    I'm not sure I want to know how much those S40Ms cost... or some equivalent.

    Received some a1923 backzips in a trade, super happy. I was looking for something a little chunkier in the toe and these seem perfect. Baby calf leather with some brown hues peeking through under the black.

    s40s are the side zip and the s21s are the back zip. besides that, they're pretty similar.

    breezy: yes, the top left are the ones i was selling. they are no longer for sale :B. the middle one is indeed the destroyed horse. i am not sure why the leather is so soft on the s21w compared to the s45m.

    From top to bottom, left to right:

    Carpe Diem S21M Dark Brown Double Soled Horse
    Carpe Diem S21W Black Destroyed Horse
    Carpe Diem S23M Black Double Soled Calf (?) Actually not too sure about the leather on this one
    Guidi 992 Chocolate Brown Reverse Horse
    Carpe Diem S45M Black Destroyed Horse
    Augusta Dark Grey Reverse Horse

    lol so much horse ): need some other leather lol ):~

    Bah why? Horse for life ;p I have some footwear in other leathers... but I try and avoid it. Exceptions being my attachment reversed calf (Shape was too awesome). Various av_field shoes (Buried in the desert adds enough cachet to justify it for me). Some guidi in donkey (As durable as horse so acceptable... bison would work too). And a pair of guidi in baby calf (First pair of "baller boots"... settled before getting horse in my life).

    Can't really beat the insane durability of horse, but that's what I go for.

    It's pretty rare to find anything Cdiem new.... keeping checking ebay/yahoo jp & rakuten. I was told the M.A+ back zips being discontinued by Pita a few days ago.



    backzip/sidezip- The fit is totally different IMO; S40M is a bit narrower.


    single sole and double sole look completely different.

    Damn Amadei for discontinuing the back zips. I'm going to have to either create gold through alchemy or self some stuff to get a pair in time.

    Secondly, Uzairh, are you saying Atelier is closing?

    Do I have any hope of finding some Carpes (even the Jun versions) to fit 38/39, or should I just content myself with ordering a couple of pairs of Guidis?

    Carpe made shoes in female sizes, I've seen some on Yahoo auctions. They usually got for cheaper, too

    Pretty sure Carpe footwear in womens sizes had codes that end in an 'F' instead of 'M'.

    Razele, I don't think they were intended to be rewaxed. Just worn through to the under layer. Beauty in decay, wabi sabi, etc.

    By the way, what cobbler do you use? I've tried a few and settled on Cobblers Two on Roma street. Easily the best service and friendliest guys I've come across.
