    Ooooo love those Ricards. I'm in US on Monday, visiting San Francisco, Vegas and NYC. I will be looking high and low for a pair.

    But which colour? Decisions, Decisions. I have Cage's in the dip dyed brown, love it, but I'm thinking some variety would be nice. I'm curious to see the Cordo. Black is safe, but aslo awesome.

    ^ Get the burgundy if you can. Get Smart has some PS boots in it & they look phenomenal.

    I was in Las Vegas a couple weeks ago. No Cordo Ricards to be found.
    Barney's in the Palazzo and Neiman Marcus in Fashion Show Mall carry PS.
    Maybe Nordstrom.

    When I was there, Barney's had the black ones on sale. NM had brown and black but not on sale.

    Zippyh, thanks for the tips, I'll check them out. I think I'll have to see all 3 before I decide, but I probably won't pass up a good sale price.

    Do you think the NYC store will have sales in January? Will there even be any stock left?

    Is it general consensus that for PS boots, it's best to size down one size?

    Is that size down .5 size from true foot measure or what you usually wear in dress shoes?

    I have the Ricards in Cordovan as well as black. The black ones were bought from Gimmeshoes.com in San Francisco while the Cordovan was bought a few months ago from the Barneys Madison Avenue store. I'm currently looking for the brown ones in UK8.......

    Good luck the Brown Dip-Dyes AFAIK were discontinued a full 1-2 seasons ago. I doubt many more stores carry them because they've probably been clearanced out already. Not saying impossible, but I doubt they'll be readily availible anywhere.

    Has anyone had PS shoes or boots for say 10+ years and how did they hold up? (I am not asking about the sneakers)

    Anyone ever re-soled a pair?

    Cheers
