Picked these up for my wife (Guidi 3005 in donkey) for my wife, as part of her Christmas present (from www.hide-m.com).  Incredibly soft.  She tried them on, and they feel good even without socks.  Of all the baller boots I've tried on, Guidi are the most comfortable from the get go.

She is pretty much a 39 EU in everything.  These are a size 39.5, and they fit like a larger 39, somewhere between 39 and 39.5, according to both her and Holger.  Some other leathers may size differently.  I think that people forget this.  Guidis undergo a water bath treatment.  I've washed horsehid jackets on sorching heat, and gotten nearly no shrinkage.  On the other hand, wash calf, and you are going to get a lot of shrinkage, often up to 2 jacket sizes.

The softer leathers (soft horse fg, etc) will also stretch out nicely
Order from Holger and trust his advice is the best way to go
Wife is a 38 and she took a 38.5 in the backzips. I generally need to size up a full size in thicker leathers

Also keep in mind that hand-dyed or undyed guidi fits TTS since it isn't washed

Are all these Chinese baller-brand "stores" who seem to exist only on instagram and WeChat legitimate?

Or are they scams?

Curious because one of them has a pair I am interested in

Why wouldnt they advertise on ebay, grailed etc as well? Or have a website?

Cheaper
post #20082 of 22256
So they are legit? Have you ordered from them before?
post #20083 of 22256
What store are you talking about? There's a million of these. Chinese ecommerce is completely different than the west and they likely sell mainly to domestic customers, you might need a proxy

independent house is the one in this case
nut there are others on instagram I see post photos

Just got a reply to my WeChat: prices are high so thats a good sign I guess

Unless its because they think gwai lo are even more gullible than the locals


Says he takes paypal so I dont see why they wouldnt use grailed etc but maybe they dont like dealing with English

Are there any equivalent Chinese language sites? like grailed/yahoo japan/rakuten equivalents?
