Yes indeed. The link is below:

http://www.aliexpress.com/store/702551

You'll get excellent service from Bonita Wang there. I received my third pair of shoes from them yesterday and I'm very pleased with them.

Hi all, 

 

I am new to the world of high fashion and saw these SM shoes and was wondering if they were any good

 

http://www.shopthefinest.com/p-57162-sutor-mantellassi-black-shoes-size-9-us-8-uk.aspx

 

I am looking for a shoe thats: a) high quality b) fashionable c) reasonable priced

 

Please let me know I want to order these as they look great and original, hard to find in a black shoe :S

I don't like them. They are too much "fashion" for me, but perhaps that's what you are going for. They are definetely not a wardrobe staple.

Those shoes are utterly hideous. If they're "original," let's just say there's a reason why some things are not done. Stupid ideas can be original and awful at the same time.

I guess the real question is whether you want to be well dressed or look absurd while desperately chasing some runway model-esque look. If you want color in your shoes, pretty much any shade of brown or burgundy would be better.

Those are now on the list of the worst I've ever seen.

Thanks for the useless response. What's wrong with looking like a model? If you don't have anything constructive keep it to your self.

Thanks

Nothing, if you are a model. Are you a model?

Au contraire.  Best advice you'll never follow.

What is the opinion on this ? I am looking to buy something to wear with jeans or chinos but want some second opinions.

I"d just like to throw my 2 pennies out there, I just emailed  Crocket & Jones - New York, benchgrade Oxfords run in the neighbourhood of $800 - $1000.00 USD. Even Barney's has some models around the $750 price point. 

 

A little more than $550.

Buy from UK stores. Either C&J UK or Robert Old. Significantly cheaper.

It's hard to beat Sutor Mantellassi footwear on sales for less than $500. There are plenty of styles to pick from.

You responded to a post that was more than a year old.  C&J used to price their Benchgrade shoes in the $450 range back in early 2013.  They raised prices significantly since then.
