While those sneakers may not be for everyone, the toe box is not bulbous IRL. Here is a pic from almost a year ago (here):
bowling shoes much? :/
Lots of cool photos on this thread. It would be helpful if everyone would include the full make, model, year, color info on their shoes along with the photos. Also where you got them would be nice. I'm gradually climbing from the $500-$750 boot level to $1K and would like to become more educated about the brands.
Are Carpe Diems a better option than Guidi? There are some nice looking models of Guidi available new for $1000 to $1200.
The Archive in SF has a lot of Guidi so I plan to stop by and check them out when I can find some time. I usually wear a 43 or 10. The Archive recommended I go with a 44 because Guidi run small.
I'm a 43.5 and the 44 was just a smidge tight for me for the backzips at the Archive so I would bet that 44 would be perfect for you. (I ended up deciding that I covet the frontzips at cruvoir too much to justify the backzips, not that I can really afford either :/).
Anyone have advice on Cdiem sizing?
