Well, after looking at the FW09 W+H thread, I gotta say that, although they're pretty nice in their own way, I'm not too keen on those new style boots, definitely like the old style better. Hopefully I'll get a shot to kop the first season black leather ones, even if used, before they become extinct.

Really? I do agree that it was a black pebbled grain leather, but that really has no relation to the treatment the leather received, right? I saw a pic of a used pair of last seasons black boots and they kinda looked like they were oil treated, maybe no as noticeable as in the current brown's but they looked like they were at least waxed or something....... Here's a couple of pics where it looks like they have some oil or wax treatment to the leather, first look like used oiled leather and second looks like a studio pic on a new pair so the lighting with have something to do with it but it still looks like waxy coat or sheen on them:
