    I got these shoes a few weeks ago from Guyla Kiss through fellow forumite fritzl and finally found time to share a few pics. I feel --and am not alone in this feeling-- that hungarian shoes, maybe with the exception of László Vass, are massivle underrated here. I hope these pictures help to prove you wrong [​IMG].

    So here we go:

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The shoes are nothing short of stunning in real life. They are performing great so far. Originally made bespoke for someone else, the fit is almost perfect for my narrow feet. Nothing blobby or bulky. In fact, comparing them with my other shoes, they look quite sleek and the sole is trimmed nicely. It's not the fancy stuff we're seeing from G&G, EG and all the others but it's the most comfortable shoe I have as well as the most elegant, if only because it doesn't scream "elegance" from a mile away. For the record: Until I go bespoke, all my new bought shoes shall be made by master Kiss. Thank you fritzl!

    That design normally looks rather blobby to me, but I really like that pair. Nice score!

    Not a fan of the penis-like split toe on that shoe. Very phallic.

    I have an older brother to this shoe, also made by Mr. Kiss. They are really awesome. It is amazing how well they fit, seeing neither fritzl or Mr. Kiss saw me or my feet in person or took any measurements. I call it magic.

    I'll take some photos tomorrow.

    They're new old stock, so to speak.

    They're of course no blue boat shoes from WalMart. Maybe you could sell me yours? PM sent.

    Please don't say you're one of the two lucky candidates to have bought the rest of these triplets. I was about to cry when I heard fritzl had already sold (not Phat Guido spelling => no pun intended) these.

    Please do not be upset - it is just an opinion of one mere mortal. Please try not to scuff them with your walker.
