    Hey I'm thinking of doing a Guidi custom order via PNP.
    Will go for the 995, but I'm still hesitating on the leather. I don't want a leather which is shinny (prefer reversed) and I want something that won't take a weird shape with some wearing (like I swa on some donkey/calf version toe box :/)
    Which one is the "best" do you think ? Heard reversed pig was really good, and i kinda like the reversed horse too. Any idea ? :)

    Thanks

    reverse horse and make sure there is a toe cap to avoid weird shapes (if model says "ms" = no toe cap)

    If the model says 'M' = no toe cap.
    It may or may not say 'S', which indicates a slimmer shaft.

    I really like those and I wasn't such a small timer would kop and just wear sockless through the winter.

    Forget snow boots and what now (If I lived in such weather conditions), these will do.

    shearling lining doesn't make sense in zip boots.

    because the break from the zip area wont keep heat in?

    nah.

    because zip boots need to be tight by the shape alone - you can't tighten them with laces. When you have a shearling lining it's naturally padded, so it can't be naturally tight. Without laces you'd never get a good fit.

    Aside from that, shearling lining is something you want on a true winter boot. I never really thought of side zips as true winter (read:snow, slush etc) boots.

    IMO.

    I picked up a pair of the shearling-lined acne pilot boots a couple of weeks ago (front zip). I'm hoping that with some sno-seal and a rubber sole they'll be excellent in the cold and damp. Haven't gotten a chance to wear them yet (still way, way too hot outside), but I have a good feeling about them.

    Hi,

    these would be the 991s, right?
    Can you tell from the pic which leather it is? Couldn't find any info.
