    Awesome find, thank you very much! I'll give them a call and see if I can negotiate a decent price, much prefer to deal in person. Would make a nice weekend trip too, my wife wants to see the Capybaras at the zoo near there...

    Yep, 10sei0otto. I like them but I have found them only at fascinate and I'd prefer a retailer in EU. I'll keep looking.

    Probably returned because of sizing issues, the two pairs of 10 sei 0 otto I've tried ran at least one size large.

    One last white boot question, and I'm done, I promise!!

    These following links are the same leather, right? Vertice London lists them as cordovan leather while Atrum has them as oiled culatta leather.
    Culatta is just the back part of an animal in leather lingo, yeah? And I've never seen any A1923 use cow leather.

    The Vertice boot looks like a lot less Guidi-style "folding" on the front of the boot, but that's likely just a result of the photography

    I feel like this discussion has happened before, apologies for the repeat

    They are the identical boot.
    I tried on the white side zip and FYI they come up 1 size large.
    So just to be clear I bought the sz43 horse double zip which was the same sz on my feet as the sz42 white single zip.
    And re folding - every pair has it's own characteristics as the folding/creasing is manually done while the boots are wet.

    Would anyone happen to know the difference in height between Guidi 986s and 988s (measured from the sole or the shaft, either is fine)?

    Many thanks

    EDIT: Clarification

    shaft only. for double height of sole/heel search for "z" and "zs" articles of 986 and 988.

    Sorry, I meant to say I was wonder what the height difference was measured "from the sole or the shaft", not the difference in the heel height. [​IMG]
