    Cmon, I get really wanting a piece that only a particular designer makes, but those are simply a basic vintage style hiking boots. You can easily buy a cheaper version

    For anyone that wants "fashion" style hiking boots that are still well made, Goodyear welted and in different shades and leathers:

    You should try and make friends with those who sell them, or look for deals that occur online and in person. Since the resale value of Guidis are high and low depending on models, scour everywhere. If you actively desire something, it will present an opportunity as you act towards acquiring it.

    Personally speaking, Guidis are rather very plain, especially the PL2. I got a pair recently, and they’re very narrow, and have a lot of room for improvements. I’d personally just save your money, and contact Steinkogler for a custom MTO boot in Black Reverse Calf Leather for like $260USD. The reverse Horse leather on Guidis are thin, but not as structurally supportive as cow leather. Contact them and see if they use Perwanger, then ask for a roughout model of a leather boot model they have.

        I’ve been practically manifesting/hunting for a pair of Guidis for about a year and a half now. Overall, it didn’t really mean much. The shoes were very plain, and I think it’s rather the desire itself that I desired. My old Steinkoglers/ FleiSS military surplus boots are much more cherished than the PL2s. Speaking of which, the PL2s basically have an inner half sole to fill in the space, to give the illusion of looking big. It’s why all of the pairs you see online have that horizontal crease in the toe flex point. Most of the other Guidis are impractical, and fall apart. Speaking of which, I actually spoke to that seller about the eyelets; he said that they popped out, hence the reinforcement patches. Save your money and buy Steinkogler. FleiSS doesn’t exist anymore, last I heard.

          curious about the FleiSS – do you have pictures anon – also, which Steinkoglers. Love Euro surplus boots. Also have owned a pair of retail guidis, and while I will say the construction is not the most incredible thing in the world that horse (especially culotta) is just incomparable to anything else.

          "We are using Perwanger leather – for example our articles: 6603, 2898, 2897, 2211 – colours: petrol, berry, senf, grün, caramel, grau"


          Seems like I can only get it on these models so ill hold off on the hiking boots but I do like their combat boots especially the 3851 model, By the way how did you get yours, they said they don’t ship to the USA
