42 should probably fit you then.

I got a pair of the side zips myself as the price was reasonable. Needed a pair of black boots.

It's only been 4 days, but I've worn them everyday and they're just getting more and more comfortable. No signs of problems so far, but then again, it's only been 4 days. Some part of me wants to polish them in black, but some part of me digs the grey thing.

Heh, I was just playing, they're mainline MMM. Not this season. I just decided to take a pic of those while I was doing the others.

I would like to see them polished black. I applied a tiny bit of saphir on the ankle, and the leather turned to a very, very dark grey. Pretty much black.

The mark on the right shoe is just a reflection.

Have you polished these? These look so good to their price!

And white ones, I think I´ll buy a pair to do some experiements at spring and summer. Paint them by my self again or something. White colour will look a lot nicer when worn in as does the black I quess.

i put fingerprints in the finish when i touch mine, its more of a waxy coating over the top (white shoe polish or something? i dunno). if you wanted, i imagine you could wipe the finish off and they'd look like the boots quoted above this post.

I have not. But I have wiped them down once or twice. Again, I highly suggest adding heel taps to the side zips. They will prevent the heel issue some are saying they are having, and will also prolong the life of the heel.

Here's mine with about two weeks of wear. Got taps on the first day. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Black shoe cream + polish:
post #506 of 794
Nice. I might do that to my second pair. Show us how it looks after a few wears.

Interesting...but what if you wanted the opposite? (i.e. you liked the finish and didn't want the boots to be jet black lol)

not sure, apart from not touching or wiping them often. just let normal wear put marks in it.

if you wanted to keep the finish uniform, i've seen MMM boots for sale that come with a jar of MMM white shoe polish, that has given them a white-ish, aged looking finish.

for instance, these boots on the TK Maxx website look to have white shoe polish or shoe cream or something on them, you can see where the strap on the side has moved, theres a line between where the polish is, and the untouched leather

If I have a 41 in mainline Sidezips, will H&M 41 fit me too?
