    Same here but I would rather my shoe be a bit large than too small.

    Since I live in Sweden and am going to pick them up at the store Im not eligible for the vad deduction, thus the price is a bit too high for a poor student :( Anyway I hope they have the same model in calf skin or suede which should bring down the price quite alot.

    I've never seen an ugly woman from Mallorca. Its all about the geography. In the Caucasus your chances are 50/50, but from anywhere on the Mediterranean your pretty good to go, 360.

    Namor, you bastard!!! I saw those same shoes in Paris and wanted them badly, but they were out of my size. I don't think it is a stock model, however; they told me it was a special edition only for the Paris store and they weren't planning on a restock any time soon.

    Haven't been home yet to check-stuck at work. I asked Betty to send me a notice before they ship but I havent received one yet. Then again, I've asked before and she's never done it. Lol

    Did you order them through Betty or directly from Paris? I've tried for weeks in short, very specific emails to get in touch w/ her but get no reply. In the past she has usually gotten back to me fairly quickly.
