    Both are thick as hell. CCP Bison are 'softer' than the Augusta horse. But wouldn't describe either as 'soft'. In fact the horse is still as stiff and hard as they were when I bought them.

    Cool. Trying to remember what my Augusta thermal horse were like... I think they were similar to the CCP bison.

    You can order the older CCP tornado model which has a rounded toe and is generally wide. It is the SX model.

    Not sure if you could do that with derbys though

    Left: Older, wider more rounded version

    Right: Newer, more pointed version

    I think the newest iterations of the model on the right does not have super pointy toes akin to how they look when that particular model was just introduced. Cant confirm but CCP seems to have toned down the aggressiveness of it recently

    Echoing eton97.

    I sized up 1, and there is a little room on the waist. Thighs run slim and fit perfectly when sized up. Regular size was too tight all over.
    FWIW, they are slightly higher waisted compared to LUC, IE, etc.

    Thanks, I don't mind the rust details but just wanted to be sure it's intentional and not a sign of the shoe falling apart or something.

    Wow the difference in toe shape between those 2 tornadoes is absurd

    They are the mismatch tornado zip boot; AM 2521- I'm not joking either.

    Yea, but you can opt to go for a matching pair in either the left or right model

    ^^ These are the two different am2521 available for special order from the office gallery - the left one is the SX model and i have that one. Naturally both my boots have the wider toe box.

    I went for the 'normal' model on the right. When I tried it on the width was just right..I imagine the one on the left would be absolutely massive for me

    The SX model is the shit as far as i am concerned. Tried the other model and was not into it.

    re: tornado zip models

    I just received 3 or 4 emails on this subject…. for clarification & I think this right (where is BSR when you need him)?

    AM/2521 sx regular tornado zip 2009 collection

    AM/2521 mismatch tornado zip from 2009 collection

    AM/2601(L) regular tornado 2010 collection- *** L (lined) only lined if you choose a non scarred reverse leather

    2010 tornado zip is a bit sleeker in shape and also has a slimmer shaft.

    ^^ yes BSR is the definitive reference but Tassos explained to me that the SX is the WIDER boot and sent me the earlier picture presented here with the mismatched pair white tornados as a reference regarding the difference. Indeed the SX boots I have are both like the left boot ( it.t wider ) Funny that Carol designed a mismatched toe box tornadoes but heyif anyone will do it it would have to be Carol.... I have a firend who received a special order tornados with one a full size biger then the other..
