    the firm has become known more for the name than anything else. they are slow as shit. i started going to an old italian guy on 27th between 5th and 6th who is much quicker, cheaper and does an equally good job.

    quality workmanship, but as far as customer service goes....

    sucks

    dude tried to not put the heel taps that they charged me for. Not to mention he was rude as fuck and pointed to an ATM and turned his back on me when I refused to pay with cash cuz I didn't have much on me. Only dude that lets me use credit card is the guy who speaks better english and isn't a anachronistic tool.



    btw, whats the name of the place you're going to? I need to have the leather re-stiched to my sole on my combats soon.

    isn't it just putting on a topy/vibram/heel taps?

    any cobbler can do it it's not hard.

    maybe


    but I trusted them cuz I knew they were familiar with rick footwear so they're less likely to do something im gonna dislike. They brought out a vibram that had the same ridges as the rick sole too, which was good. Only problem was he didnt add taps when he charged me for em...


    lets say some dude put a lugsole on my shit, I wouldnt be happy...

    Got the Augusta boots, fit perfectly, but it takes me ten minutes to put my foot into them because the bottom of the shaft is so narrow

    I hate lace-ups!!!

    so farfetch officially refunded me my order for these Ann boots I bought but customs owned me, since I know quality surpasses most brands out there ive been considering these guidi which I absolutely love.

    anyone know what model # they are? I think this is reverse horse.


    wanted the Ann boots cuz it was a non reverse leather, and I liked how you could fold the top, but thats kinda girly anyways.

    those look really nice to me, but if you really like the ann boots more you should get them

    Guidi is always insanely nice, and I think the quality of the ann boots arent as great, the sole is a bit ugly, and I dunno bout eyelets kinda cheap looking.

    I'll go to NYC and decide I guess, I'll see how much a atelier order will cost
