    So I have a funeral to go to tomorrow and the only footwear I have with me are the H&m side zips and a pair of Docs. I slathered a bunch of black shoe polish on the side zips, not being sure what would happen, but they've polished up pretty brilliantly. You'd never guess they'd been grey before (though not sure how they'l wear).

    Sort of a shame to ruin the finish on them, but the sole is already starting to peel off and they've probably only got a few weeks left in them , so I don't particularly mind ruining them.

    I don't know how badly you have beaten them, but since they were released just a while ago, few weeks left in them sounds awful.

    I've worn mine almost daily for over a month with heel taps, and they are holding up great. The guy up there is probably referring the rubber part of his heel as his sole.

    No I'm talking about the sole. Coming apart under the left toe. My fault for wearing them in the rain, I guess.
    I might get them re-glued, but obviously it's a losing battle.

    Ouch. I have actually worn mine on and off in the rain as well and they are fine.

    Worn mine solidly for a month in shitty Irish weather...holding up just fine. Infact after some conditioner and polish they look better than they did originally.

    Anyone in Chicago, that can confirm if the collection is still in stores? I heard State st. was a better bet than Michigan, if that's true.

    i was swamped with the holidays and still haven't made it, hoping for a trip this weekend.

    Thanks in advance.

    Don't waste your money. The sole is going to come apart from the upper long before it wears through.

    i wouldn't worry too much about these falling apart...what the hell do you guys do that your shoes need so much protection?

    i ran 2 miles in these boots the other day, no problems. far and away most comfortable boot i've worn. gonna try to find a 2nd pair just in case

    Just bought a pair of black sidezips. Can't complain for $30. For any Long Islanders interested, there are a ton of side zips (especially the white ones) in all sizes at Roosevelt Field mall.

    How'd you end up getting them for $30? And I thought 20% off $99 was a good enough deal...
    @Jab those look great!

    Just bought 5prs of toe/heel taps off eBay for $5. Only thing I will do to my boots.

    I heard some places went as far as 90% off. That's maybe how it was only $30.

    Some articles online talked about the women shirts for the collection going for as low as $10.

    They were all marked down to $30. When I looked at the price tags there was no indication that they were ever marked down to $99. Just the $299 price tag with a $30 sticker over it. If anyone wants a proxy let me know, I'll be stopping by tomorrow

    EDIT: Wow, a lot of you hit me up for black in 42/43. Hope there is enough for all of you, sorry in advance if there isn't.

    EDIT 2: Jesus Christ, I hope there's not a limit for how many boots you can buy
