Visited the Maftei trunk show yesterday, despite the weather in NYC.  Roxana couldn't have been nicer to someone who came in not wanting shoes right now.  There were a lot more shoes there than I expected.  They had just started making wholecuts and she had a few of them prominently displayed.  From an admitted novice point of view the construction of the shoes seems first rate.  I can't tell you if there is any structural, or wearing issue with pegged construction but...
