I've got a weakness for green shoes for some reason, but I liked the black a little better. Funny...
[quote=Tarmac;901847] my homie on Sufu bought and sold these a while back, I have never seen them anywhere else, they have a more rounded toe: QUOTE] These are the Dickens, I believe. Like the Sundance, except a wider last. They were available last year in black and olive green. I've got a pair of the black ones.

There were 2 pairs made in this way (not starrs but some other style) at the stores now, and it left me sad and depressed. Totally lame.

Or my rampant douchebaggery.
I've bought PS shoes at full retail and on sale. You pay a lot for the name, but the shoes are really nice - well constructed, good fit, etc. It's unlikely that you'll find them on sale. You may just have to bite the bullet and spend the cash if you really like them. Those are sweet though. It would kill me to pay retail for them...

They'll stretch where you spray them.
Hang them upside down when they are drying - the weight of the water plus the extra weight of the waistband should help preserve the length. SuperBobo's suggestion works well too - you might do both. In my experience, there is no need to overthink this.
