    What up Rfx?!

    That is a steal on the Guidi's. They need to stuff it with some tissues to give some shape for the pics.

    Augustas at Barneys to will drop again in a week or 2, for you big footed folk.

    For shoes, it usually drops to 50% the most iirc. Only clothing drops to 60% or lower.

    for Guidi, size up. I'm a true 41, but wear a 42 in Guidi.

    Guidi quality is good, great in fact. Many other companies use Guidi leather for their products. KKA, Backlash, Individual Sentiments, Layer-0 etc. Just to name a few.

    guidi quality is quite good. one concern, however, is the softness of the sole/heels, but that shouldn't be an issue as vibram is a must on any shoe/boot in this price range...

    One thing to consider with guidi is that their footwear fits kind of loose on your foot, so it can seem more like a slipper (with a high shaft) than a boot.
    they line their boots with the sweetest leather.

    hurhur, you are missing the major company that used guidi leather and probably the company that paved the way for guidi to start making their own shoes and having such popularity in this niche market amongst other footwear designers. that company is carpe diem.

    under $600 for a pair of new guidi boots is unheard of.

    I think it depends. if you prefer a snugger, tighter fit, you could probably go with 44. if not 45 would be best for you. So it depends on how you like your shoes to fit.

    i usually go TTS on my shoes and prefer roomier, basically roomy enough to wiggle my toes, sock size can be adjusted :)

    I vote for the 45's. I'm a 41/US8 and take a Guidi 42.

    Rec me a carpe like boot I can use as a beater, want guidi/augusta quality, must have laces, not a super high heel, no deformed shape and not too high.

    Went through atelier's site and lots of ugly.

    Additional notes, I like butteros but I dislike their high ass heel and high shaft otherwise they would be what I am looking for. I can trash them they don't need to be distressed or wrinkly or look like they're blowing in the wind, plus don't want goofy looking toebox.

    Don't think I've ever seen a boot from a non-traditional shoe company that I've ever liked... unless you count MMM/Paul Smith.
