THE OFFICIAL "streetwear" BALLER BOOT/SHOE THREAD ***700usd Min*** - Page 426

Do C Diem boots have any identifying marks I can look for?

 

The ones I got on ebay are beautiful, fit like people have described here, but have absolutely no branding in/on them at all. They were also almost brand new, they had only been tried on and the black coating on the soles wasn't worn off. I put more wear on them in the hour I wore them around the house then they had when I got them.

 

If they are "vintage" like the seller described and made many years ago as a custom boot, it is be possible they were made by the same bootmaker that makes C Diem but not branded as such, or they may be a recreation...

 

Also, the boots I got have no rubber on the heel to wear and replace, so I dropped them off at the cobbler to get Vibram soles on both the heel and forefoot.

The are regular CDiem. S24M is the model I think. Cdiem for the most part has no branding. Some boots released in 2006 or so have a ss cdiem emblem/plate nailed to the bottom of the sole.

Everything coming for AW13 has those kind of laces- I'm sure some boots/shoes will ship with regular laces too.

Is there somewhere I can see A1923 AW13?

FWIW, those guidi laceups fit about a half size tighter than my backzips. I was surprised that my backzips weren't tighter when I got them after studying the sizing advice on here. But the laceups are more in line with what everyone says.

Did you get the regular or 'S' model in the backzips?

Mine have stretched to the point that I need a thin insole (988S).

Mine are the regular 988.

Anyone got any Augusta trainers in 43 they are trying to sell?
post #6384 of 12561

Thanks. I wish it was closer, how long is the turn around for a simple topy?

what size are you wearing for these buttero boots candrew? Never tried buttero before and all the comments certainly points out how large their sizings are. What size would you fit into for a standard sneakers, say, vans?

Sorry, they're only like $400 or so, not $700+ as this thread is primarily about.
