    Sorry I'm sort of new to non-sneaker shoes, but I'm wondering how would you wear these new MMMs?

    I quite fancy them.

    Hey Eck, what is the usual retail at Atelier for Augusta Backzips?

    Also, if Im at 47 in Guidi, is that just a straight 45 in Augusta?

    What is your US shoe size? Augusta sizing is either TTS or size down 1 depending on the last/toe box. Prices at Atelier are 2000-2250 usd depending on the euro.

    Quality is supposed to be really good- on sale now at Antonioli and Luisaviaroma too.


    I think the largest size offered by most JP stores in Buttero is going to be a 43 (not sure). The 43 is probably closer to a 44 or 44.5 anyways as Buttero runs big.

    ^^

    No- I'm saying most Japanese stores don't order anything larger than a Buttero 43 (some don't even order half sizes). Barneys in the USA buys a much larger range of sizes but only in a few boots. Sizing is the same for JP or USA.

    Do you know what boot you want? Maybe ask a proxy to look into it for you?

    I just saw this- I really don't recommend proxy Buttero in from JP unless they are a grail piece to you- you are going to end paying 70-80k yen and it that piece you are much better going though SZ's and Sufu's classifieds for used Guidi, Augusta, etc....

    I think it's heavy horse ( did not recieve a box with a code) ; it's super thick :slayer:. I'll toss up pics later.

    D- I'm going to email you later about Archive later tonight.


    Check the Chicago and Madison Ave Barney's they have stuff that isn't online.

    Ah nice pickup! Too broke to continue collecting carpe, but next year I might need to appropriate your carpe-finding apparatus for my own purposes :) Hopefully by then you are satisfied :p That or I can bottom-feed your churn.
