    I visited Vienna earlier in the week, and took a couple of photos of the shoes in the window of Materna. I thought some people might want to see them, I was certainly impressed by the quality for the money and if I end up with the cash I'd consider their bespoke programme.

    I didn't ask, but I think these are elephant:

    No - all I got that trip was a pair of Vass (which was what I intended). If the year goes well I may return in the summer...

    hey, you got a great deal, iirc. plus vash are not shabby at all.

    on a random note: it's a "shame" that you intended to buy hungarian shoes in Vienna in the first place. :foo::D

    Beautiful! With all those black shoes, I guese they didn't get the memo that black is of marginal-at-best versatility. Good for them.

    I like the way that most last are rather 'down to earth', any chance where I can get myself a pair outside Austria?
