    that particular shoe is i believe found only in Europe, part of their Limited edition or classics line.
    they just put that picture up there just to jazz up the nordstrom santoni homepage. it is not something you can get at nordstrom or order through them, as nordstrom is only limited to U.S. models and whatever is on their catalogs.

    you may be able to call santoni boutique in New york and inquire about it, they may be able to order it for you from europe.


    just to let you know, that shoe (if it is limited edition) can run you up to $1800 dollars.

    Interesting shoe. I was in Paris a couple of weeks back and would have sworn I saw a very similar shoe made by Bally. Don't see it on their website though.

    I would try anyway. My local Nordies seems to be able to get the entire catalog Santonis-not sure if this model would be included in the U.S. catalog or not. You can find the amazing Florence wholecut model more readily if you are open to a second choice.

    Email them
    New York Santoni may have them or can get them from Europe.
    They are either Limited Edition or Fatte A Mano.

    I don't think they are good business shoes unless you are in an artistic field. Casual is your call.

    -I would agree they are not practical shoes. And for the money probably do not stand the test of time. I personally would never buy them as they are not my taste. To each his own though. In this price range, you might want to consider:

    1. Vass on U last-
    2. Kiton

    Disagree. Some girls are just plain ugly.

    Magnanni has a similiar shoe, albeit of a single tone variety. It's a rather fragile affair, and I don't suppose one should expect to wear them beyond summer months. Why would they want to do it in the 1st palce is another matter completely.

    too gimicky, in my view. A one-trick pony. And not a particularly interesting trick at that ...

    Am looking for something a little less stodgy than the run of the mill shoe, but don't like most 'fashion forward' designs, e.g., elongated elven toes, Ronald McDonald last with or without square toe, etc.

    However, since I have poor spatial imagination and have to try a shoe on before I can tell if it is a good style, I will definitely not buy it without first seeing it in person and trying it on, given the "mixed" feedback. [​IMG]

    I believe these are the santonis they label the "frankensteins"
