Doesn't really matter what the deal is if the shoes you end up receiving do not fit properly. Â I have never paid that much for a pair and my collection includes comparably (retail) priced shoes such as Lobb, EG, C&J Handgrade, Tanino Crisci, Peluso, among others. Â Thus, I am leery about dropping that kind of money for a pair that I have tried on in the proper size. Â Having spent a lot of time looking at the different lasts and styles, I know exactly what I want in what color, with which last, with which detailing. Â Only thing I don't know is the size and that is the most crucial factor. Â I will contact Gabor tomorrow to figure this out.
