So I was at Nordstrom on Michigan Avenue on Saturday and saw a rack full of Santoni on sale. Most were from the FAM line and were marked down to $600 from $1000. I noticed thought that some were marked down to $389 from $650. This didn't make any sense since some were the same shoe, just a different size.

I eyed a pair of shells that just happened to be in my size. They were marked down to $389. My salesman, Willy, was very helpful. During the fitting he realized that they were mis-marked but said they would honor the price on the shoe. So I grabbed my first pair of shell cordovans for under $400. Kudos to Nordstrom and Willy for the sterling service.

I just called and the SA said they were still $599:(

Curious . . .

. . . whether those black (rubber?) heel inserts can be replaced without disturbing the rest of the heel. I'm always running down my heels. Those have interesting brass (?) nails in the heels, but apparently only on the outer edge. Wonder why? They would probably complicate heel replacement, so maybe that's the reason for the inserts.

Very handsome shoes, however.

:icon_smile:Congrats on the sale!
Those are outstanding shoes.
I love how thick the soles are.
And that shell..........forget about it!

Great looking bluchers! I think shell works particularly well with a shoe like this. Well done.

Great find and hope you get lots of wear and enjoyment. BTW, did they have any loafers or just bluchers, any PTB?
They only had two pair of shells, both were the same but just one in my size. No loafers and no plain toe. They did have several other's from the FAM line at a rather substantial discount (<$400). You might be able to call and have a pair shipped. Ask for Willy.
