    yep, copped mine in 07 from A and best boots ever

    IMO Cdiem is the OG/GOAT of all baller footwear (non-MC); Cdiem > Guidi/Augusta/MA+/CCP or any other brand

    Cop these, i like the leather more than any Cdiem I've handled

    I'm not sure where it's sourced from, but it's "bridle leather." Has a great waxy finish that looks great with wear, you buff it to bring out different shades of the leather. Amazing cool blue/grey/black color

    Bridle leather is vegetable tanned cowhide that has been finished with fats, waxes and tallow. It gets it's name from what it was originally created for - a bridle - the straps on a horse's head, to connect to the reins. It is very strong and long lasting, but more importantly, it is very beautiful and naturally produced.

    [​IMG] Wondering if anyone here has any idea how the Balenciaga chelsea boots might fit? I'm torn between sizing down (a full size) or passing.

    I got my size 44 CPs today and they fit quite nicely, length-wise. The toes, however, kind of border the top edge too closely, and sometimes even go overboard. It's annoying when I walk because I can feel some of the toes grasp on to the outer edge of the sole. Should I size up to 45? I'm just worried that a size up will only increase the base length at the heel of my foot, and not at the front where my toes are -- thus resulting in no resolution to my toe-hanging scenario.

    Sounds like a really bad idea to me
