    Not a chance in this world.
    I personally hate roo for footwear.
    Bison and horse are my favourite leathers by a long shot.

    I've heard that before regarding shoes that have an incline in general, not ccp in particular. It may be an insole, arch or incline issue for you. What you can do is take the boot to a cobbler and have him shave down the back heel and rebalance the boot.

    Guys, I know this is all happening a bit fast for me as I'm still awaiting delivery of my CCP derbies from The Office. But I'm considering ordering a pair of Guidi 698s in reverse horse from Hide-m.

    Holger says it's a two month wait. Is there a quicker way or are they just sold out?

    Also, is there a better side zip to get that's under $800 Euros?

    Thanks.

    2 month is nothing- Lord Tassos has me at over 14 mos right for a particular leather jacket.

    Holger = Guidi.

    At 800 euro? no.

    A1923 is making a mean side zip for AW14 (It will cost you closer to 2kusd)

    Maybe try to hunt down a pair of Cdiem S40M or S21M (back zip)

    Hmm, those are beautiful but I kind of like the pointier toe of the 698. And the side zip is more my style.

    I haven't really been able to find much Cdiem online outside of eBay.

    Is the 698 in reverse horse, black, a good all-around boot? I like the reverse as I don't want to baby them as much. Looks like they could take more of a beating.

    Thanks so much for your input.

    698 is a great boot- i actually prefer it over the 988. No idea regarding reverse horse- never handled it. I'd probably opt for full grain soft horse or whatever it's called nowadays.

    You need to hit up rakuten or yahoo auctions for Cdiem.

    /\/\ Guidi 698 is not pointy by any means. They are very rounded IRL.
    Reverse or regular, Guidi's can take a beating.

    Well, now he's throwing these 696s in the mix. Man, such a tough call.

    Guidi zip boots need to be at mid height. I personally can't stand the ankle height zip boots.

    Thanks all. I do appreciate your experience in all of this. Trying to not be a pest but I had to ask.

    Edit: Just ordered the 698s in black reverse horse.

    Pics in a couple months. :)

    Thanks again.

    Beware of Guidi if you have anything but narrow/narrow-regular feet. Every pair I have tried has this weird ridge all along the interior of the shoes, that sticks out all along the border. If your feet are not narrow you will always feel the ridge and it's super annoying and/or uncomfortable. Never felt anything like it in other shoes/boots from any other brand.

    ^^Thanks for that tip. My feet are 4" or 10cm wide. I have often though that was wider than normal but I've been able to fit into some rather narrow boots as of late.

    I'm curious, I've never owned any reverse horse leather. Is it more susceptible to water?

    That would be great except that would completely increase the price. Are there any similar boots to guidi's style that I can get in size 15?
