I was at the Upper West Side branch of Filene's this afternoon, and I found a pair of black captoe bluchers from Bonora. Â Apparently, the shoes were part of the shipment from Louis Boston. Â Originally priced at $625, I picked them up for $250. Â I'm kind a Philistine in these matters, so I actually had no idea what I was getting. Â It's more than I've ever paid for a pair of shoes, but based on the markdown and the source, I figured it would be worth it. Â Plus, even I could see the high quality of the leather and the two-tone veneered soles. Unfortunately, that was the only pair of Bonora's I saw. Â I'm a 7 1/2, and it never happens that the only one left is in my size. Â Still, it may be worth checking out the other FB's for similar deals.
