unfortunately, it is or will be. I'm sure half of you come to Beijing at least once a year... So, have any of you used the custom shoe-maker in the back of the forth floor in the new "silk alley" building? I'm not an expert on shoes but some of their models looked quite attractive and they said they could copy anything (of course). Any thoughts on the leather and quality of construction? The prices and apparent level of craftsmanship seemed a cut above that of the surrounding tailors, but I could be wrong. The woman who makes them was a bit arrogant.
