    It's listed on their site for $625.
    Anybody with experience with Paul Stuart shoes -worth the money?

    Thanks, designprofessor

    Last I heard, the Paul Stuart shoes were Grensons, made to the Masterpiece standard. The ones I have are spectacular.

    When I was in their store last week, the salesman said the Made in England Stuart's Choice shoes (the ones listing for $625) are, as has been mentioned, Grensons. They also had a couple shell cordovans ($825) left in their Madison store at that time. He also mentioned they were having a problem getting inventory on the cordovans.

    Arg

    Edit: And I'm very happy with my Stuart's Choice shoes.

    looks sort of like the john lobb vintage 2005

    Thanks gentlemen. Yes it did remind me of the Lobb Vintage...Well, that's one more pair to add to the "wish list".

    I have two pair, one casual and one whole cut. I cant speak to thier quality v. Lobb, weston et. al. But compared to the AEs, Alden they are in a stratosphere above in every way. Fit, feel, looks, smell.....and the dark soles......i thought most of them were closer to 700 now?

    Very shoes overall. I love my wholecuts (bought from Bennies). While I can't speak to their long-term durability the initial sole wear seems to be more than I'm accustomed to from the likes of Weston, Reiter, or Ferragamo Tramezza.

    The Chicago store had these, or something very similar, on sale for $378. There was only one pair left in size 9. I thought about buying, but they were slightly snug. Maybe the NY store has more.
