I've got the same boots. You're right about the support. Well, maybe it depends on the leather. Mine are lamb; pliant and soft. Not for running in that's for sure. As for the laces, how do you mean they go up? Ocassionaly they'll come loose if I haven't wrapped them right and I'll leave a thin leather tail in my wake. You aren't wrapping them around the shaft of the boot are you?
This is how mine look when laced:
Yes i have seen those mentioned. Not sure if it warrants insoles just yet but uniqlo socks are on the thin side and being a poly blend my foot sort of wiggles where sock meets leather insole plus the boot being respectively fully lined. Can Tacco insoles be cut and shaped?
they can be trimmed i guess but the insoles are very thin so you may not have to do it.
MMM side zips (cemented sole) 41
CP low achilles 41
nike / new balance size 9
tried on guidi 995 in horse - 42 way too tight. 43 felt better but still snug enough.
haven't had a chance to try on guidi 988. i hear they fit looser than the 995 since it's just a single of piece of leather - will a 42.5 work? or better to go down a full size to 42?
