    Women's Guidi sizing help!

    I'm about to order a pair of 988 in soft horse, I'm normally a 36.5 and 37, never went beyond 37. Rick Owens 36, Ann Dem 36 or 36.5, Marsell 36, MMM 37, what should I get for 988? I was told to get a 40, but I never heard go up 3 sizes...very confused now...please help!

    The width of my feet are normal, not wide for sure and not too narrow..

    What's your foot's measurement if I may ask?

    I'm not sure what kind of issues you had, but I can tell you that the tabis are definitely a more delicate/soft leather than either Ann or Rick boots are. They are made beautifully--I think mbd, who has more tabis than god, even mentioned that the construction has improved over time--but they are not stomping boots. This certainly isn't meant to be discouraging...it really depends on what you intend to put them through....

    my ro boots with spiral zip had a open front..lucklily it was not an expensive repair since glue can just fix it..that happened 2 times i wore them

    I have two pairs of the MMM tabi boots and I have to agree they are more delicate. They are definitely not a rough and tumble shoe.

    One complaint I do have is they seem to be very loose around my ankles however that may just be me since mine are extra narrow. I haven't been able to find a cobbler willing to touch them to make them more fitted. The patent leather one I have is definitely more durable versus the regular calf leather.

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I'm still super tempted, as long as I remember to be more choosy when and where I wear them. I just do have the tendency to wear things I love into the ground. Eep!

    Speaking of tabi, has anyone had a cobbler vibram their soles before? I'm a bit hesitant to take my aging 2nd hand pair in, as I'm not sure they will be able to go around the "toes" cleanly.

    fadetogrey - I have vibram soles on my tabis, and the toes came out great. I took them to Firm: http://www.yelp.com/biz/firm-shoe-repair-new-york

    ladies of sz, need your help on smth.

    anyone knows how these fit? looking to get a pair for the sister and she's usually a 38 or so, maybe a 37.5 (fits a guidi in 39)

    i know ann sometimes tends to run large, so will a 37 in these be good for her?

    thanks in advance!

    nictan, nice thing for a brother to do for a sister (hope mine reads this ;-). i think one full size for those will be ok, the only thing you wrote that throws me off and makes me hesitate to say 100% yes is the guidi 39.

  15. #975

    ^ thanks. hmm why do you say that? to my knowledge the guidi's fit a size small, which was why she got a 39 and not a 38 in the first place.

    if it helps, her guidis are the high heeled calf length versions.

    q, yea im quite aware of that as well. sadly thats the only pair of footwear she owns we discuss around here.

    but either way, im pretty sure her actual size is around 38. hope the ann in 37 will fit.

    That's exactly my size too, and in Ann I usually buy a 37.5, though in some styles a 37 will fit. I've mostly found that older Ann footwear fits larger than more recent seasons (though not always the case!). If possible you should ask for an insole measurement. Anything around 9 3/4" should work.

    Nictan, these fit one size large (these are the originals - the reissues have black buckles). Go for it - they will fit perfectly.

    just chiming in to agree with Faust....my Ann boots from 2005 are a full size smaller than I usually wear. great boots, lucky sister.
