "corroded" when I went in for a resole.  Bad pics/bad lighting but you can def. see some thick threads by the heel.

If that's the same video sinnedk posted a year ago then it's definitely Goodyear.

That's not to say they don't do other constructions but everything I've seen from guidi is Goodyear.
