    Opinion on these Paul Smith shoes

    I'm a bit of a Paul Smith fan boy so am drawn to these just because of the brand. Are they likely to be the same quality of a Loake or Barker shoe just because they're in the same price bracket...

    Are they going to be the same quality? Maybe, but probably not. I like Paul Smith, but you pay a lot for the brand, in my opinion. The shoes vary quite a bit in quality, depending on range.

    That said, most PS shoes are priced within reason. If you like the style of the shoes, get them. If you take care of them, they'll still last you years. Then again, if you can find something similar with a brand who's more quality oriented, it might be worth looking into that alternative.

    I think you over pay over the odds for an inferior product when it comes to Paul Smith shoes. I would guess they are £250- £300? If I was you I'd save yourself £50- £100 and buy Loakes or Grensons but like you say, you like the brand and it's your money!

    I can't stand that little label on them, I know it's the iconic PS branding but it completely kills them imo

    Price isn't that high though so you're not in specialist shoemaker territory
