Just treated myself to a new pair of boots, and after the first wearing I think I chose well. High quality, simple design. Was concerned about potential fit because of the oddly contradictory information in reviews on STP and Zappos regarding PLDM boots -- some say they run big, some small. They mark their Euro size 39 as a 7 1/2, which is unusual (I'm a pretty standard size 8 and in my experience those two sizes are usually synonymous) -- but because so many of the reviews said these boots run big, I decided to try them in 39. If anything, they ran a little small for a 39, which may be why they're sized as 7 1/2. My right foot is slightly bigger than the left, so while the left boot fits perfectly, the right is a little bit closer to the toe than I would like. That said, I decided they fit well enough with thinner socks, wore them last night, and found them to be very comfortable. The leather is fairly thick so I don't know whether they'll stretch enough to ever accommodate thicker socks, but I should get lots of use out of them for years to come. I bought the black, which looks to be an oiled leather, matte finish.
