Paul Evans Diary From The Road: Part 1

To say we weren’t excited for our trip to Vegas would be a lie. We couldn’t wait to size up the competition and show off our shoes to the menswear elite at sizeable shows such as FN Platform, Project and MRket.

The premise is simple; “We are Paul Evans. We make luxury men’s footwear, and we do it well. Take a look.”

We left New York City’s JFK in the previous night, arriving in LV at 10:30pm to check in at the Wynn Las Vegas. After a quick shower and wardrobe change we hit up Tryst at Wynn. Despite the burden of having to get up in the morning, we were ready to get down to business and spread the word about Paul Evans.

OK. Business time. We suited up, and of course, threw on a pair of Paul Evans shoes. With hundreds of press kits and business cards we hit up the sourcing show at MAGIC. We met with leather goods and accessories manufacturers to explore adding to our product offering.

Having previously been through this process with shoes we were prepared to have thoughtful discussions on adding to our product line. We want to ensure the level of craftsmanship in future products matches that of our shoes. Ultimately we’ll end up going abroad to source these accessories.

A business meeting over steak at Botero and a couple of drinks at club XS ended our day. We knew Monday was going to be the big ticket, so we best hit it hard.

We recommend ordering a full size below your regular US dress shoe size.

Like most other Italian brands (Gucci, Prada, Tod's), our shoes run a full size larger than US dress shoe brands.

Extra room in your toes is by design. Think sleek and sexy.

Resist the urge to press down on your toes to assess the fit. There's always going to be extra room because of the shape of our shoe lasts.

You have the perfect fit when:

There is enough room across the widest part of your foot and your heel sits comfortably in the shoe. If you can confidently strut your stuff in the shoes, you're good to go.

And don't worry about minor heel slippage or extra room in the your toes!

Minor heel slippage is normal in a new pair of leather-soled shoes.

After you break in your new shoes, the heel slippage will stop. Our Italian calfskin leather needs a chance to conform to your foot. If it doesn't, email us and we'll make it right.
