Types of alphabet symbols and its basic knowledge

X, Z, V, and other letters after an item number.
Many of you must have wondered what they mean and where they refer to.
Here is an explanation of the meaning of these alphabets.

What does the alphabetic symbol mean?

The alphabet on the GUIDI's item number is a symbol that represents the heel, sole type, and shoe category. There are various alphabetic signs, such as [FZV], which is a combination of [FZ] and [V], and [Z] alone. They have various meanings, such as referring to the type of heel or sole, a combination of several specifications, the part number itself, or the type of shoe.

Can I select the alphabet symbols for all the models?

So, can these alphabet symbols be selected for all the item numbers? No, that's not the case. Some heels and soles can be selected with multiple part numbers, but there are restrictions on what can be selected because the wooden pattern of the shoes has a lot to do with it. There are alphabet symbols dedicated to one product number, and there are also products for which other specifications cannot be selected for those that refer to the item number itself.

What kinds of alphabet symbols are there?

So what kinds are there? You may wonder about that, right? Here are all the alphabet symbols for the models currently available at GUIDI. In addition to the meaning of the alphabet symbols, we also provide information on which item numbers are available for your reference.
