    The Ricard boots are slightly less expensive here:

    I found that website late last night too. They also have the black ones available in that site. Are they a pretty reliable online retailer though? ANybody have experience with them?

    Unfortunately you're right: they made it, and it completely ruins them.

    Picture of that cheap looking crap attached below.

    On a more on-topic note, Paul Smith shoes are indeed maybe a bit pricey for the quality... Just like every other designer stuff anyway. The overall quality of Paul Smith mainline shoes is quite good though: they're really comfortable, the dip dyed leather keeps looking good and the overall quality of the shoes is holding up really well over time, ... If you like their look and can afford them, I'd say go for them, I don't know of any other designer doing those dyed leathers so well.


    Do you likes it Kenneth Cole?

    when you buy $500 Paul Smith shoes you pay $200 for the construction/materials, $100 for the name, and $200 for the shape/design. Their design is really second to none, they have that perfect medium between classic and high-fashion.

    I have 3 pairs and they are probably my most stylish shoes.

    if someone wants to turn this into a Paul Smith ShoeP0rN thread, let me know.

    I've purchased from them at their retail location on Hayes in SF. I don't think their online inventory is real-time, but they are a legitimate store.

    Thanks for the link keykoo - I wanted to get them from Gimme last year but they didn't have my size.

    If we told you, then we wouldn't be able to get them on sale...

    Barneys and Neiman Marcus always has shoes like half off during season off sales. I've paid mostly around 220 for my PS shoes, I'm sure some people get them for even cheaper. I got one pair from the Paul Smith online store when they hit 50% off...

    I wish the barney store here in d.c. had paul smith shoes. I've only seen one pair at Neiman marcus and it's that tan color I really don't like. I'd only go with dark dark brown or black.

    Ordered these today, totally stumbled on them by accident and they had my size left on sale

    Got to see these boots IRL while in Paris and they were really badass so I'm stoked they'll be in my horde by next wednesday
