    Just got a badass pair of corsos from blynch (shoutout). First pair of PSs, what leather creams or such do you guys use on yours? Bees wax polish? Also, serious n00b question, but my shoe trees don't even fit in these. Where can I get some good trees that will squeeze in to corsos? thx
    Saphir neutral cream (I wouldn't use any colored products because it can remove the pattern of the dip-dye)

    Cemented with rubber sole. Kinda crappy. Avoid.


    I want them due to rubber sole , I got too many real shoes. That same model is available with leather sole an 100 pounds more.

    I need some more casual. It is so bad ?

    Nothing wrong with rubber soles, it's the cemented construction that sucks.
    All I can say is that it's your money.

    Please tell me more. I like them for summer and driving with jeans for weekend and so.

    I got some similar with cement and after 5 years of abuse are ok.

    I think he meant that the shoes being cemented means it cannot be resoled so once the sole is done, so is the shoe. Overall, it's not bad but it is just better to have shoes that can be resoled to get your more of your moneys worth.

    Ah ok, I understand. But the fact is that I like them for fashion use, not for work dress as other shoes, so they´ll go first out of fashion or I´ll get bored of them years before hypothetically the sole needed some replacement.

    Are they done on the birds last? I tried those on a shop and were horrible. I hope not.

    Thanks

    Hi Guys,

    I'm new to the forum so I'd like to say hello to you all first! [​IMG]

    Secondly I'd like to ask for some help in identifying the model of the Paul Smith boots that are pictured below. Any other information would also be really appreciated.

    Many thanks.

    Those sort of look like the Bihar only with a real cap toe and a different sole.
    Plus they appear to be non dip dye.

    Don't think those are PS, they are similar to the Red Ears but the bottom of the vamp and the script on the sole are off

    I have a feeling prices won't be as good as I would hope. I'd still check it out though, it'll be hard since it is at the same time as RO and I would like to check out what RO has to offer.

    The damn gilt iPhone app didn't indicate that shoes are listed in uk sizes. I just ordered some too large loafers.
