    ^ Eel? Lovely feel, fairly fragile and supposedly deadly to credit cards with encoded electronic information.

    Dear Etb

    I would like to advise you the buying of classic shoe trees and some cream (meltonian) because it is a wonderful product but it needs a good maintance.

    Bottom line: Silvestro Shoes are highly recommended.

    Guys,

    Many months ago, Paolo from Silvestro introduced his company to this thread. Impressed by the way he handled questions and by the website (see link below), I ordered a pair"”Goldoni in the 30711 last in Antique 113. My verdict: elegant last, beautiful leather and finish, meticulous workmanship. Excellent service, too. I'm eagerly awaiting two more pair, Machiavelli 2 and Pavese.

    On sizing: I recommend consulting the third "male" row (Italian flag) of the chart linked below. I'm a fairly consistent 10½ US, and since most charts convert that size to a 43.5 or 44 Euro, I originally ordered a 44"”which were too big. No problems exchanging, and my new pair of 43 fit perfectly.

    Paolo's email and phone are on the website. Feel free to pm me if I'm not responding to thread questions.

    (Notes: pictures were taken after wearing them a day and in varied lighting; and I have no relationship with Silvestro...just an average SF dude.)

    Best,

    ETB
