I ran across these Paul Stuarts on eBay, and I had to buy them. They had only been worn one time. I wore them a couple times since the purchase. I wanted to get opinions on them, and see if anyone knew who made them. They are actually much darker than the pictures. They are handmade in Italy.

If they fit well, then you did very good.

Yes, I think you did well. I have no idea about the maker, but the shoes are nice.

They actually fit great. I normally take a 9D, and these are an 8.5D. I couldn't turn down the price, and I decided that I could easily get my money back if they didn't fit. Turns out that they fit perfectly.

I don't think they are Grenson b/c Grenson is in England. These are from Italy.
