I've been wondering who manufactures shoes for Paul Smith, and haven't found any information through searching online so far. I was hoping someone here might know. Anyone?

I have always thought that his shoes and apparel are made by numerous manufacturers depending upon the specific item. Maybe if you could show a specific shoe?

Jeez you guys are fast. In particular I was wondering about the Starr oxford brogue, but really any of his shoes in general.

These are the Starrs:



I have a pair in red suede, and I believe several other forums members own these shoes in various different materials and colours.

Paul Smith shoes have been made in the past by Tricker's and Crockett and Jones, although I think now most Paul Smith shoes are made in India or China by I don't know whom.

Starr's and a lot of other mainline shoes are made in Italy (I don't know of whom).

Not that it has the answer to the question, but there's a gigantic thread in S&D devoted to Paul Smith shoes.

All the mainline and I think most of the PS line are made in Italy.
Fairly recently the PS UK website had some English Collection shoes which were as you might expect made in England.
It seems that just the sneakers are made in China or Vietnam.
