E im with you those 2 boots are miles apart, but design and aesthetic is nicer, one thing i'd like is a wider heel on the new ones and im in...

I meant not the same pieces. The ones on SuFu used to be mine smile.gif

Eck, I agree that Layer-0 has evolved well. Each season they have tiny tweaks, nothing drastic.
But they have had good designs and quality from the start.

The 6 Holes in full black cordovan are on my wish list!

My guess (based on the 988's I have) is that the slanted shaft eventually becomes straight over time as the leather on the front of the shaft creases up and breaks in. When I tried on these 988's the leather at the front above the vamp bunched up a bit which I'm guessing is intentional, to create more creasing over time.

Guidi dropping a chelsea style boot for AW13, should be a big hit with the SF crowd.

Thanks Eck for sharing new GUIDI boots. I think a perfect boot for the office, because GUIDI is so comfortable and this style looks clean and wearable fing02[1].gif

Anyone ever heard of the brand HTC? Kinda like these ankle boots, minus the metal studs that is..

Located in LA, they are cool

PM jet for more info. I had a pair of their boots long time ago. Sized .5 too big...I really liked them otherwise. I think jet still has the same pair, ankle strap boots.

Also, I'm not a big fan of chukka's, but the leather on these looks kinda nice. Paul van Hagen

Should have clicked on the brand link at the store.. HTC = Hollywood Trading Company apparently.

"Due to its cooperation with a prestigious Italian manufacturer of handicraft and 'made possible the creation of accessories with a vintage look and the rough beauty, creating an aesthetic staff and making the HTC brand for fans of vintage."

Thanks to GS for giving me the push to pick them up.
