Question for nicelynice:
I noticed your most worn in boot you have posted about recently in the "Contentedness Thread" looks to be a pair of Guidi lace boot. 995, perhaps? I also remember how you said lace up shoes in general versus side zips was very cumbersome during your time working in Japan due to taking your shoe on and off. Since you are purging your closet, or so it seems, do you still prefer side zips [back zips] or you find the model 995 a much better all around boot albeit lacing. I'm looking at a pair of reverse horse in the 995 model, and it will be my second pair of the same model [have reverse kangaroo currently]. I like the shape of the 995 and do not mind lacing up my shoe FWIW. Also, the price difference is upward 170Euro from 995 to boots with zips, essentially. Ankle length zip is only a bit less. Zips worth the extra premium? What about cordovan worth the extra premium?
