There is a French website selling Stefanobi shoes for about $300.. US customers don't have to pay the VAT but shipping runs about the same amount so the total would be a little under the listed price. If you aren't familiar with Stefanobi they are owned by LVMH and they make the Berluti ready-to-wear line. Very very nice shoes, better than Mantellassi in my opinion. You can find them here: Stefanobi Sale La Botte also carries Tods, Church's, Crockett & Jones, Heschung etc a good prices. Another great site is: Tanino Crisci Tanino Crisci is a top Italian make - they were on last years Robb Report "Best Of the Best" list for ready-to-wear shoes. If you order them off the website they are a lot cheaper - $300 - $575 instead of the $550-$750 they charge at the New York store.
