What do you think of these?

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

They were around 550/600 USD with taxes before sales, now they're at 50%. Decent for 300 USD?

 

Is this buffalo hide?  Looks pretty good, especially at the price.

Looks far too clean and smooth for buffalo.
Buffalo usually has far more texture.

looks like reverse calf, buffalo has way diff grains

Vertice lists them as cracked bison.

Bison, buffalo, same thing.

Not to be a dick but in terms of taxonomy I'm pretty sure that buffaloes and bison are different animals. shog[1].gif
As others have pointed out it's probably reverse, not "cracked".
Anyway, I wouldn't be terribly concerned about the actual price you paid, as long as they're not your run of the mill boots and you think they are worth posting. Grats on your purchase.

anytime anyone starts a phrase with that, it usually leads to something bad, but in your case you are all good biggrin.gif

Don't worry, you're not being a dick, I was not specific enough.  It depends what human language and dialect we're speaking and which genus and species the hide are from, and ultimately we don't know.  Species-wise, American bison (Bison bison) = American buffalo.

 

It's also unrelated, but there's always this article to read whenever talking about buffalo.

Not creating new patterns doesn't stop anyone from using old patterns.

Fuuma, please leave common sense out of this.

So good..

Some parts were not completely dyed, so it has this blue-ish pale color peeking through. Not sure if I should do anything about it.

The age old question: to vibram or not?
I received my pair of Guidi 988 and have been wearing them fresh out the box.
Put heel taps on them today after a few wears.
Going to wear them like this for a bit then perhaps vibram.
Def helps with the traction.

Is there a good reason to not add? Better resale value and less worrying. I usually add a vibram heel and a thin topy rubber sole to most of my leather soled boots.

If you notice the difference between vibram and topy, you're paying too much attention to the bottom of your shoes.
