    Got it!

    The Italian word for blackberry is "mora", plural "more". I suspect a bit of hilarious Google translating: 50 Euros "more" for shipping. Not 50 Euros blackberries. [​IMG]

    What kind of blackberry do you want to swap - the fruity or the electronic variety?

    You can get them here I believe they can order the style you want as well. http://www.bntailorstore.com/shop/list.php?ca_id=4020
    I was considering a pair of the Novecento, Please keep us updated on your progress.

    I'm a college student as well, just got myself a double monk in the U last and a pair of Old English II, also in the U last. Great quality and value if you compare to the prices of semi good shoes where i'm from!

    The P2 seems to be such a nice casual last from all the pictures I've seen, I can't wait to get my pair. Did you get this pair recently? Last I asked Rezső they could no longer provide 3 piece shoe trees, which I thought was a great shame.

    Just got a reply from Vass saying they recently increased prices, so unfortunately the 520 EUR I was quoted is correct for standard range including VAT, shoe trees and toe tips.

    Yes I received them this week, they are having a lot of trouble with the 3 piece shoe trees supply for some time now.

    Thanks sstomcat!, not easy, I'm still waiting for trees of shoes I received months ago, I understand the situation and just don't put pressure on them, they feel bad enough with the delays. These ones in the chukka (half boot, like they call them) was a nice surprise.
