For some it's purely aesthetic; for others, it's convenience. And for others still, it's just what appeals to them. Do I think that $200 for a zipper is "worth" it? I wouldn't look at it like that, personally. I would look at it from the angle of "do I like it?" And if I do, do I like it enough to pay the premium?

one add, zips/pull ons are much faster to put on over lace ups

Yup - covered that in my sentence about convenience.

So I'm looking for some backzip cordovan boots, budget isn't much of an issue, but I'm 5'5 and have UK6 feet, so need something that wouldn't make me look like a complete clown. Anyone have any suggestions? I've been digging through this thread and looking at various brands, but don't really have a clue where to start!

confused, what do you mean by clown? 5'5 w/uk6 feet is fairly normal right?

either way for backzip:
a1923
guidi
cdiem
layer-0
ma+

they may not be cordovan but they all have horse leather and various optons

Fairly normal for someone my size, probably. But I meant nothing that's too high or with too big of a toebox, because it'll look completely ridiculous at my size.

 

Thanks for the brand names, I'll have a dig around and see what I can find. :)

toasty by laced guidi then add a side zip and be a fucking champion

I wonder why we never talk about Buttero? These don't seem too different from Carpe/jun/wjk ...

shape is not there...too sleek, looks like regular boots

For comparison, junhashimoto S21




I certainly prefer the jun but they similarly sleek, to me
