I don't post very often, but I lurk... and I've really become enamored of the Courtenay in antique burgundy. Unfortunately, they are difficult to find (and have been for the last several months). I believe they are carried by the C&J store in France, and I was hoping someone could help me figure out how to get a pair from them - they do not offer mail ordering. I live in the US, and the C&J store in New York has offered to charge me $1200 for the burgundy Courtenay as a "special order" item, even though they are currently being offered in my desired configuration in France (for well under $1000, including VAT).
So what do you do when you want some shoes from another country? Is a proxy the solution?
Thanks for any help or insight you might be able to offer!
