    Yep, I did recommend setting up a webstore to Rozsnyai more than a year ago. I guess they decided to handle some sales through SourceCulture, but they do accept commissions through email or phone.

    It says on their homepage that a webstore is coming.

    Well, I have to take a trip to Vienna next summer, and this thread has just about convinced me that I should take some time to hop on a train for Budapest for at least a day... it's really not far.

    How do they compare with Vass regarding the availability of wide sizes?
    I spent over 1/2 hour at Vass in Budapest trying to find a last that worked.
    None did. I'll be in Vienna in early Oct., so I can go down for the day.
    Budapest Hotel recommendation for those with money to spare:
    The Gresham Palace ( Four Seasons). Art Nouveau Elegance:

    Stayed there in '05 on a promotion deal. I can't afford it today

    565 gbp, without the vat.

    Was it worth it? I think so, but time will tell.

    The fit is great, and I dig the finish, so if they hold up good, absolutely worth the price.

    Having been to Budapest this weekend I took the opportunity to look in on Rozsnyai. Located next door to the Vass shop, to my eye the shoes looked sleeker and more well designed than many of the Vass shoes. The people working in the shop were certainly more friendly.

    In terms of the shoes themselves, there are some lovely models and they really should sort out a better online presence to showcase them as they could easily be as big as Carmina or the like.

    Don't have any pictures to post but can definitely say that if you are in or near Budapest then a trip would be worthwhile. Additionally, head down the street from the shop towards the river and an excellent restaurant called Babel is located just overlooking the river and well worth a look in!

    Just found this thread and all I can say is WOW! They make beautiful shoes. I'm not such a fan of the large stitching but can definitely appreciate the craftsmanship.

    This may be a silly question, but were shoe trees/bags included in the listed price, or was that an (entirely reasonable) upcharge?
