Isn't one of the cool things about shell how resistant it is to everything you can throw at it (including walking in them not making creases)? Just hit it hard with a brush and it comes back to life

If you're referring to the convo up above, the boots aren't shell. Checked them out yesterday in person though and I wasn't crazy about them. Leather was fine, just didn't like the shape.

This is true, I would confirm that they are actually horsehide. People misleadingly say cordovan to describe either horsehide or a brown coloured calfskin. It's never shell cordovan, or they would say shell cordovan.

For 150 dollars and DC Weather would Chippewa Gq's be a good choice?

They're not really workboots....

Don't

+1 ask in that ps thread. Or search it, there is a great post by zippy in there somewhere comparing the different models. Size varies drastically depending on the particular model/last so we can't give you a generic paul smith size conversion.

Seriously? They are available on the Grenson website in a UK12, which could very well be a US13.

My 2c on OC.. I bought a pair of OC suede brogue boots and the quality seems very high - as good or better than my F+B's. I've only worn them maybe a dozen times so far, but they are comfortable and seem quite durable. I find the lining on boots is often a good indicator of quality and these ones use a perforated leather lining (for breathability, I assume?) that's quite soft.
