Post pics if you got 'em, ask questions about the greatest boots ever
I've been looking to buy a pair myself, but I'm torn between the 998 and 788z models. I really like the taller heel (pictured) but im not sure if that's the only difference. Does anyone know more about them?
I thought 988 have stacked heels?
I really have no idea what I'm talking about.
Same here. Double sole and double heel, think that's the only difference, s indicates skinnier shaft.
I like the heel just fear it will be too feminine
Why are there so many variants of these shoes in all kinds of leathers?
Whats the difference between the horse; pig; donkey etc?
Are some more durable?
Does Guidi have a physical store when I can hand their footwear?
Kinda hard to say since most of the people wearing them are hungry skeletons but I don't see why not
Distressed lace-up boot.
One of the first things I fell in love with in fashion.
>being a skeleton - check
>having money for guidi - not check
Just save up man, think of every purchase as taking away from your Guidi fund
>Tfw someone bought the pair of Guidi boots you were looking at
>been patiently waiting for a pair of backzip to pop up on a marketplace
>been a month with no luck
>this morning in class during break browse grailed
>a pair of 988 for 500 Bucks for quick sale
>cant purchase on phone
>40 minutes later class over rush to laptop in car
>they are sold
Fuuuuck I'd kill myself. I'm sorry for your loss :(
Yeah I think I've decided on the 788z. I'm pretty sure there's no difference in the toebox between them and the 988, which is the main thing I'm worried about. The thicker sole, bigger heel, and slimmer shaft sealed the deal for me.
I meant in terms of the slimness of the toe, there isn't much difference. If anything, the 788 is slimmer.
All of the Guidi leathers are great and if you take care of them you won't have many problems at all. Although the difference lies in the leather, depending on the leather types it may be softer or stiffer. Softer leather is prone to the winkling and layering of the shoes that guidi are so known for, so if that's the case go for horse. Other kinds have different effects and silhouettes. Ask for on foot pictures if you're a buyer.
If you size up more you might, but if anything you should try them on somewhere or look into different brands
lol like anyone on /fa/ can afford guidi at retail
how much are they, 1k?
I mean, it's a lot, but in line with the high end.
I think I'd rather sink the money into gazianos, but this is definitely part of a look.

The problem with these is they only really work (from what i've seen) with someone sho is very slim. Also they can look bad if you have huge feet (though that goes for most shoes).
boots with chunkier toes (like rick's creepers) look better on people with non skeleton legs.
I know the guy in pic related has a p shit fit anyway but you can see what i mentioned with the boots in this pic.
i'll just stick with my SLP Chelseas ;)
Yeah, that fit is pretty bad. Guidis work with a particular aesthetic and clothing within that style. It's difficult to style guidis with 'normal' clothes. The jeans and shirt in that pic are not interesting at all. The cuts are boring and all the same shade of black looks horrible. Stagehand at a theater instead of cool edgy fucker.
I agree and disagree. They don't really look bad in bigger sizes as they're not sneakers, and they're not boots either. They're sleek, they work with simple and thin very well. So having a size 12 or 11 foot doesn't look bad with Guidis, because they're sleek enough it doesn't appear to be clownish, take the same size Guidi and replace it with Ramones or something in the same size and it'll look hilarious if your proportions aren't perfect.
Also, I get what you're saying about them looking weird on bigger guys. Particuarlly guys with big legs but I guess that could be rectified by playing around with drape/clothing length/layering.
Being /fa/ while also being fit isn't impossible, just significantly harder and requires a bit more creative ingenuity.
i might educate u so u can make more informed purchases in the future as a fashion consumer
guidi is heritage povera
hedi slimanes ysl is redressed britrock chic
obvious which is more edgier
>tfw not a long-haired new money chinese who can afford Boris and Guidi and Ann D right off the rack
I'll need more inspo to shoe you're not just talking out your ass on the basis of a single photo. Also, I'd wager they're easier for women to style because skin tight pants are common for women but still a fringe/hungry skeleton trend for men. Like when have you seen a dude wearing skinnies in that wash?
Love this but my feet are very flat so I doubt these will ever work
i think he is referring to his sz handle u tumblr fanboy piece of shit
guidi has dipped a little of the last few seasons
zippers only break if ur rough on them zipping up and down everyday as expected
customer service team is amazing with replacements however
ccp is far worse for this
they wont become the flavour of the year meme shoe so long as they stay unaffordable and relatively unaccessable to all the suburban mouth breathers that pollute this board
