Looking to pick up a pair of Guidi 988s, has the sizing gotten more consistent now or still hit or miss? If I'm a 43 would a 44 work?

Any recommended EU/JP stores that might be able to take advantage of the strong dollar? Hide-m? Others?

I think you'll find it cheaper in EU given the deduction in VAT. Imports to Japan end up costing more unless you're willing to buy used.

You're right, EU is the way to go. Also looks like it's uncommon to see 44+ sizes in the Japanese stores.

Guidi question.

So I know the "MS" part in the Guidi 988MS name means they lack a toe cap, but are they necessarily "worse" than other Guidi boots? Would appreciate some insight here.

anyone please help differentiate Guidi model 986 vs 986M? Does the M denote structured toebox vs unstructured one? As i've seen MS models that have a softer toebox. If someone could help decipher and offer some insight it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

nvm. i'm a dumbass. M means Man. As in - this is a men's style shoe.

i’m relatively new to artisan footwear, but I had a question about some boots I was eyeing:

are these boots actually carpe diem? The reason I ask is because I am having trouble finding the exact model, as well as this boot in particular not having any paneling in the middle like most carpe diem boots do
