Ignore the pretty, flashing 'sale' sign and spend the extra notes to get a proper pair.
I own a pair of Tricker's shoes from STP and they're on par with AS for Brooks Brothers, which I also own. They're not great, but not bad and I don't think they're specially made for STP. For me, they were worth the price (I used a 35% off email code in addition to their usual discount, so IIRC I paid about $315). The Trickers lasts tend to be clunky, so I prefer their wingtips and boots.
STP has been getting fairly large shipments of Trickers shoes and boots for about the past year. They list them for about $485, which translates to about $315 with the usual 35% off discount code.
