    The HMMM boots are TTS right? If so I'd be a 42 in those since they don't come in half sizes.

    I actually found the HMMMs to run a size small (went for a 43 when I'm a 42) but I don't think that's the norm

    if you're a half-size you can go down without a problem, but if you're a "normal" size I'd recommend tts, unless you want it reeeally snug. You might feel a size down is more comfy if you like it snug, but tts will soften up and get quite comfortable after a few wears too

    It is from 'non-brand marketplace tier' Korean style and made in China, which puts them below Uniqlo tier and I expect h&m durability. If you want weird clothes that can be desposed on your whim then okay, but do not expect something stylish or hot trend.

    If you haven't bought them already and don't need shoes right this minute, keep looking. Way more interesting derbies out there.

    If you already own them, you could make them work. They're not ugly or anything, just not very interesting.

    Pretty sure that would be false advertising if they weren't a hot trend. But seriously, there was some sarcasm mixed in. I'm looking for cheap cropped sweats, but the double strings and multicolors make those one's too unappealing, even at $15 including shipping.

    Ackord, looks like they might have a bit of that duckbill toe shape going on.

    :laugh: I was actually just looking at those as potential gym sweats. Not even sure how I found them. If I end up getting them, I'll let you know.
    Depends. If you're buying them because you like the shape and you're looking for a serviceable pair of side-zips, sure; if you're buying them because you actually want Guidis, no. [​IMG] or [​IMG] or neither?
