    Can anyone link me to pictures of boots that have the 'sock effect' that I should avoid?

    From what I'm reading, some of the best affordable sidezips would be Butteros?

    It's funny, because those are some of the most beautiful guidi's I've seen (to my eyes, obv.).

    Thanks!

    So these 10 sei 0 otto shoes would also be considered to have the sock effect?

    i'd say so

    more sock effect, just look at how the toe outlines in the leather, i am not a fan

    Edit: remember its a personal preference of mine, plenty of others love guidi, it just doesn't work for me

    :uhoh: wow those look pretty horrible. But those are crumpled on the neck and not the rest of the boot.

    And here I thought those 10 sei 0 otto shoes looked pretty nice :embar: Maybe I need to lurk more.

    I'm going to see if I can find the Buttero sidezips somewhere to try in the meantime.

    @Lokesh

    actually the shaft stacking like that is neat imo its the toe box that i don't like,

    for buttero try their site or nomanwalksalone or barneys.

    Something about the crumpled neck and clean rest of the boot does not appeal to me. Also it literally looks like a leather sock imo. But I see what you mean about the toe box. My current cheap-o sidezips are similar.

    I'll drop by Barney's and see if they have the Buttero sidezips available, thanks. Nomanwalksalone is all out of most sizes.

    These boots along with some backzips from rakuten are what convinced on Guidi.
    Love how they're a blank canvas and the more you wear them the more character they get.
    It's like you're doing all the distressing these other brands do, on your own.
    I think i appreciate that about clothing in general. There's a certain romance about truly living in your pieces and the memories you make while doing so.
    This holds truth for my ToJ which has only got better with time as well as my first pair of APC which i beat to death.
    Truly amazes me how pieces go from looking rather boring when they are brand new to looking completely different once well loved.
    Can't wait for my Guidi to get to that point, for now I'll just live.

    i couldn't agree more on everything but guidi is just not for me, check some ccp after a good amount of wear and you'll know where i stand. Hopefully one day guidi will be a bit more structured and i'll buy a pair in a heartbeat, i do always thing about owning a guidi back zip when i am in a hurry trying to get out

    ccp worn

    which toj do you have?

    Do all ccp look like that after long wear? That would actually turn me off ccp...
    I do think that the creasing near shaft are what makes the guidi 'look'
