    So I'm in the process of moving to Shanghai for work. I've come across a few listings online for this place called Mr. Billy's Handmade shoes, and was wondering if anyone could speak to their quality, or provide any other firsthand information.

    This is the only listing I've found that provides any pictures, as the shop's website seems to be down:

    Any thoughts or accounts?

    While I have no information to add at this time, I am very interested on this question: In fact, I've been planning to get a pair from him for some time now.

    Edit: I remember that the price range was somewhere between RMB 900 to RMB 1,500 (more expensive for boots), Source: website when it was still up

    That's pretty cheap. I guess that might answer the quality question, but it does make it a pretty small investment to at least try a pair.

    These guys are swindlers! AVOID AT ALL COSTS! I sent in a pair of sandals to be copied, and they charged me $140 USD, took over a year to get them back to me (even though shipping was said to be included, they refused once they were done, so I had to pay twice!), never returned my original sandals, and to top it all off, THEY WERE NOT EVEN REAL LEATHER!!! TERRIBLE BUSINESS!

    Gents, any updates on Mr. Billy?

    Just moved to Shanghai and looking for some dress shoe options (~150-200USD). I took a look at the shopping malls (Ballys, Gucci, Boss etc) during my initial search but nothing jumped out at me.

    Any information about Billy? Other brands worth a look at this price point? Loding? Any information is appreciated.
