You can walk in like you own the place and mention the sale and see what happens. Or call the store and just say you got an e-mail about it.
Official Paul Smith Shoe Thread... all PS shoe questions here - Page 298
I also had a look online and there's no mention.
Paul Smith produce dozens of designs each season - it could be that this style was only ordered by a few stores and never made it onto the online site - I don't remember ever seeing them before I saw them in the Sale store.
I got a card in the mail. The card says non-tranferable and you must present it at time of sale.
They've been doing these things for a while. One time a while ago I was in store before the private sale started and was able to
pick a few things and they shipped them to me when the sale started.
Somewhere back in this thread I think people who didn't get the card tried calling in but were shot down.
The T&C's do vary - sometimes you can only use the card once. Of course after the first 2 weeks of the sale most stuff is further to reduced to 50% - but it gives you the opportunity to snap that item up before it might sell out. There was a time when they used to make a final reduction of around 75% during the last week / weekend of the sale, but that has long gone.
I just tried some on yesterday and they fit true to size for me, pretty perfectly actually. I would have liked the balmoral V to close a little more at the top, but I have a pretty high instep so that is normal for me across the board..
I think I"m gonna throw my Starrs back up on ebay...those things are so pointy! Not sure why everyone loved them so much on this thread. They look good in pictures but not on my feet.
