$560 is closer to £350, not ridiculous but IMO expensive for a rubber soled shoe. If you love them you need to get them!

cole haan makes a similar shoe thats VERY popular among younger people called the lunargrand. the price range retail is from $200 upwards to $280 for special editions at cole haan. im not familiar with cole haan either, but a check on styleforum reveals that the soles are glued with cole haan shoes. i imagine the leather must be better also with paul smith. has to be to for this shoe with a rubber sole, being 2 and half times more expensive than a similar rubber sole cole haan:

I'd be surprised if those PS Grands don't make it to final markdown with a target price of low $300 range. Sales season is starting.

It used to be that you could order online from the UK site for delivery to the US and even with the fairly hefty delivery charge and customs charges, with the VAT savings you'd still come out ahead by $50 or so per pair. It appears they don't offer that option anymore. You could try to find a UK retailer that ships to the US via Royal Mail/Parcel Force and takes off VAT.

Those Cole Haans are pretty horrific and look like a pair of wingtips crossed with a Nike sole.
At least the Grands with a plain sole have a bit of the Doc Marten rubber sole vibe to them.
The Grands are also glued construction.

I bought a pair several years ago for around $320. They're pretty comfortable.They run big.
