They are goodyear welted and i've heard people comparing the leather favourably to that of Allen Edmonds. I'm not qualified to offer an opinion on quality as they're my first nice pair...

How about these: http://cgi.ebay.com/J-M-WESTON-MENS-...#ht_500wt_1182 They were discussed here starting at post 14123 on this page: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...on#post2432617
Thanks for your comments. My main concern was that the shoes were not genuine Westons. I, too, don't think they are the most beautiful shoes. They are fairly plain, but at least well made. And, assuming they fit, they will be fine. By the way, the shoes appear to be the same Weston model (556) shown in the 3rd post of this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...uede#post27605
I just won a pair of Weston suede plaintoe bluchers - here is the link to the auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/JM-WESTON-SHOES_...#ht_500wt_1114 I am surprised that the final price was so low. Do I have any reason to believe that the shoes are not authentic?
I am not familiar with this shoe brand. Can anyone tell me anything about the brand? Where is it made? What brands is it similar in quality to? Also, is anyone familiar with how they run size-wise?

If you want authentic iconic pieces at a fraction of retail take a look at metroretrofurniture.com. He sells stuff from all of the mid-century designers - Eames, Saarinen, Bertoia, etc.
Where do you live? Sears has three appliance outlets in South Florida. Some of the items are returns that have been repaired, but many are brand new. Every few weeks Sears runs a sale on washers or dryers - washers one week, dryers a few weeks later - from 20% to 30% off the discounted price. You can find the Sears outlet closest to you at their website.
Take a look at metroretrofurniture.com
