Luckily Pennagalan boots aren't expensive and they take Paypal. It cost me under $100 AUD for these boots, including postage.
When I took out my Dawn winklepickers I loved how shiney they were. I chose the black patent leather, but there are many options available including black leather, synthetic leather, purple glitter, white patent leather, pink patent leather. SO MANY OPTIONS!
Dawn winklepickers are pointy, I can't wait to get these on and stare at my toes all day. The zip was a bit stiff, but I put some wax along it. I ordered a size up, as the website suggests. I'm a size 10 mens, so I ordered a size 11 mens. They fit perfect! They even zipped all the way up, which is a surprise considering my fat ankles.
There are also different versions with bat, coffin, pentagram or western buckles.
The customer service was great. I basically put through my order, and waited for my shoes to be made. The website warns that shoes might not be in stock and they have to wait for certain items. I think it took around a month for me to get my shoes, which I didn't mind.
I got an email from a representative, and I asked him about my shoe sizing. He was very helpful. After my shoes were made I got invoiced via PayPal, which I paid straight away.
I don't know why they make winklepicker soles smooth! I had to take them to a cobbler, and it's costing me an extra $65 AUD to get soles put on.
Overall, these are brilliant boots. I'll definitely be buying from Pennangalan again. I'll probably get some bat buckles next time. The quality is good, and so is the price.
The only con, for me, would be the long waiting time and having to pay extra to get soles at my cobbler.
