I just read, in a Spanish paper, that a new shoe shop has opened in Madrid, allegedly the first shop in Spain of the French brand "Septième Largeur". Some of the photos looked interesting, kind of traditional shoes with a modern touch. Quality was said to be great, but I have a feeling that the author did not know a lot about shoes - some of his comments suggested that he did not really know what a blucher was, he gave a quite curous explication of what Goodyear welts were about, and stuff like that.
I think I will pay the shop a visit, but I wanted to see if there was any positive or negative info on SF about this brand. I made a search, but no hits. Anybody knows this brand? The website of the Spanish shop is still under construction, but there are some images and it seems that you can get customized colours: http://www.septiemelargeur.es/
I found a link to what appeared to be the main website but it was empty: http://septieme-largeur.com/

If you don't read french, google translate is your friend:

Just select language, paste in the URL and hit return.


Thank you. Unfortunately, my French is fairly rusty, but I think that I get the general idea: not too bad, but some aspects could be improved, including the quality of some of the stitching.
