I had to return some 10 sei 0 otto black boots from AW12 because they were too big, so I got these instead from Vertice:
I love them, and they're 70% off now! $158/€119/£102 (+ VAT)!
They have sizes 42 and 43 left, but please size down because they run a full size big (my feet are 26 cms which is a true 41, but 40 fits perfectly).
Someone said in this thread that they use Guidi leather, I don't know but it feels really nice. I don't really like burgundy boots so I put some mink oil and they darkened a lot, and turned into a dark brown that I love. I think they can be great beaters for some of you guys.
They also have a number of items at 70% off, and they have some items from Guidi AW13.
