It's like, how much more black could this be? and the answer is none. None more black. In case you're unfamiliar with W+H footwear, these things are built like tanks. Tanks that go on your feet. Usually these guys fit about a size large, but this pair is pretty much TTS. Perfect for an 11, maybe an 11.5 if you like your shoes on the snug side. I wear a US 12 / EU 45 and I have a couple of pairs of W+H hi-tops in size 44 that fit well; these are just too damn small for me. Condition is practically new in box save for some dust on the soles (see photos). I tried them on indoors and wore them for < 1 hour total before giving up on them. Shoes come with box, extra laces (leather), and a dust bag.
