Testoni Shoes Any recommendations / words of warning for Testoni shoes? Bluefly appears to have a nice price for these. Any advice from the resident shoe-gurus would be appreciated.

I think they are considered to be well made shoes, but not to the level of others oft-mentioned here in the same price range.

That is a decent price, but I regularly see Testoni in Off Saks for $300-350.

Its an OK price, but the Testoni boutique will often run sales and the prices get down to the low $200s.

I like their shoes and have a pair, but I am no expert. They have held up well and are comfortable.

One other thing. Bluefly inflates the original retail price on many of their items to give the apperance of offering a greater savings to you. I doubt these shoes sold at the price they claim it did.

Where do you find evidence of that? It seems to me that pretty much all the prices listed are accurate in all categories.

There are several lines of Testoni - I believe that the ones on the Bluefly link (with the sewn-in label) are the black label Testonis, which are their top of the line shoes. The original price listed by Bluefly is probably accurate.

The ones shown in the "suggested items" (with the name printed in silver letters inside the shoe) are their normal line shoes. I have two pairs of these which I bought from Off 5th: the original prices were around $600 but I got them for about $160 each. While I am very happy with them, I think the original prices are way too much: I would compare them to Ferragamos, which generally run about $300-400.

I wouldn't pay more than $200 for the "normal" Testonis but the black label shoes may be worth more.
