    I still think Buttero is highly underrated on SF. Not considered 'baller' price wise but the pairs I had were awesome for the ridiculous $200 or so I got them for.

    Yeah thanks.

    Did not know there was that much of a price different in these price ranges as well. Was expecting all to be within the 1k+ $$$
    So Carpe and Augusta are probably $1.5-2k?
    Will definitely research more before kopping

    Sorry, they're only like $400 or so, not $700+ as this thread is primarily about.

    ^See if I were in the market for Guidi lace ups, I'd strongly consider getting ^those instead. Not only due to the side zipper for day in/out but because they're half the price too. Guidi's leather is definitely *nicer, but the lace up/side zip Buttero is pretty much impossible to beat at that price point IMO.

    The W+H service boots are the only other boot around that price that I loved as well, but they're a different aesthetic that the Butteros.





    *I'd actually consider picking up a pair of those Butteros from Barneys if they still had a 41 in stock. Is Buttero sizing still ABSURD? I had a pair of size 40 Butteros at one point that had a 30cm outsole and were definitely best for a true 41.5-42.

    RE Guidi:

    In terms of the their "sleekness" as is being discussed, it really depends on the model. The back-zips do indeed have a low toe-box and while it depends on the leather choice, the most commonly offered leathers are the softer ones. This is part of the boot's design. They are supposed to, in effect, mold to your foot and also create the creased look of the back-zip that comes with wear. That makes them look tough or better yet "badass". You most often see pictures of them brand new and they really do develop a lot of character once worn in. The other styles offered by Guidi are usually more structured.

    About the reasoning behind Guidi being talked about a lot; there are factors other than price (though that is a part of it for sure). Out of the brands usually discussed in the same breath as Guidi (i.e. Augusta, Layer-O, etc.), Guidi is (IMO) the easiest to integrate into a wide variety of wardrobes / aesthetics. The reason Suspension Point chose to carry Guidi is very much related to this. The other designers carried by us fall into the modern / clean aesthetic, but Guidi fits in well. The label retains the artisanal / tough feel I think grounds / enhances an outfit without becoming an element that overpowers.

    Nice. I dont see why there is hate for the tuck. If you are 6' or taller, tucking seems fine.
