    Bought a pair of Guidi sidezips in size 43 from a seller here and they are amazing. They're mostly black but with some brown, too.[​IMG]

    The fit is super snug (especially in the toe box), but I expect that to get better as I wear them more. For reference, I'd consider myself a 42 - 42.5.

    DBSS needs to bring back the lace up boot from several years back- the purple/brown color was epic :slayer:

    They are the same shape/style as the ones you posted here:

    These?

    I did handle them in person back then, but I prefer not having the artificial fold in the front.


    Have a look at the leather used here ....Of course, they stopped using it after an outcry!

    Some of my motorcycle gear is made of that stuff along with kangaroo. Horsehide is more durable than cowhide.

    Yeah true about the lacing, I think this colour is for females which would look amazing!

    Is Guidi's Cordovan as soft/ stretchable as their soft horse? i.e. should I size any differently for cordovan than I should for other leather? I figure I'll try a 43, but I'd hate to do another round of "oops doesn't fit"

    Though the idea still disgusts me a bit, after rethinking a bit I would assume they don't kill the baby horses for the leather. At least, I hope; I like to think natural causes and salvaging the remains....I'm probably being way too optimistic.

    I personally like how Guidi refers to the calf leather as baby calf, as if to assure you that they did, in fact, slaughter an infant animal. Baby calf.
