    So I've been thinking more and more about the infamous Buttero boots.

    [​IMG]

    Overall I still think they're a killer deal but there's a few things, for me, that make them less than perfect:


    • For one thing, I think I mis-sized haha -- probably could have gone up half a size, but then I would not have gotten such a good deal. Either way, though ...
    • ... the profile is, IMO, too narrow. It's a very sleek shape but I'm beginning to learn that sleek shoes that are tucked tend to look a bit dainty. I'm beginning to understand why so many boots a-la Carpe Diem have such bulbous toe-boxes.
    • A bit higher would be better for tucking, I would appreciate one or two holes higher.

    Basically I am dreaming of these.

    ^Having owned both, I think they both work in different contexts. The butteros are made from lighter leather that has this cool dark blue-gray sheen that the carpe boots lack, and are pretty light/comfortable. The carpe boots look slightly off with skin-tight pants because its the opposite end of the bulbousness spectrum, at least imo. The carpe's are like twice as heavy, so they can take a long time to break in. The carpe's low instep feels much more solid and fixes your feet in place better than the butteros do. I also spent 4x as much on the carpes than the butteros though, so there you go.

    Well yeah those Carpes are quite bulbous in the toe, maybe too much so. But something like that with a slightly sleeker toe would be the perfect boot IMO.

    Those are really truly amazing looking and may very well be perfect.

    If you can find them new, my guess is 1250-1650usd. Used 800-1100usd.

    I got these a few weeks ago from yahoo jp

    ^^ you almost never find those. so when they surface, people just jump on them. the premium we're paying for these CD boots is due to the rarity now a days. crazy shit - i know! those are grail boots for many, including me. :brick:

    Iono, Eck, I've seen them go for much higher. A few months ago a BNIB pair of those shells sold for 250000 JPY.
