If I am a 41 (tts) in Guidi back zips and laceups then a 41 in S45 Cdiem should be fine, right?

I've owned both horse, baby calf and kangaroo. If you want to avoid the "sock" thing you should go with horse. My baby calf back zips doesn't hold shape too well (like they've strected a little beyond the outer sole)

Thanks for this. I'm a 40 in CP achilles, and the 40 in CP black derby crepe sole this season were too tight. I usually sit right at 7.5us for shoes, so a 41 in DVN might work out well for me.

you are probably a 39/40 depending on how snug you like things
post #4416 of 15111
no, you're probably closer to a 40/41. the s45s don't run that big. just go tts and if you need an insole, use one.

If you are a 41 in current Guidi models- you need a Cdiem 40.

I'd like to avoid the leather sock thing.



I tried on this pair of Guidi's in horse and found them to have a much more defined shape than the reverse unlined ones. They're also lined which gives them a bit more definition I think. Also having the internal toe cap also helps.. otherwise you can end up with those punched-in toes that some older Guidi's have. Fine if you're into that look.. just not my thing.

This is the pair I ordered (same style as above I believe, also in horse):

Thanks guys. Very helpful.

I'm actually looking into lace ups like 995 or 991. Forgot to mention that. But I'd think that the leather used on those would be the same with the same properties, right.

I just picked up some Avantindietro ankle boots in reverse cordovan from Hide-san.

Is this pair grey or is that just the pic quality?
