I grew up in Bergen County. Paramus stores are closed on Sundays, "Blue Laws". If you can plan a day and, have transportation, you're better off here: http://www.premiumoutlets.com/outlets/outlet.asp?id=7 It's not New York but, if you're looking for deals and are limited on time, you'll cover much more ground there. Just plan an itinerary because it can be overwhelming for new comer's. N.Y.S. open 7 days a week.

They may not be for everyone. However, I have it from a very high ranking executive that they are a very hot seller.

I asked Kevin, about this. He is the manager of the N.Y. store. Here is what he said: Hi Nick: Thanks for sending this. They are correct. The normal procedure for us is that if a customer (or customers) orders six of the same style of shoe (leather/material/sole), the factory will offer the normal stock price for the shoes. I say 'stock price' with the understanding that there may be surcharges if the customers want something 'above and beyond' or...
Sounds like you may have a plasric heel base. Have your cobbler look at them. If the bases are plastic have them changed to leather, then add a rubber top-lift.
WADR to every one's comments. I have handled 10's of thousands of high-grade shoes during my 34 years. We work on EG's, CJ's, Church's, Westons, Lobbs and more every day. I have relationships with several high ranking executives in the high-grade shoe industry. We talk shop all the time. I understand their business. They understand mine. We all understand that they are two different things. Now, to disclose: I've never worked on a pair of shoes in my life. Don't possibly...
