    I'm quite confident Arthur took the 41 from the sz run of side zips he received that season.

    People who own A1923, is there a risk of the nails on the sole rusting? And if so is it fixable? Thinking about buying a pair but photos of the sole show the nails a bit brown/orange.

    I'm looking into these Guidi derbys.

    As I've never handled any of these artisanal shoes in person can somebody tell me if they are soft when you get them (they look pretty broken in) or are they sort of hardened and tough?

    Also, how has people's experiences been ordering from PNP? I'll be ordering from the US.

    Thanks all.

    I'm not a huge fan of the Guidi derbies in softer leather. Guidi products are a lot less structured than other brands like A1923 or Poell. This looks beautiful on things like backzips, which are made from a single piece of leather and the quality of leather is the highlight of the piece, but on derbies with a lot less "surface area," the folding leather isn't as aesthetically pleasing to me. If I got a pair of derbies from Guidi, it would be in a thick, stiff leather like horse.

    Compare the shots of how great Eton's CP and Augusta derbies have aged compared to these Guidi derbies - again, my personal view, but something to consider:

    Compared with similar wear on boots which have a lot more "surface area" to work with:

    Never had any of mine show rust; even after wearing them in the rain without the protective rubber soles


    Depends on the leather, but most Guidi are soft to begin with, and they stretch and loosen a fair bit.

    All my transactions/interactions with PNP have been great. A great store with great customer service.... can't beat that!

    I know what you are talking about. But this is 100% absolutely nothing to worry about.
    If anything it's part of the overall aesthetic. His sneakers have rusted eyelets....the laces have rusted metal tips. The nails in the sole around the toe, heel and arch are probably discoloured from the dying process.
    But tbh if you are worrying about small details like this, Augusta and CCP are probably not for you.
    Simone and carol are not going to do anything that results in the footwear being 'damaged'
    As I said before, on the whole, these things are built to last.

    You should not worry about those on these shoes. I got a brand new pair with some of the nails 'rusty'. They are similar to the rusty metal aglets found on the laces. Here is a pic.

    Very cool. Thank you. Definitely would rather have my derbys look like Etons.

    So is there a preferred etailer for CCP for peeps in the US?

    If you must have a US stockist- Maxfields or Atelier (they are still taking orders). I'd suggest PnP or the The Office Gallery for CCP orders. Yes- I'm based out of the US too.
