    agreed, but the really tall (front?) zip boots - hanging upside down in an above shot, are ill. if they'd come in that rust color (or off-white)...

    You know I think they just intentionally fuck up on sizing ALA Reek
    My pair that is marked 46 fit me just like a regular 44 would. There is no extra room in the toes whatsoever.

    the sizing is quite consistent though, most of the time they seem to fit about 2 sizes big compared to most.

    edit: ok redacted on the consistency part.. seems like many people have been able to wear true to size while others size up 1-2. I only know for a fact my 44's fit like a 42 and measure the same as most shoes in a 42, but I've also seen size 42 guidis that are true to size.

    it probably varies by model and sizing, but I havent found guidis to fit that narrow. I have laceups in size 44 and though they fit more like a 42, they are reasonably wide. the couple of zip boots I've tried have fitted ok on my feet which are pretty wide.

    plus most leather shoes can be stretched in width at least a bit

    The thing to remember about Guidi sizing is that they are meant to be obscenely tight at first but will stretch/mold to fit your foot. The boots I have were the most constricting thing I have put my foot into but within a day of wear they became the most comfortable.

    Did you size up at all from regular?

    I'm normally between 42 and 43 and bought a 43 in guidis. They fit perfect now although very tight at first.

    my size 44 lace ups measure 30cm in length, which is the same as most shoes in size 42. so I sized up two. I suppose it varies a lot by the model.

    Agreed...the conversion is +2 for the correct size. There must have been a lot of shrinkage during the process of making the shoe, dyeing etc...

    Yeah ones that I've seen measurements on seem like they would fit me best in size 43, and I'm usually about 42 or just under.

    on a side note do any of the Guidi bags like this have shoulder straps?

    I'm going to check with my cobbler to add these soles to my multi-jointed lizard/snake/kangaroo/bull/calf/lambskin boots!

    That is good information to have, thank you. But do you think that is the case with all the skins? Including horse?
