First things first. I have the Hong Kong. As I put them on and walked around in them sporting my favorite jeans, the first fear I was instantly dispelled — they’re both incredibly comfy AND you can walk very readily in them: quite a few men have got in touch with me over the past few years about the company of pushing the bounds the next inch, and a few contacts I had talked about 6″ boots to had said:”but will you be able to walk into them?” . Fair point but they are terrific. The point is they are designed to BE walkable. It is simply not always like stuffing 6″ value of lifts in normal boots. What people often forget about elevators, the better versions of especially today, is they are made especially to allow for the extra height. At the highest levels, it’s an art (as well as a science of course). So on to the look of them. I have always had a kind of guiding rule that I do not want boots to possess TOO. And these are just great. There’s of course a limit without just adding amounts into the outsole such as boots, to adding elevation, unwalkable and huge-looking. The men at GuidoMaggi have managed to finesse the extra inch without any sacrifice of design and subtly . I wouldn’t wear them, frankly, if they’d made because to me I want my height addition to be as unnoticeable as possible, those sacrifices. And I guess that is. What we need is something which looks like a normal boot. And these look and feel as a normal boot. They have been worn by me for several days in distinct contexts and they are right. Of course you couldn’t earn apparel shoes with a 6″ elevator (actually you can’t even make shoes with a 5″ height inclusion ). But Sports boots now cover a large number of possibilities, including the ability to wear certain types on the job. The Hong Kong I have is one of the ones you could wear in all sorts of situations, determined by what you’re doing. OK very formal scenarios require something different but in most situations that these do the job really well. In case you’ve worn 4″ or 5″ lifts, then these are just ideal and imho you should think of these as a logical upwards next step. . They trust me and take you that extra inch it feels it. Just superb. Get a feel for them and I’m going to use these around. And in my next piece will allow you to understand more of my experiences.
