    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    This Santoni pair. By far the best shoe I ever handled. Renoir French claf. Fits like a glove.

    This does not surprise me. Top Santoni are under rated here.

    Yes. It is a shame very few people get to experience the top LE Santonis. They are on bar with the best shoes out there. Too bad, no one carries them anymore in the US. It has been over 4 years since I saw a new LE. Santoni is a liscensed product in teh US and the person who has the agency does not want to sell the top end shoes. He is interested in teh low pedestrian quality ones you see ate Nordstrom and others. Too bad! I think Santoni shoudl by their liscense back like Ralph Lauern did in Europe, at any cost.
