    Some older looking Guidi's from Yahoo Japan.. thought the leather looked kinda interesting. Most of the new stuff is all black, grey, and white.. except for that new burgundy that is.

    If anybody is considering the older style Guidi's (w/ RiRi zips) They are more less TTS, no need to size up.

    Sadly, I have to sell the one pair of Augusta's I bought (off eBay). Thought I could make the larger size work with a thick insole but after some walking around outside they're just too loose on me. Sucks because I've been trying to find a quality pair of boots with in this color forever, and goddamn the leather on these is nice. I'm now an Augusta convert.

    Someone mentioned earlier it's OK to post appropriate personal sales here since this stuff is hard to find? If not, lemme know and I'll nuke this from the post.

    ^^ you can just order some Guidi 698 in that color. Pick you leather type too. Maybe col 6?

    Cool, thanks for the swatches. It's a good suggestion.. and I want to like Guidi, the quality is great, but after trying on a pair at H Lorenzo, I gotta say I just don't like the shape that much - mostly the sole, not much contour. Also the upper I guess.. because it's so soft and mold-to-your-feet it's very floppy and doesn't have much of a defined silhouette. Maybe I just need to try a pair with some stiffer leather, like the older ones above.

    sinnedk - i'm going to have to bud in here. in pictures, the shoes you posted might look more interesting, but the first pair of augusta derbies in question are maybe the most perfect iteration of that style of derby Simone has ever done. This is a simple case of needing to see them in person to understand. The subtle amount of variation across the [two ply] leather-work of the first pair is really impossible to describe. i had a few clients come in months after buying them, and getting to witness the toebox's evolution after they had worn it to their individual feet was really something special. the proportions of the shoe after it had been user-molded was almost unrecognizable.

    i get what your saying, for me it was an issue of how the lace area comes up and it seems visually to me like the shoe should of kept going into a short boot whereas the pic i posted is more of a clear cut derby, now this is all subjective opinion and i have not seen the shoes in person... it was just my 2c

    btw you getting any ma+ bison backzips (double leather sole) in a 44 anytime soon :) if so, you have a buyer

    it's true, the upper is a touch higher than any regular derby, and it's perhaps this reason why i enjoyed its appearance so much when worn. it looks much similar to a boot when a jean or trouser falls over top, yet retains its derby-like toe proportions, a really interesting piece.

    nothing i'm able to announce about m.a+ at the moment, but every week yields new revelations...
