my experience: i own a1923 back zip reverse calf boots, they came pretty stiff but after a week of wear the toe box came down and the boots were pretty good to go, i added a taco insole because the inside is really stiff but i wear thick socks with them and everything works out well. you can always put in super feet insole or something like that and wear with thin socks for extra comfort. overall not much break in required in my experience but i am sure this is different from model to model.

I had the Augustas pictured below and I sold them because they were quite uncomfortable. The toe box was huge, but the instep was very low, felt awkward. The low instep meant I couldn't an insole inside and the boots felt very stiff even after a couple weeks of wear. The tall and comparatively narrow shaft meant it took me like five minutes to get both boots on. I've tried on zipped boots that fit better, but I'm not going for a tall lace-up ever again.

I really like the design of Augusta and some CCP boots, but Guidi and Carpe/Jun are definitely a lot more comfortable for me to wear. From my experience, the CCP cordovan derbies and whatnot are uncomfortable enough to unwearable

some of the older Augusta models I've tried were absolutely brutal- oddly enough I found the CCP tornado (sbuc leather) to be the most comfortable boot I've tried on out of the box. Cdiem needs to broken in; S23M almost broke my foot when I sized down.

If it fits... carpe diem and attachment have been consistently the most comfortable for me. Guidi and Augusta are tolerable sized well. CCP sidezips are my most uncomfortable.

LOL lol8[1].gif wait until you receive the wool/ramie self edge blazer- will make your AW12 cotton blazer feel like cashmere.

Damn, my Guidi after break-in were pretty comfortable, recently got it topied and was much more comfortable.

Hows MA+ when it comes to comfort? Might just get those instead of Augusta.

m.a+ is super comfortable ; I've sized down and gone TTS- for me TTS with an thicker insole (spenco comfort rx) works best.

Last 2 seasons for A1923 have been the best fitting IMO.

Great question about m.a.+ (They look comfy), I'd love to know about layer 0 too. Yeah carpe and attachment just feel so awesome on the feet like it was made to conform to mine anyways. Feels like I have no problem standing and walking around them in all day, though hours 10+ at a festival or after mile 10 walking around all day in SF... everything hurts even carpe frown.gif

Julius sneaker boots are comfy too, but I don't know if those count since they are well sneaker soled.

RE: wool/ramie.. fuck yes Eckblk smile.gif Looking forward... my cotton blazer is starting to break in and soften up frown.gif Tragedy incarnate imo. I love my stiff armor-like fabrics.

Very curious to see how the virgin wool english tweed vs this so-called washed wool twill pans out for our other August AW13 blazers. I still feel like they MUST be the same fabric, but... we'll see.

Layer-0 is not comfy at first, they are really stiff and require some break in (i tried on a pair of lace up boots and the back zips). i can only assume after some wear they will be better
post #8846 of 13015
I find MA+ to be comfortable right away, and even after years of use they hold up well. Depending on the leather used, Augusta/A1923's can be far more difficult to break in. I have a pair of derbies made of horse that are still slightly uncomfortable after more than a year of owning them. Guidi's are usually fine right out of the box, as long as you get the right size.

MA+ comphort! A1923 reverse calf ankle - also super comphy! Layer-0 that i have tried (lace ups snd backips) seem to be comphy as well... Dont know bout ccp

Protip: Different models by different brands have different levels of comfort and fit.

 

Even with Augusta sneakers I've had wildly varying fits between different leathers.

Yeah good luck getting those on your feet in a timely manner

For anyone that regularly wears boots like that, please share your secret to getting in your foot.. I can't do it even with a giant shoe horn
