The Official Artisanal "streetwear" footwear (boots, shoes, sandals) thread (Guidi, CCP, Augusta, M.A.+, M Moria, Carpe Diem, etc..) - Page 549post #8222 of 216879/24/13 at 12:34pmpost #8223 of 216879/24/13 at 12:56pmpost #8224 of 216879/25/13 at 10:55amTrying to decide on purchasing these A1923 waxed boots..
These are size 10/43 and fit my size 9 US/42 feet with a bit of room but with thicker socks it should be perfect.
If I get these, CCP diagonal zips in scarred horse cordovan will have to wait..

or cop the cdiems/avantindietros posted before, now those are timeless...post #8231 of 216879/26/13 at 9:31ampost #8232 of 216879/26/13 at 10:19ampost #8233 of 216879/26/13 at 12:34pmQuote:
Thanks guys, CCP will wait and I found much better price for the same A1923 boots done in culatta horse with slightly better finishing that I liked more (partly oiled culatta) that I'm aiming to get.post #8234 of 216879/26/13 at 2:55pmQuote:Originally Posted by Steel28
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I havent posted in a bit. But the first question to ponder is do you want a lace up or a zip? You are comparing boots in the same aesthetic but different look. For lace-ups, i recommend layer-0 over a1923 based on the price + quality comparison. A1923 is getting out of hand price wise. For zips, you have many options. If sticking to the italian designers there is MA+, CCP, Guidi, all are great choices.
I feel that for the way you are dressed in the above pic you should go for a lace up. I may be wrong its just my first impression.
Other boot thoughts:
I am on a trip in Europe and have stopped by a few merchants. I wanted to give a few quick thoughts (mostly focused on footwear).

- Degli Effeti (rome) - pretty boring, had a lot of old season works. The only impressive things were the m_moira boots.
- motelsalieri (rome) - did not see anything cool, saw some aldens and trickers
- PN/P Firenze - I walked in here and i was like a kid in a toy store. Lots of amazing current selections. Layer-0 is quiet impressive, Guidi collection is huge as well. The rubberized guidi laceup were almost triple sole thick, and i fit a 45. Marco (i believe the owner) was super cordial and remembered me from the emails.
FYI, i came in in sneakers and shorts looking like a tourist snooping around. Marco came over to say hello and explain a bit about the brands because I guess he gets tourists walking in and not getting why shoes/clothing look they way they do. He also told me he is expecting a1923 soon and we had a laugh at the "supposed" arrival times (early october). Anyways i am not decided on a a pair of layer-0 but if any of you folks ever had reservations about buying from PN/P i say forget the reservations. Additionally, compared to the above 2 stores, I felt much more welcome. I guess its a Tuscan thing but it made a difference.
Cheers from Florence SF folk
