I have taken a pair of Guidi 995s for full sole replacement, added vibrams and fixed a deep scratch on the boots all for $65.
Took a pair of Wings and Horns to get same thing done as well.
Gus charges a bit more, took some Wang boots there to get full sole and heel repaired and they charged about $80 or so.
Both places are great quality. I go to Leo's on the southside more, my grandma lives around there so that probably adds to it ha.

Heard of Gus but I read he doesn`t speak a lick of English :P That`s catastrophe waiting to happen happy.gif

I got some MMM side zips vibrammed by Gus. He did a good job, but he is on the pricey side. Didn't feel like his English was bad. He spoke enough to get the job done.

I will probably just send mine to eck`s cobbler. Do you guys lop off leather layers on the heel when adding a rubber heel so that it`s at the same height as it would without it? Kind of feel like the heels on single soled guidis are high as is

Yes- have Jesse balance the heel and sole.

Well I don't know about what's "real cordovan", or who dose "shell" etc, but I'm pretty sure that what Guidi sells as Cordovan Cont is not the same thing as Horse reverse.

looks nice and interesting! ... taller Guidi combats are worth it even though laces are so long
