    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    i'm thinking about buying guidi, but not sure, because it rains a lot where i live. How do you care for them? With a regular shoe usually i use shoe trees and rotate them, to get them dry. Do you use shoe trees with guidi, i think not, how do you get them dry?

    this is just my opinion and it's a matter of preference... non-dress shoes looks much better with creases and signs of wear than day 1, so i would wear them without caring too much. perhaps some non polishing products occasionally and waterproof products like this -> http://www.woly.com/en/products/shoe-care/waterproof/

    What's the general opinion on Bottega Veneta? Came across the name multiple times and wanted to know what SF thinks about quality.

    Also a question about Guidi sizing, people say they are very small and sizing up is needed.
    I wear 41 in most boots and 42 in Adidas/Nike Sneaker (sometimes 42,5). In CPs I'm betweem 40 and 41 (wearing 40 atm but would prefer 41 I guess). Do you guys think a Guidi 43 would fit me?
    I see people wearing 40 in CPs wearing 42 in Guidi, so...
    thanks for info in advance!

    Depends on the leather. Some stretch less, but it will most likely be 1-1.5 sizes up.

    Bottega definitely puts out high quality leather goods, but their aesthetic is different from the aesthetic most people in this thread are looking for.

    ...and after spending too much, I put down a deposit on a pair of the Layer 0's for IA in black. Yay for credit cards?

    But as a seattle-ite the idea of a PNW based last plus Layer 0 plus cordo is too good to pass up on.

    The shoes are all? (Maybe only boots?) built on a last that was based on a logging boot from the Pacific Northwest around the turn of the century.

    41 RAF/CP (40 is slightly too small), 42 Guidi lace-up boots wearing with insoles. Not sure if other leathers/models fit different.
