may have something to do with the fact their common practice was to state an item was in stock, charge your CC right away, give you variable shipping dates that were never fulfilled and then deliver the shoes 2 months later.

Ugh, everything tells me not to order from them, but I'm tempted to try to order a cigar LHS. The code JACKET puts them at $469, similar to the Shoe Mart "discount" from a few weeks ago.

^I order an 8E from there, got them no problem. Think ordering from NRO is like rolling a dice.

I'm torn between the frans boone cigar plain toe models.
On the one hand, I love the all day comfort and kick-around nature of the crepe soles.
On the other hand, I love the variegated antique edgetrim of the leather soles.

Crepe sole, bad lighting:
