Official Paul Smith Shoe Thread... all PS shoe questions here - Page 104

post #1546 of 4726
The boat shoes end up being under $300 including shipping and fedex customs fees if you order from the PS UK site.
Still pretty damn expensive for boat shoes but better than $350.

If you can find a UK site that ships Royal Mail/USPS you can avoid at least $25 of the fedex fees.

Not really shoe related, but I'm sure someone reading this thread can help.

Does anyone have any experience with Paul Smith repairing damaged goods? I bought a bag there a couple of months ago and the shoulder strap is falling off (it's clearly a manufacturing defect given how little it's used and how bad the damage is). I bought it in the Soho shop. Retails was just shy of $1k. I assume they will fix it for free, but I'm also wondering if it'll be done well, as I'm sure they send it out to a shoe repair place or something.

Anyone have any similar experiences they can report on?

Thanks,
Dan

Is this still the case?

Also, just to be sure, is this 10 US in chucks and 7.5 UK in the musa?

they will do exactly as you describe (send it to a local repair place not back to the manufacturer). the quality of what's done will depend on who it's sent to.

at the price you paid I would ask for a replacement bag or a refund.

Ah, to be expected, won't find the same boat shoe for cheaper though so it may be worth it, I'd love to see you rocking them but I can understand the price argument, especially since you'll probably want two colours :P. Still, they're probably the nicest boat shoes I've ever seen.

Won't be worth it. Not spending $300 on boat shoes i don't really need. Maybe if they drop to $150 and i'm kinda drunk browsing online stores.

I'll gladly pick up the blue or green boat shoes for $150 when they go on sale, sober or not

p icked up my first pair of PS's at the outlet on Avery row. Dip dyed Oakwood starrs UK7. anyone know where I can get shoe trees that will fit these, not too expensive? ($20-$30 price range) and how often should I polish them?

^^^ I think any regular shoe trees will suffice.
Costco or Nordstrom Rack usually has them for around $10-$20 each.

I really like the color of those Starrs, nice pick-up.

You can't go wrong with Woodlore shoe trees. They are $29.95 with free shipping (both ways) from zappos, which is a pretty good price.

These were the ones on display at the outlet. I told them to grab me a pair and the ones they got from the back were a different color (darker). I opted for the pair that was on display. It's really cool how the dip-dye process really makes each pair slightly different.

thanks for the tip. I'm going to scope out Costco first (I purchased a pack of two for $30 here, just not sure if they have smaller sizes).
post #1558 of 4726
Those Costco trees were only in one size and I haven't seen them in my local store lately.
I think they're on closeout. A few people have been offering them in B&S.

The Cedarville Store is an SF affiliate and they offer a discount.

I usually just wait for the Nordstrom ones to go on sale for $15 which they seem to do
a few times a year. I don't like the ones from the Rack though. They seem to have a lot of splinters.

Oh, and I really like the color of those Starrs.
post #1559 of 4726
That is a fantastic color on those Starr's. I called them today to see if they had 6.5UK. Alas, no. She said that the half sizes are not as common.
post #1560 of 4726
I wear an 11 in chucks and a 10.5UK or so in Musas. They fit long. If you have a narrow foot, you should be able to size down a whole size if needed.
