They are more expensive than Paul Smith but the quality is a lot higher IMO.

They have gone to final sale, up to 70% off, no Lucky's but there are plenty of other great shoes at bargain prices. Be quick.

What is Mink Oil?
post #4654 of 4735

Mink oil is not good for nicer leathers, This has been covered many times, "Mink oil for one, is not even made from Mink. It is processed pork fat or made synthetically. It permeates the leather and is used primarily on leather workwear (leather construction boots, etc) to keep salt from ruining the leather in winter. It also acts as a water repellant, again, btter suited for leather workwear. It can also be used for an old pair of beater shoes you'll use for rainy days, possibly. I would not advise using Mink Oil on any dress shoe. Using it on dress shoes is a very bad idea, especially on shoes of quality.. With your leather saturated with this oil, they'll never take polish properly, no matter how sparingly you've applied it"

I like these a lot. But the website doesn't say anything about construction. Any idea? Cemented or some form of stitching? They're from the PS by Paul Smith collection

Thanks for any feedback.

I think there are lot's of nicer looking Chelsea boots out there.

Do you not think it's a bit odd? One side elastic, other size is zip?

Maybe that panel is not elastic - maybe it's an insert - all a bit odd IMHO.
