Please help me identify these fantastic boots. Allegedly, Pikolinos.

Can anyone help me identify this fantastic shoe?

It is allegedly Pikolinos, but I have not been able to find it anywhere else. Emails to Cardino and Pikolinos have gone unanswered.

Thank you, Mefites.

From what I can see of the logo on the insoles of the other shoes next to it- which match it too exactly for it to be from a separate collection- the boot is definitely Pikolinos. Sorry I can't be more help but you're on the right track at least!

Since it's from spring 2012, the chances anyone is going to have in stock now are minuscule. Maybe check eBay for a used pair?

They're Spanish, actually. My suspicion is that it's part of the Brujas line from the Autumn/Winter 2011 collection. Look at this video, where he's explaining (in Spanish) the different parts of the collection; the Brujas heel and bootie shape is definitely what you're looking for.

The Spring/Summer 2012 line didn't seem to have any full boots/booties. As to the color and perforation pattern, my only guess is that Cardinos had an exclusive line made for their store. Sometimes the smaller manufacturers will be able to do that.

That is definitely Pikolinos from Spring 2012 and the leather color is "Tortue" but nobody seems to have any of that model in stock. Sadface!

On edit, Madamina makes a good point--this may have been a limited run model using the Spring 2012 leather color Tortue with the Fall 2011 Bruja boot design.

Pikolinos is fairly responsive to queries on their Facebook page. I agree that it's part of the Brujas line. Also, Pikolinos have become one of my top three favorite shoe brands in the last few years. I highly recommend for comfort, style and durability.
