    i have, they are very very stiff, almost like the boot is in a protective layer of something, they look awesome but will need some time to wear in, i couldn't move my toes when i wore them

    Am I the only one who doesn't need to wiggle his toes in his shoes?

    Saw a deal listed on sales thread. Luisa via Roma 20% off w/code FR20SS7. I'm not sure how much of a deal it is, prices are pretty high to begin with. Some stuff already discounted, not sure if you can double up.

    The code only applies to items already on sale; won't work on full price stuff.

    Hey guys I really like the stylings of these types of boots just was wondering how long they would last on average (thinking of picking up a pair of Carpe Diems). I just want to make sure that if I am putting like 650 in they will hold up for a good amount of time.

    they will hold up for a good amount of time. If you get them resoled every few years as they wear down, you should get at least 10 years out of them.

    So I bought a pair of black guidi 696's, and they're beautiful. Sadly, they're half a size too big, and without laces are unadjustable (even with insole). They're on B+S, but how much difference is there between sizes? If I was running an insole in a size 44, can I safely size down to a 43? Or is that unlikely to work?

    Normally I am about a 42.5, but on the lower end. I wear 9 in chucks, 9.5 in AE, 8.5 in Carmina, and while most people though I'd do fine in a 44 Guidi, it's just too big.

    You need a 43 or a 43.5- Guidi's should be pretty tight at first from my personal experience especially the zip boots.

    yea last time i trie guide on i sized 1 up, i am normally a 44 aka us11 and i took a 45 in gudi, however if there is a double heel the shoe becomes tighter and in that case a 46 felt better

    eck is right 43/43.5 sounds about right
