    Cant say a part of me doesn't want the dual zips but the want is not enough to drop 2k.

    I will say this, since Simone flooded the baller boot market there will be a lot of these on the 2nd hand market 1/2 - 1 year from now so to those who can wait just buy em 2nd hand at possibly 1/2 price. Also I hear the dual zips will be around every season now.

    For anyone after a pair of Tornados, there is a horse and bison pair in eBay right now. Sizes 9 and 10 respectively. Pity they are one size too small. Would probably fit a 43 TTS?

    hey Pairate, they're actually 9 & 10 in CCP's sizing

    9 ~ 44 & 10 ~ 45

    Oh yeah. That's what I meant sorry. I'm a 42 tts

    And bison runs slightly small right?

    thats what i hear although thats not consistent, moo's bison ccp is 8 which corresponds to a 10, ccp9 = 11 and thats what i have albeit in horse... but given the logical sizing i'd conclude ccp9=44 for bison as well...

    I have a pair in horse and had a bison pair. Horse in size 8 and bison in sz 9; they both fit great with the insoles. I could probably do bison in sz 8 without the insole, but I dont think it would be as comfy. Im usually a sz 43 in most things.

    I doubt Altieri is in it for the money.
    Also, contrary to earlier information, special orders may still be possible with m_moriabc. So if you have thousands burning a hole in your pocket....

    Anyways, MA+ Tall staple boots. Would prefer these without the new extended sock lining in a smooth leather:

    Yeah... Altieri was in finance or something before he got into clothes and dude apparently now lives a homeless-like couch surfing lifestyle now. Producing 3k boots handmade isn't really a scalable way of getting well off.

    No. I have found the one piece derby on the smaller end of tts - I'm usually a 42 and take a 43 in these - has a bit to do with the toebox shape.

    I was recommended size 7 in CCP Tornadoes from our good friend Anastasios. I'm size 9 TTS and wear Guidi 988 in size 43 for the reference.

    Payment is floating somewhere in the Russian ether for these bad boys.

    Hoping they don't crush my instep, but they are my size (42).

    @ClambakeSkate got the Left Field black tube tees in today. Very happy. Hoping they shrink 3% as they say they will. Either way they're a great shirt. Thanks for the tip.

    Thanks guys. that helps. I'm also a 9/42 TTS. Was considering a CCP 8 for my size, didn't know I had to go down that far. CCP 7 it is.

    How does the included insole affect sizing for CCPs, can it "fill in" an entire size? Do most use it or not?

    The way the thick sole at the toe so gracefully thins toward the heel. :nodding:

    And yeah, the tees shrink a bit for sure. I machine wash and dry them.

    I'm probably a true 41.5ish if eckblk is a true 41 and new unworn size 42 non bubble toe carpes are beyond brutal on instep. Was like insanely hard getting my foot in and once in it fit but after a few hours the instep ache sets in. Only after like 4 full day wears did it start relenting and become easier to get in and out of.

    Based on that I now sometimes buy size 43 non bubble toe carpe and so far that stuff fits pretty well too. Bubble toe fits one size larger generally... but yeah maybe my instep is just super high.

    Well, they're also a few years old and worn in pretty well. Fingers (and toes) crossed. :)
