Surprised they actually fit you. I couldn't get through the instep even If I sized up I don't think.
They were tight at first... I wore em with thick socks and they loosened up. But they did still have that feeling of slight tightness in the instep and loose everywhere else (loose in a good way, tight in a not so good way). The fit and the 5 mins to put on were the reasons I sold them.
could just buy IS
The lore of CD is too strong
My S52 fit good if you can find some of those I think you'd like them no weird instep issues and wide enough for anyone's foot.
^Easy on the use of Saphir Reno... you can do some digging in thisthread for more anecdotal details. By the look of your shoes, they look pretty dry in the vamp, which maybe due to use of Reno. For the vamp where most of the bend occurs in your step, you should opt for something less harsh like a simple conditioner cream.
@Mr. Moo started the thread, which was great but now is a bit silly... First 12 pages or so are worth a read.
Love the natural sole on those Augustas
I wish pricing wasn't so outrageous, $1250 is about my limit for baller boots.
is this white kudu version of these: http://www.pnp-firenze.blogspot.com/2014/04/a1923-ss14-back-zip-boots.html
Both are horse
i know this E, but the texture is rough and looks reverse like here http://www.pnp-firenze.blogspot.com/2013/10/a1923-fw13-14-double-zip-up-boots.html and i've seen kudu look like that so i am not sure what it is
It's put down as culatta, so it's horse or cow, and since I don't recall Simone every using cow it's safe to say it's horse.
I'd kop a pair of those tornado zips if I could. I'll just sit here and wait for the second hand market to deliver them unto me. Amen.
Thin soles glued to the bottom and often cheap looking leathers. Margiela hype surprises me.
Thanks toasty. I haven't used reno on them actually, ever, so they really just need some conditioner and polish. I have lexol if you think that would work better. The leather on the dark brown cap toe boots is really shtiy and cracked pretty much from the get-go, so I'm not sure I can salvage those. Polish seems to restore the black ones nicely, and the tan are pretty new so they haven't needed anything yet.
^^ these diagonal Augustas have a perfect shape but i am not digging the reversed looking leather - why would not Simone use regular full grain horse?
I think the weird half-assed "tornado" zip is unattractive. Boot shape is nice, but that detail irks me.
