    What do you guys think of this shoe? I just want to get some of your opinions. Is it pretty good quality for the price ($530)? I really love the look of the boots. Are there any other brands that makes a similar style boots?

    I've been looking at those as well, and I really like them. I would prefer them be goodyear welted instead of blake stiched, but I think I can live with it. What I like about PS shoes are they are narrow in appearance, which I think look the best for dress shoes and boots paired with jeans with narrow leg openings. Oh and the color of PS shoes are also amazing.

    I don't know at that price. I think the PS logo is a good percentage of the price.

    Yeah, I'm sure; however, I also think he's come up with some of the best looking shoes I've ever seen. Maybe it's just me, but I love the looks of Paul Smith shoes. [​IMG]

    i just tried those on over the weekend, they're great boots

    is it worth the $530? for many it will be as I guarantee they wont be any normal sizes left at saletime

    It's not worth it for me, tho a couple tweeks here and there and I would be wearing them today

    I've bought PS shoes at full retail and on sale. You pay a lot for the name, but the shoes are really nice - well constructed, good fit, etc. It's unlikely that you'll find them on sale. You may just have to bite the bullet and spend the cash if you really like them.

    Those are sweet though. It would kill me to pay retail for them...

    foo', already did at the store when SA wasnt looking

    I've bought most of my PS shoes/boots at full retail and are one of the rare items that I've NEVER regretted paying full price for. Shit there's as boot from last winter that I'd pay a premium to get in my size since I was too stupid to get it when I had the chance.

    Nothing that Paul Smith makes worth it's retail price.
    It is British Banana Republic-Ted Baker mutant.
    Pretty much everything they make are affected junk for tween douchebags.

    Agreed - I don't regret what I've paid for the shoes. Or my rampant douchebaggery.

    Those boots also come in black which looked great, the dip dye leather effect in black makes it look much more interesting than just a normal full grain black calf.

    I guess we're all douchebag tweens, deep inside. PS helps us realize our full douchebaggery, on the outside.

    I like them. They are not cheap, but if you can get a comfortable roomy fit my guess is that you will like them based upon their appearance and the number of fans of Paul Smith shoes on SF. Hopefully you can purchase them at a store where you can try on a variety of sizes because PS shoe sizes seem to vary a lot by model and may not be at all close to your regular size.

    i don't know much about lace-ups leather shoes.. but where does PS rank in terms of informal shoes.. ie the brogues/captoes/oxfords and stuff compared to other brands like ndc? I'm not a boot guy so no fryes/redwings

    Anyone know where these boots can be had? I'd love to try them on, if nothing else.

    dunno, where are you located?

    the obvious answer is the PS store in LA/NYC

    Some Neiman Marcus stores have Paul Smith but I don't know if they would have this particular model. It's worth a call to your nearest one.

    I noticed that the newer line of Paul Smith shoes have a garish stamp on the inside that says, "Authentic Dip Dyed by Paul Smith" or something along those lines. I don't know why they added that really unnecessary embellishment.

    That being said, I love Paul Smith accessories/shoes while I'm not a huge fan of the clothing line. I'm still looking for some burgundy Starr brogues if anyone sees them in 6.5...

    Burgundy Starrs were almost 2 years ago...I got a pair of "poppy red" Starrs which is a less dark burgundy last year

    If the runway show is an indicator there looks like an awesome burgundy laceup coming in F/W

    picture please GetSmart?

    Or I could not be lazy and just find it myself... ... ... [​IMG]

    Two years ago? I saw some burgundy starr brogues in both Korean and Japanese PS stores over the Christmas holiday. Perhaps they are just old stock.
