I bought my first pair of Paul Green shoes here when they were having one of their fabulous sales & now I am totally addicted (to both Paul Green shoes & J. Gilbert). The shoes are very well made and are extremely comfortable--even the heels! I have never, ever received a blister while wearing any Paul Green shoes. Also, I always get compliments on these shoes, which is a bonus!
While Nordstrom may carry Paul Green, they never go on sale there & don't have nearly as good of a selection. In order to find more choices, you'd have to go to Munich. I must confess I did cheat on J. Gilbert & buy a few more pairs there, but I just couldn't resist. :)
I haven't tried the Taryn Rose, Thierry Rabotin, or Donald J. Pliner shoes since I seem to be stuck in a Paul Green rut, but I did buy a wonderful pair of Blundstone boots there for those wet Seattle days when I can't wear my Paul Green shoes.
Also, if you sign up for their email list, you can be kept abreast of events, sales, etc.
