    They're patent leather and black, but they do look brown. I posted some fit shots in the baller boot thread. I didn't like them at all and thought they were rather cheap and plasticy. They are the exact same as last season as well the same army boots balenciaga has been releasing for a few years. I doubt Hedi had any part in this.

    Last year's were black. The color of these is decidedly a brown "cordovan." The label on the box reads "Cordovan Foncé." We also got them in chocolate suede. I'm not sure about the pricing yet, we've had a tag mix-up. Will let y'all know though.

    I never think about SLP would use shell Cordovan to make Boots. Most of their boots looks really shiny. Hard to tell it's leather or patent.

    This is the pair I like from current season.

    This is exactly the boot we got in today for AW13. We got in a chocolate brown suede and a "cordovan" leather version. I think they are simply using that as the color though, I do not think they are genuine cordovan. I will find out on Monday though for sure.

    Which is.. A size down correct? If I am an 8.5 in most typical shoes would I be good with a 41 in the SLP hi's or a 40?

    I'm not really sure if those boots are just really shiny calf or actually patent. This pic looks like it just shiny calf.

    Also, there is a brown color called cordovan, Paul Smith used the same color description for these boots:

    It's not patent, just calf but really shiny. I was in the store last week and can confirm that. But the leather definitely not cheap and plastic.

    Yeah i think it's a collor called cordovan (aka. brown).

    No problem using the pic at all.
    i don't think I've bought a pair of PS shoes in over a year.

    I did get some SLP white low sneakers today though.

    Same here, more like 2years though for me. I haven't really seen much that I like from PS in a while that I don't already have (or similar to it).

    Those sneakers are nice and surprisingly well made. Been wearing mine at least once a week since I got it and still looks good as new today.
