GREAT question. The only shoes I've ever paid full price for (post SF) were Carmina in Paris. I loved the styling on the rain last (1/2 calf 1/2 suede) in a brandy color. Going to be great for fall. I rarely see Carmina on eBay and never in US, so I thought, why not. Plus, I feel like Carmina's are still a solid "deal" at full price for what you get.
If you're happy with the neighborhood, you have a great deal for the price. Oh yeah, and as long as the roommate situation stays positive.

I can't wait to hear some of the opinions on these... I like them. They are whimsical. I don't think you'd want to wear them in more serious situations, but for an average day in the office they are fine. I do find them ubiquitous, however, and since coming to SF (and being indoctrinated by group think) I buy mostly woven, neat patterns and paisleys. I still wear my Ferragamos and Brooks, but not as often.

What about half suede / half calf -- should those count as .5?
HF & Hicky don't seem interested in selling "short" sizes through their website.
