Crazy sandal prices - Page 2

Look at the picture below (sorry about the messy picture); lt is a good year welted sandal from Laszlo Vass's book `Handmade shoes for men'. These would be around $800 - $1,000 U.S, maybe more. Don't know who makes this sandal: it looks girly but, in 110 degree weather l wouldn't knock them back. A pretty decent sandal l would say.
Hahahahahahahahahahahah. I can only assume that this is one of your wierd jokes. Those are probably some of the ugliest mandals I've ever seen - it doesn't matter if they were stitched by teeth by the best shoemakers out there. Besides, you Alan Flusser fans out there should know that a good shoemaker, like a good tailor, doesn't necessarily have good tastes - gentlemen do. Use your damn judgement. If you are going to wear sandals outside of the beach, get a pair of leather flip flops. Otherwise, wear a pair of Rainbows or Reefs for the pool and hanging out in your backyard. Eric, I could never understand (unless you live in Malibu or Hermosa, or Santa Monica,) why people in LA wear sandals at all. Your feet get completely grimy after about 5 minutes, and freeze everytime you go indoors. Lightweight sneakers always seemed, for me anyway, the way to go.

That would explain a lot if marc37 has been joking on his posts. I thought he had been serious.

The Guccis do look a lot better than those.

It's not that I don't like the Prada sandals I picture, on the contrary I like them very much, but the price is not justified. Unlike like LV Lombok Loafers, which cost $475 (amore than they should), but are pretty well made, have fairly good leather (quite supple), have a well-designed rubber driver's sole and fit particularly well if you have a slightly narrow foot, and require smaller sizes. Thus, the price is more justified on the LV's than the Pradas. Jon.
