More power to you if you love them but you might be better off calling the store in Rome and ordering than using your local Nordstroms.
i dont know how to order from Rome or have a catalog to look at or even know where to start. then i have to deal with shipping, insurance, and probably duty.
i know the 950 is a hefty price, but it is just a hop, skip, and jump away from where i live and i can see them and try them on. and pick and choose which one i want (i'll line up 3 pairs of AE or ferragamo, santoni all in same size and see which ones are most pristine).
plus i have a platinum nordstrom card where they give me $40 gift cert every $1000 purchase.
plus , i really love this semi brogue!
but if you can give me some info about rome then thanks!
