    Last week I received, after what seemed like ages, my 2 new pairs of shoes I'd ordered from Silvestro (Benson's). Guess once you've placed an order for something nice, you get so excited and impatient that weeks seem like months [​IMG]

    The shoes look awesome, and are very comfortable - nice fit. I especially love the Burgundy colour that Paolo managed to attain, not to mention the excellent workmanship and beautiful finish.

    Few details about the shoes:
    • Shoe construction - Blake+Rapid
    • Calf leather
    • Hand coloured
    I've attached below some pics of my latest addition to my recent addiction (shoes!). I think the pictures speak for themselves.

    • Model Pirandello in Burgundy
    • Model Macchiavelli 3 in Antique Yellow
    I was very particular about the shade of Burgundy, and sent Paolo a picture with the colour I was looking for. All I can say is that I'm extremely pleased with the results. Excellent service too, I must add.

    Don't think it'll be long before I place my next order, perhaps the model Petrarca in Antique Orange.

    I am pleased to know you like our shoes and I hope you take care about them because they are so delicate and they need some cream and shoes tree.

    P.S. I didn't think the model Petrarca liked very much. 2 o 3 people asked me information about it

    I really like the Tricker's shoe trees. They are cost prohibitive for me (unless lasted trees are available I stick with the cederville epic), but really a nice accessory.

    Thanks lads. Got the trees for 18 GBP at Pediwear.co.uk. They were shipping Tricker's with free cedar trees and I emailed them asking if they could instead ship the Tricker's shoe trees. Very happy that I did so, because they fit perfectly.

    Great looking shoes and a good deal on the trees.

    Both look great, I agree about the trees.

    Paolo, besides shoes do you also make belts? I'd probably need two, to go with the Burgundy and Antique yellow coloured shoes. Burgundy - Model Pirandello [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Antique Yellow - Model Macchiavelli 3 [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
