    Sorry Doc, I take an 11 1/2 in these (normally a 10 1/2 to 11 so these run a little small), so didn't notice the 9s. They had the shoes I bought in black also, and they had a nice loafer, also in black, but they were very close in styling to (believe it or not) a pair of Prada shoes I have, so I passed. They also had some very nice ankle height chukkas, black and brown, in a pebbled leather, but I passed also. Was still very surprised at the abundance of bicycle toes; they didn't seem to scream Paul Stuart to me.

    They're up, guys. Or at least some of them are. Some very nice styles. A lot that are out there (woven and perforated leather, for example).

    I think I need to explain how we got these shoes. In the past PS sends all the Grensons back to the factory. After last years "frenzy" PS saw how well we did, so instead of sending the shoes back to Grensons, they desided to sell the shoes outright to us. Yes, we had to pay more for these, that is why they are $350 a pair. I can tell you, that Louie is not going to go down on the price. I can also tell you that these are all FIRST QUALITY and most of them have never been tried on. All the boxes have price stickers from PS saying $678.00.

    Are any additional styles going to be posted or is this everything?

    Right now, this is it. If we get anymore, they won't be MP's. They would be the Italians.

    I think this sounds like we can forget a ton of Grensons at the next sample sale.

    Yup, also sounds like Bennie's bought them at the peak sample sale price.

    These are not samples. We got most sizes in all 13 styles that came in. If we don't have a size, it is because we have already sold it. These are all 1st quality, they are not damaged or factory seconds. These came straight out of PS stock. Most of them have never been out of the boxes.

    Sample sale is really a misnomer. They were also all first run. It was more like a liquidation sale.
