    Those look so much more badass than the Corso.

    The Corso looks a lot like the Dickens from last year. Similar, if not the same broguing, wide last, etc. Just different colors (black and olive). Does anyone know whether those have been discontinued?

    The Caruso from a few pages back looks bad ass. They are nearly exactly what I've been looking for. The prospect of parting with another $500+ kills me, though.

    You can't tell how these fit by looking at them. They are leather, so they are flexible. They fit just like all my other PS shoes.

    Judging by how it looks, it seems narrower than the Ricards and the vamp looks lower than the Ricards as well, I could hardily say it won't fit well on me unless I go a size up or two. That would be my best guess.

    The Ricards/Cage fit me well enough with UK7.5 while with the Starrs, at UK9.5 still felt real snug. It's just how my feet are and I hate the I am limited to certain styles because of it.

    yea that was the wider boot I tried on, the Dickens, not the Corso

    ^^ that's crazy you can wear a 7.5 Ricard and not the Starr.

    ^^^ Yeah, I can't even put my feet inside a UK8 Starrs no matter how hard I try.

    Hi Guys... i recently fell in love with PS shoes (purchased the Ricards) Would it be worth my time to drive into LA to visit the PS store... I'm gonna be in SD next week and was contemplating... I wear a size 7.5Uk... are there any PS shoes for their sales worth driving in traffic for?

    The Corso's look beautiful. Missed out on the Sundance's and would love to check them out.

    Thanks in advance.

    ^^ the LA store is awesome enough to just go and check out...it's nearing end of saletime so remaining stock is mostly 50% off. shoe-wise it's doubtful there's much/anything left in your size but the store is worth a look just for the heck of it (then go check out surrounding area shops like American Rag to make the trip worthwhile)

    GS, do you know if the shoes are discounted further or do they typically end at 50%?

    they end at 50 btw, the website has some new F/W styles up. The Caruso boot looks cool, as does that 'PS' oxford called Granada (up one day and already sold out in half the sizes avail????) [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yeah, I saw those yesterday and I am really liking the Granada. Those are rubber soles on the Granada right?

    The UK website also has some interesting new pieces as well.

    Here's the Rollins (I can't tell if it's red due to my crappy work PC) which is described as having a "T. Moro Cordovan Uppers," with a green sole.

    Here's some cage that is describe to have a "Nero Dallas Uppers." Also with a green sole. It's also weird that you can see the nails in the toe area of the sole on this one.

    They also have the Deborah, I'm not sure if it is an old model or new but it does look like a narrower version of the Nash. It does have the same sole as the Granada's.

    The dark brown suede Achille looks good too. Paul Smith's version of a desert boot? I like the distressed toe look though.

    I just got the suede cage's in. They're great. I ordered an 11 just now to see the difference. I noticed there aren't any sizes left in the cage sigaro. Any ideas whether they'll stock more this season? I think it's a great shoe for me. Not much slip at all, something I have a huge problem with. I'm really happy.
