    Links not working. The auto thing that changes text like bluefly and stp into links sometimes messes them up.

    Sorry about that. I'm going to turn that off.

    They are fun, but isn't Maurizi the house brand for Nordstroms? What is the quality like?

    And at ~$231, I am not sure that the value is there.

    Speaking of which, does anyone have up-to-date Bluefly codes?

    what do you make of these shoes? i'm tempted.


    Those are good-looking casual shoes for a Sunday afternoon stroll.

    If anything, the wide verge of the sole distracts my eye slightly from the rest of the shoe. The blunt toe of the spade-shaped sole is not as well matched to the slightly rounder toe box as I would prefer.

    Nevertheless, I think they are handsome Norwegians.

    The shape is rather strange.

    Lattanzi rip off with less than 1% of the quality.

    Easy guys, not many can afford Lattanzi or Branchini, the shoes look pretty good to me. I would not buy at that price however. For about $100-$150 tops.

    I don't think that they are bad looking, and there is no shame in not being able to afford a very expensive shoe. What I do not like is the writing on the insole that is a dead riger copy of Lattanzi. Other than that, I have no problem wth them.

    While I certainly agree there's no shame in not being able to afford expensive shoes, it does seem a shame to sink $150 into anything of poor quality. Not saying these shoes are -- I have no idea -- but I'd want to know more before plunking down cash.
