Church's "Paris" Style?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just bought a pair of Church's shoes from the store on Madison Ave in NYC. They're the black "Paris" bench-grade style. These are my first pair of "high class" shoes and I wanted to make sure I got my money's worth, so I have a couple questions! Thank you!

1. I haven't seen this "Paris" style anywhere on the Church's web site or online. Does anyone know anything about these, and are they a decent shoe?

2. These have a polished leather, not the grain leather featured on the custom-grade shoes. Is polished okay, or is grain better?

3. Everyone keeps talking about the post-Prada decline in quality, but these seem to be pretty good. Is the post-Prada quality decline real or hogwash?

Thank you!!!

two years later did you ever get an answer? I am contemplating buying a pair now. What are your thoughts?

No, I never got an answer! But I'm happy with them. I wear them 1-2 times per week and so far they're still great. They're comfortable (as much as a dress shoe can be, anyway), and they've held up well. The polished binder looks good actually. If you're interested in them I'd say get them. Hope that helps!
