Yeah, I would consider those Guidis a pretty good deal
i'm not against the idea of buying used shoes, but they have to be worn so little that there is no visible outline of the other person's foot. so like.....pretty much like new condition... i get foot pains easily, so my shoes need to be molded to my foot to maximize comfort.
i'm not hung up on it but if you're going to make pathetic comments like you did there then don't be surprised by a response. hopefully you don't get another eye infection from this or the drugs you've apparently gotten into lately.
the whole concept is repulsive and i have no reason to believe most people practice suitable podial hygiene
i've bought three used shoes. of the three, two had so little wear that they looked new. the last one had very slight wear on the sole, but it was a woman...so i'm going to hope for the best lol
Im ok with sleek and elegant chisel toes, like those found on the Vass U-last or Corthay Arca but a rounder black cap toe can be as interesting, I have some perforated cap toes from Georg Materna with a round toe and almost no extension of the feet (i.e. they look smaller and more natural) and they definitely have their place.
I can appreciate the kickshitter / budapester last round-toe style but I just don't see that working at all with a black cap toe. In brown, pebble grain, etc... sure. As a wingtip, plain toe derby... ok. But as a black cap toe, IMO it will just look bad - the style/color IMO just means business shoe and it calls for a sleeker last.
Nicolo Ceschi Berrini shirt
Ann D pants
Damir Doma sweater
and some Outlier shorts for the times I shouldn't be wearing that other stuff.
Edit with some better pictures:
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Wish I had some better ones of the shirt but suffice it to say it's nice .
I forgot I also ordered this Silent parka. It's so hot here that I'm not going to get to wear it for at least another 7 months, though (probably why I forgot). Probably a stupid buy since I'll probably only get a handful of chances to wear it in the winter but oh well.

Here is "fetishistically conservative"
Obviously i prefer something a bit sleeker but still with a round toe (i.e. F last), but I think these are still business appropriate as long as the lines and proportions work.
The fabric feels better than sex.
Those are nice (except for the laces )
Cotton? Cotton & silk? . . . Cotton & cashmere?
Just cotton but a very nice cotton.
Oh good one.
Edit: They're good old F+B 745s. Good for people going the OneBoot route in my nonexpert opinion.
its a long story with running shoes - but the best shoes I've had recently are The nike Lunar-Elite (what I run the majority of my miles in right now) and the New Balance 890. Go and try a bunch on and see what feels the best, and then look on the internet to get it as cheap as possible. . . . usually doable.
