Some random thoughts and questions: I know that Mantellassi makes a few different lines, does anyone know what line this shoe comes from? Â They retailed for $750 at NM, I got them for approx $360. Â That strikes me as a decent deal *shrug*. We don't discuss Mantellassi's too often on the forum, and I was wondering how these stack up to other shoes. I've been looking for a pair of wholecuts for a while, but to be honest I like the Weymouths better. Â I think I'll see what turns up at the Barneys warehouse sale before deciding whether I'm going to keep these. I can see a line of stitching on the inside of the sole, which leads me to believe they are blake stitched, or maybe hybrid? Â Any ideas? The leather is thick yet very supple. They seem like they'd be very comfortable shoes.
