Yes I explained all of that after a call with someone on Friday; they said I'd have to email in and explain the situation. Hoping to hear back over the next day or so.I just hope it doesn't take a month to get my watch back. At least I had a little Parisian retail therapy to keep my spirits up through the weekend.

Butteros have been on my radar a while. But then I just recently learned of Saint-Jean de Paris. Hand-made full grain weave. May be worth a try.
Thanks for the contrasting opinion @Munky The AirMax is indeed well known for comfort. I do have my own personal reasons for not buying Nike products, but this isn't a political forum, so I'll let it alone. Having not decided by leaving for Paris, I am splitting my time between a pair of Innov8 minimalist off-road sneakers that served me well in Thailand (daytime) and Allen Edmonds brogues (evening). My feet appear to be faring well. Upon returning to London, I may...
Now, where to for a glass of wine and people watching? Latin quarter I'm thinking.
I don't know gopher, I've had some rough nights resulting from cheese courses...
