I couldn't find it on the US website but it'll probably appear soon.
Just saw these on zappos. $95 US here. black white and grey. they look pretty good; an improvement over the crappy revamp, but of course at a premium price. at first i thought 'what, they brought back the underlayed smiley??' then i noticed it seems to mimic the, i'm no expert, but 70's or 80's Purcells. I think the rubber is 'taller' (none of that 'low-profile' junk they've done to half the ones they put out), the smiley and heel tag are blue across all models, it's unpadded (not a fan of that, i like the lightly padded Purcells), the rubber seems
to have a slightly glossier composition, the bottoms don't have the 'classic' siping, but a large zigzag. Also they moved the vents back up on the sides where they actually do something and are not blocked by the insert (such a dumb design flaw).
I wonder if they'll ever make it to 6pm.com
