This thread is the only substantive informational reference that came up when I Googled Eduardo G. shoes. I've bought 4 pairs over the last couple of months, at one Daffy's or another in NYC. It would have been 6 pairs, but the other two styles I liked haven't been in stock in my size. At $69.99/pair, I can't imagine I've ever gotten a better value on anything. I was even seduced into a pair in black, after having sworn to never wear a black shoe again. Right now, DSW.com has a split toe in a 9M for $115.00; if it were my size, I'd jump on it. I don't understand how the original retail is only $150.00 - I've never seen a $150.00 shoe at that level of styling and construction.
