I just received my Birds. IÂ´m a bit dissapointed with the quality. Used to NDC made by hand.. this PS looks and smell to cement. like the cheap women ones my family used to do in Spain. The leather is very plastic like! and It has a huge FAIL, it has a paul smith tire 2 cm wide just in the middle of the interior heel. Pain when you walk! The heel is very low, IÂ´ll try to put a usual one when I get them used. Thanks God I paid 150 euros sale instead of 228. Sorry no more Paul Smith, there are cheaper and better modern shoes made in Spain right now like Armand Bassi with far more quality. I honestly spected Canali shoe quality here.. http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=126224 But I got a kind of made in China cheap copy Even those bad done Pradas are better done... That's why I tend to avoid the PS by Paul Smith line. Some are okay though.
