Got another pair this week from a different retailer and learned a thing or two.
Going back to a comment Tellure wrote about a pair he received from Barneys not being of very good quality................. I learned that Barneys has a contract with F+B so are a special run. The first pair I got were from Barney's, the second pair I got were a stock item from Gimme Shoes. The pair from GS were better fit and quality. Also, if you buy used you can tell the difference because a Barney's pair will have the U.S. size stamped on the bottom where as the others will have the Euro size stamp.
