    The breakthrough: at a show in town tonight (the band, White Denim), the gf leans over and rubs the toe of my new, black, Guidi 698s, in reverse horse, and says, "I love these!"

    She's been noticing a change in my wardrobe and especially in my footwear. I think she knows I'm spending a bit more than I used to. But it's moments like these where I know it's all for the greater good.

    Thanks to all you guys for always pointing me in the right direction. Tonight it all makes sense. :slayer:

    The height of the 988S I have is 21 cms. Add 3 cms more for the heel.

    So... The welting on my side-lace boots is starting to fall apart after less than a year. I'd go back to the store that sold them, but atelier is not there. Any recommendations? Just go to a cobbler?

    From the picture, it looks like the leather has torn near the welt.
    A cobbler should be able to glue it back. If that won't work, then the fix is to re-welt the whole boot (sucks I know).

    technically Atelier is re-opening, so maybe you could still contact them?

    If a person is unable to take care of his hands he's surely unable to look after his shoes properly. So no surprise that this happened.

    So, for better or worse, I figured out the problem: the welting on the right boot (the boot with a busted toe) is shoddily done, and for a solid few inches does not actually seem to exist on the inner part of the boot. Makes it significantly easier to have the outer, well, do what it did. This is reinforced by the fact that it doesn't seem to have ripped- there are no jagged lines, just a clean edge of the leather with no obvious place the stitching would have been.

    Now the questions is: does anyone have a way to contact Atelier or MA+ to get this fixed? I'm almost tempted to see if Holger would help, but he's so fucking awesome I don't want to bug him

    Instead of asking him for help just explain the situation and ask for MA+ contact info. Also archive carries ma+...

    here is atelier info from old email
    ATELIER NEW YORK
    304 HUDSON STREET
    NEW YORK, NY 10013
    T.212.941.8435

    Called Archive- they say MA+ doesn't do repairs, and don't answer their (Archive's) calls except for order time. Cobbler it is. Anyone know of someone good in DC?

    That shouldn't happen to shoes that expensive. It's a manufacturing error. There's nothing a cobbler can do about it. I would email MA+.
