    Just impulse bought some Julius boots, same sole and general shape brad-t posted but grey backzip. I've been looking for some winter boots, I think the lugged soles will work!

    They're these but in size 4, they were used but maybe just tried on... they looked brand new in the pics. And they were on sale for $350. I might have them dyed black, will have to see what they look like in person.... I'd probably rather have black to begin with but I'd bet I can get them dyed black for less than the $700+ more I would have had to pay for new black ones. IF I could even find them in my size, I got big feet.

    really like the tall boot


    looks to me like the leather is a bit dry, i think putting some saphir on it and brushing may solve the issue. Nevertheless, we have a thread for this: shoe care thread post the pics there, the guys are really knowledgeable and will give you some other ideas if there are any

    Actually, it looks like natural variation in the leather. They should have used leather than looked the same as the rest of it, I'd send them back.

    That's kind of the fun of Guidi leather, though - there's a lot of natural variations in the leather they use. They're not dress shoes, enjoy the slight imperfections and wear them hard. If you really care about that kind of thing, you need to buy in person or buy shoes from a brand that uses a perfect hide every for every shoe.

    I'd love to, except I won't find them anywhere in Minnesota :/

    It's just funny I did not notice that for months until today when I took them out to polish them. As long as it's a natural variation not something I caused it, I am fine. Thanks for the input guys :)

    Leather texture on the double zips looks so good!

    Speaking of A1923, how does the reverse lama ankle boots fits ? I'm a 41,5 in Guidi (real 40,5).

    @artishard116, how do the WJK boots compare to the original? Never had the chance to compare them side by side....

    I'm no expert but they definitely felt in the same league to me. Both rock solid. The only carpes I've handled are my current ones which are shell, so sort of a different experience than the cow/horse on the wjk/jun.
