    Which to get? Don't have access to physical store...

    F+B

    or

    W+H

    I actually have them both, and prefer the fiorentini's. The F+B's are easier to walk in, more comfortable, and I prefer the overall design/look, even though the quality of the W+H's are above and beyond, the F+B's are still pretty great and I think they are much more versatile.

    How's the leather on those F&Bs? That's the waxed suede right? Those are currently on sale at gimmeshoes in my size, but I was originally looking at getting the regular black leather. Not sure how I feel about the suede (not having seen it in person). Love that shoe though.

    Mikey, those are #745.

    The black #709 that I posted above were from bluefly, and were only available in a size 9 (oos now) for just over $300. The suede #745 that was just posted is on sale at gimmeshoes for $294.

    I don't think local Barney's will have the black ones on sale until like april/may when they have the 40% off sale.

    If you are interested in the 709 (similar to the 745 but zip), I may be willing to sell them as oppose to returning them.

    I have the regular leather versions. The nubuck is nice though, and I think member Snake has that version.

    It's definitely not a waxed suede, or any suede for that matter.

    Barney's has had most F+B (definitely this model) on sale for a while now. Last I checked thay were 40% off, not sure if they went higher

    How do the #745 F&Bs fit? Gimmeshoes says size down 1 full size, like Butteros. Anybody confirm this?
