    Drizzt - which Obenauf's product did you use? And how much did it darken them? I'm looking to darken my tan Starrs as well.

    The Leather Oil will darken, the LP doesn't change color much at all, and it's more difficult to use on brogues.

    That's where I got mine from too.

    But I dont think their sizing is accurate. Some of the other PS shoes run a bit large, but this boot doesnt. The last it's on is actually pretty true to size....my UK7 fits just like a US8 without a whole lot of extra room. Those UK7.5 should fit a US8.5 really well, and it might fit a US9 but I would bet it doesnt fit more than it does

    Ian had them a bit cheaper a few weeks ago, probably not anymore though. I believe they were $310 + shipping.

    I emailed Ian a week ago or something to see if they had any daytona boots left. They're out of PS completely, or so they say.

    Nothing that Paul Smith makes worth it's retail price. It is British Banana Republic-Ted Baker mutant. Pretty much everything they make are affected junk for tween douchebags.
    I couldn't disagree more. I love Paul Smith. I've been lusting after these lately... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    yeah.. i think that paul smith shirts and clothing may be over priced, but i think the shoes are great, and the suits fit so well off the rack.

    I saw those starr brogues at gravity pope here in Vancouver and immediately went to purchase them, then saw $550.00. I almost did it anyway. I would pay 300 for them... I just need a US11.5D. If anyone has any ideas on that please let me know. Absolutely ideal shoe to wear with denim.

    Hey dudes,

    I was at my local nordstrom's rack and they had a lot of paul smith boots on sale there. They had the black engineer zip-up triumph motorcycle boot for like 190.00, and alot of the tan suede triumph boots with side zip and lace for around 200.00 also. Looked real cool, mostly larger and really small sizes available.

    Thanks for the heads up, I guess it's time to visit my local Nordstrom Rack. They rarely carry paul Smith though but it's worth a shot. Is it possible to call in advance and ask of they've gotten any shipments?

    I'd just call your local Nordstrom's Rack and find out. Their sales staff is usually pretty helpful.

    They run long but slightly narrow. 9.5UK is about a perfect fit for me as a true US 11D...
