    Also curious. After speaking with multiple retailers and trying a few pairs on I'm realizing that even the +1/+2 sizing advice is arbitrary. I'm a size 42 and I've tried on 43s that are too tight, 43s that are just right and 44s that are too big.

    I think ultimately I will go with a 43.5.

    Does anyone have any photos of Guidis made from the 'cordovan cont' that aren't the hiking book? Is cordovan cont the same as reverse cordovan?

    ^ if i'm not mistaken, cordovan contrario and reverse cordovan are just reverse horse (not shell). that's what mine are.

    Those are terrific. I'm thinking about buying a pair of derbies made from the contrario. Is the colour of the stitching pretty true in that photo? What colour is it in less severe, natural light?

    sorry that was an iPhone shot, updated above with better daylight pics^

    the stitching is indeed natural/white but it's not so obvious, especially when they get a little dirty.

    I suspect this had already been asked, but aren't Guidi outsole's pretty long for the size their supposed to fit?

    For example:
    I'm a true 44.5 (28.5 cm foot) and since most guys recommend sizing up 1.5 to 2 in Guidi, I'd want a size 46. Now, what confuses me is that my perfectly fitting sneakers measure 12", while Guidi's in size 46 (which people claim is my size) measure 12.5". Aren't the Guidi's gonna be too long or do boots in general have a longer outsole than sneakers?

    Thanks

    Edit: just saw TW's post above

    Re: cordovan cont. IMO the best leather the Guidi makes boots/shoes with. I'm not 100% sure if it available for the zip boot models, it as was not possible a few years ago.

    ^it is great. definitely a different beast (ha) than baby calf and the like. much thicker/more substantial but still soft and pliable.

    I am quite sure Cordovan is available for lace-up´s only. I remember the cordovan cont was super amazing and sold out in my local store, but a big re-order is coming soon ...

    each stitching is different on each style, ask the store to send you a pic in the exact size you want [​IMG]

    matter of taste. cordovan full grain is smooth and clean. cordovan cont is decent reverse AND clean. google "guidi cordovan cont"

    I'm a US 11, and those boots are a 45. C, I got your PM but I don't have a tape measure right now, so based on my own experience, I'd just say size up two. I probably should have taken a 46, is what I mean - pretty low toebox

    I sized up 2 for sidezips, and they were way too big, sized up 1 on 995s and they're perfect. Try them on, or get an idea, or find a place with a good return policy.

    I'm a US9/42 and my 44's are definitely a bit longer than my other shoes/boots, but the rest is tight -- feet don't slide at all.

    i went up 2 and actually probably could have gone up 2.5 whatever that means.
