    good stuff- guidi's cordovan cont. is really one the best reverse leathers IMO.

    CCP 2010 Bison - great uneven scarring. Some people may or may not like but i find it quite interesting. I think it will probably look even better in dark grey colour /19

    My first choice was a A1923 dual zipper but unable to find a decent priced one on the market - cheapest one was http://www.anchoretbeijing.com/#!/item/render/1/101

    Was worried on sizing and just google searched 'ccp tornado bison' and the bison version do indeed run smaller. Usually size 7 but went with a size 8 on this instead, and they fit perfect.

    Despite what people say about CCP being uncomfortable, these are probably one of the most comfortable boots for me

    It takes a bit of practice. I nearly got the foot equivalent of carpal tunnel putting them on but the idea is that when you unzip you push down on the boot making a wider opening for your foot. It works but takes some practice. The only thing that bugs me is I've only ever seen these zippers on women's boots.

    I found that the bottom zipper helps very little. I could get my foot in and out with just the top zipper undone. I didn't like the reversing on the shaft, but that is a personal preference.
    Getting in and out felt the same as the boots with the zippers on different sides.

    @Marlon and @Chiggah, nice purchases!

    "Finest Calf." Nice and stiff, hence the crumpling effect.

    Can't say I'm a fan of that toe box though.

    Whoever wore those shoes was way way too small for them, the vamp wasn't filled at all

    Jil shoes are really good IMO, have owned like 4 pair

    Looks like the Church's corrected grain leather.

    Corrected grain not being the end of the world, just designed to give a more sterile look that fits in better with the Jil aesthetic.
