THE OFFICIAL "streetwear" BALLER BOOT/SHOE THREAD ***700usd Min*** - Page 789

post #11821 of 13610

I'm looking for a pair of nice lace-up boots, preferably black.

 

I came across these Carpes in Yahoo Japan:

 

http://page5.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/e145064826

 

Starting price is 45,800 yen. Does the price seem right?

 

I'm a true 41, would a 41 in those fit me?

 

Thanks in advance.

But eyelets are there to keep the leather from tearing on lace ups and for the laces to pull easier. You can get away with not having them. I think it's a good thing and a cobbler should be able to fix this for under $20 esp if you have the eyelet.

I recommend finding a very reputable cobbler because this fix requires a little bit of stitch cutting and re sowing. I had this happen to me on a boot.

 

 

Well, my cobbler told me it won't matter as long as laces are leather. The original metal eyelet can't be put back, it's so tiny and unfortunately there was something wrong with it. I didn't want a new different metal eyelet, at least not yet.

 

I already knew that Guidi and Augusta boots don't have metallic eyelets. IS by Individual Sentiments quality is awesome otherwise. I guess crazy things like this happens once a while, even though boots are new.

Odd... I had an eyelet fall out and it was too messed up. But i had the cobbler install a new one and all good.

I'm looking for a pair of boots like these:

 

 

 

 

 

So you get the idea. The IS ones at the top are too expensive for me. My favourites are the CD S23M (although S52M might be good too), but I've never bought worn footwear so I'm a bit reluctant.

 

I can't find the Butteros nor 10sei0otto anywhere.

 

I've seen WJK/Jun Hashimoto/Attachment mentioned here, and it seems those have some replicas of certain Carpe models. Is it possible to buy those anywhere?

 

My shoe size is 41 in case it helps.

 

Thank you.

LUC-PTC? what size?
post #11832 of 13610
CUL-PTC, it is reverse leather, smooth on the toebox with some very subtle scarring, and some rough textured areas on the shafts. Size 9.

I betting that's not luc-ptc. Looks more like cul-ptc or cubs-ptc

the near fisheye lens that those images were shot with is exaggerating the heel a lot, at least on the backzips.

Do those front zips have the interior/hidden platform that guidi did for a while? I assume that's why the toebox looks so tall.

And I think they've finally nailed the mountaineering boot. It looks better this season than it has in past seasons even though it's the exact same thing.
