Sorry if this is a bad thread for this, but I think I have an issue with my new pair of Guidi boots I got from Holger Just want to hear your thoughts.
I've taken them for a couple of walks, but I'm getting significant discomfort on the my left foot. Right foot is perfect, super comfortable. It's like the flex point on the left shoe isn't right - the toe cap digs into my toes right where the shoe bends. I thought my left foot might be smaller, but I've never had that issue on other shoes. Measuring the length of my feet there's no significant difference. There is about an 2-2,5 cm of toe space (1 inch), which should be fine right? - the width seems to fit at least. Maybe they could've been a half size smaller, I don't know, but don't think it should make that much of a difference.
I was stumped. But then I noticed something. It almost looks and feels as if there is no reinforced toe on the right shoe Really, I don't know if this can be right. Seems so strange. I know it's hard to judge from pictures, but look at this..
It's obvious that the left shoe folds right where the toe cap starts..
This picture is taken after I pressed down on the toe of both shoes. Right shoe is flat, left bounces back into shape. Feels a little stiffer, too. Can't be that much of a difference between the leather structure/stiffness right?
