Also do you know a place in Montreal Canada who caries Layer-0/Guidi/MA+ or Augusta?
well the backzips i played with yesterday (the ones you want to buy) had very stiff bison leather, i think he treated it with something because it almost didnt feel like leather at least not like ma+ backzips felt with bison leather, the boot is reminiscent of a1923, idk how thick it is because it is lined on the inside with something, i do doubt that its as thick as a1923 but i was impressed at how well constructed the sole is. idk who would sell this in montreal.
