Comipel does shell cordovan.

I got myself a pair of mmoria just to experience it first hand. First thought I had when I initially wore it was fucking clown shoes (really round last with upturned toebox). Still decided to wear it and after that, I actually ended up liking it and stopped seeing it as clown shoes but a really nice pair of work boots. But I still stick to one of my first opinions, the retail is too much for what it is.

Petrosolaum hand-sewn oil cordovan derbies. The square-ish toe is actually kind of refreshing after so many bulbous toes

Handsewn cordovan models usually clock in at around $900-$1000

McKay machine-stitched in calf about half of that, and the norwegian welted handsewn models can go up to $1500

Re MM I agree.

Petrosolaum looks pretty good, the pricing is quite attractive

slight change of topic, i am staring to consider a derby and am wondering what some thoughts are on the below 3 choices. I don't want a rounded toe (ma+/L0 are out), prefer something sleek that if i want to i can wear with a suit to a formal event. What would work best? I wouldn't get anything scarred or crazy...


guidi

a1923

ccp

I'm not a fan of Guidi's derbies, both the CCP and A1923 are great though I think I prefer the CCP slightly more

thanks bud, any particular reason you like ccp derby over a1923? I've tried on a1923 derby and it looked/felt nice. Typical a1923. CCP derbies haven't tried.

First of all, I think that matching any of the above with a "normal" suit, will be tough.  That said, the Guidi 16, which you have there, is going to look the most reasonable for a few reasons:

 

The Guidi 016 and 017 have the most traditional looking toebox and vamp.

They are wholecuts.

Though they have a whole lot less structure than say, a pair of Edward Greens, they also don't have any upturn in the toe, unsual creasing in the vamp, etc...

 

Frankly, for a true formal event, I don't know why you wouldn't get something like a pair of Edward Greens, or, a pair of boots if you are going a bit more dandy (we are doing a collab with Rider Boot soon, if that is of any interest at all), or if you want something more unusual, either go really old school with something like Vass Budapesters, or go with something like Raf Simons derbies.  

 

All of the above are really much more suited to more casual looks, like we see here.

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 :puzzled: 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?

This.  I think that the non structured toes always have "MV" as a suffix to the model name and number.

i understand this won't work in traditional sense. i have alden/carmina shell captoes for super formal events but semi casual suit or jeans/blazer thing is what i'd want. I really only wear suits to weddings/funerals and some weddings are considered funerals.

EDIT: thank you for the input...

I see, but anyway, according to Holger it's totally normal:

 

'It is normal. Duo to the piece dyed process i see a lot of this similar things. I sell guidi since almost 5 years and this is normal.

 
My biggest problem now is, i can not go to GUIDI with this "problem" because it is not a problem. What do we do now? I want help, but difficult. please advice ...'

 

I don't want to blame Holger, but this is pretty bullshit. It sucks so much if I spent €790 for one shoe with structured toe, one shoe with non-structured toe - right now it looks like I'm just fucked and neither Holger or Guidi can/want to help.
