    It's a horse with some sort of oiled treatment. It's listed as Culatta Cavallo on the box

    ^^Love the shape of both augustas ( e&e's) - definite winner. The leather treatment not so much ( matte/reverse looking) Would be curious to see what they would look with wear.

    Bdude.
    I wore mine today and I can categorically confirm that the matt treatment wears off to leave a beautiful normal shiny cordovan leather. It will no doubt take a while if left to its natural devices, but no doubt if you wet them and gave them a good rub and polish, they would come out as you like.
    Where my jeans have rubbed on the bottom of the shaft, the leather is already looking like normal cordovan.

    Just got in my Guidi 988S in Horse

    Not as stunning as my CCP Tornadoes, but they're more meant to be easy beater zip boots.

    I've tried A1923 before with the Horse Double Sidezip from SS13 and it was super rough to wear on my feet as well as had too many sizing differences (some combination of too loose but somehow too tight in some areas) for me to reconcile.

    I don't think I've ever wanted to try again at the prices that they're going for now.

    Probably going to stick with CCP, Guidi, IS as I can't ever really try CDiem and I've had no luck with A1923. I do think they are beautifully constructed though and they seem the most 'tanky' in terms of durability.
