    its the other way around moron

    go back and read, i said f&b is not made like guidi, i proved myself and brad keeps hanging on to "i was talking about only construction" but we weren't and thats the issue.

    i repeat i posted a video of a guidi's shoe making process and said fb does not make shoes like that, where was i wrong?

    even when brad asked me specifically whats different, i said the dying process....

    wtf is wrong with you ppl, can you not read? don't know how to debate? i kept proving my point and people started attacking me, thats not how you argue. In fact thats debate 101 don't attack the person, attack the topic.

    seriously get over it, you are wrong it happens.

    Well, I actually enjoyed reading this while the discussion was still civil.

    Looks like my choices are Atelier, If, and Hotovely if I wanna check out Guidis in person.

    These boots were amazingly comfortable and really just all around awesome. I do wonder how a 45 would have fit.

    in case anyone wondered, here is my augusta after a few wears and it fattened out, so if you are buying a boot/shoe that has "elf" toe boxes, that goes away after a few wears

    The Style No. 16 in kangaroo were also very comfortable in addition to looking awesome.

    I also tried on a pair of back zips and a style 16 and neither were very comfortable and the back zip just looked terrible on my foot.

    I just reread the last few pages to see if I could find an "argument" that you made to have a civil discussion, and this is the closest I could find. The "whole process"... right, now I understand :worship:. So, we've established that the materials used and dyeing process are different, but that the way they are constructed is probably very, very similar. About 95% of that video that you posted is about the actual construction of the shoes, and your original thesis was that "Look at this video, F+B shoes are made NOTHING like this!!!" So, while I make no claim to holding any particular knowledge about how either boot is made (and it seems pretty likely that you, internet warrior, probably don't know a thing about them either besides what you saw on a marketing video), you pretty obviously failed to support your claim.

    P.S. Can we please learn to spell "dyeing"--the shoes are already dead.

    WOW- to the last couple of pages.

    localman- thanks for the pics- I love seeing the different colors that Guidi uses. 312T is actually one of my favorites on the full grain side.

    This is the most hilarious thing about this whole argument - if this were actually how F+B were made, it would be far, far better than Guidi. See 1:40 onwards? shoe is handwelted. Takes about 6 hours, compared to Guidi's method of gluing on a canvas strip that they then stitch the welt to, which you can see in the Guidi video.

    Basically, you've just made a point against yourself.
    But I doubt this is how F+B construct, they probably do a similar method to Guidi.


    Correct. Common sense

    I thought initially from viewing online that I wouldn't be so into the 312T but after trying on those Kangaroo derbies I was definitely taken aback by the striking color. I would say I left H Lorenzo a big time fan of Guidi boots. It's now just a matter of time.
