    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.

    I just worked a deal to take 94 pair of Mantellassi with about 65% of them being the $795-$1050 handmades and the others being the $350-695 blakes. Please tell me some of you guys are Mantellassi people. I didn't get as good of a deal as I get on other items since it's pretty much all clean and all Mantellassi, but just finished hammering out the terms.
    prepare to shop

    I'm very interested, depending on pricing, provided your usual return policy (as stated on your website) applies. I've never tried on Mantellassi before, so I don't know my exact size.

    Do you know when they'll arrive? When will you have pics posted?

    I've searched the Forum: one post said they are sized small, other large.

    Any thoughts on the sizing?

    i own 10 pairs and all are euro 45, so they seem to run fine to me.

    i just finished the deal today so they said they probably wouldn't be ready to ship till monday which means they are here probably following saturday, pix by tuesday? pricing will be in the 65% off of retail range, give or take.

    there was something in 6 all the way thru 13, with 14 pair being 9.5 and 15 being 10.5 (i have 2 big shoe buyers in those sizes so i checked).

    Mantellassi's fit rather true to size; not terribly narrow nor wide. The leather they use is breathtakingly soft.

    My experience is to buy a half size up if you have even slightly larger than width "D".

    I will definitely give them a look. How do they compare to Vigottis?

    Hmmm, on a scale of 1-10, Vigotti would be about a 2 and Mantellassi a 9...

    Are they the ones with sewn-on labels or Mantellassi written in script?
    The sewn-on label is the 'lower' line, so the speak, and should be priced accordingly, I think.

    That said, any 9 1/2?

    In my experience, Mantellassi fits 1/2 size small if you are in the upper size ranges (say 11 and up.) The marked size is only good if you have an ideally shaped (and probably narrow) foot.
