Hello Martin ,

Those shoes !

Beauty !

They are spectacular !

And somehow , that very-very large web-page address worked perfectly ! How did you make that happen ?

Thanks so much for sending that address .

Seriously , would you like to be the agent in Deutschland , who sends these shoes to the U.S.A. ?

I think if you arranged some small discount from Manufactum , for buying several pairs at once , then added in a fee for yourself ( profit ) , and also charged a fee for the postage to the U.S.A. , you could make some people in the U.S.A. very happy !! !!

If those shoes feel as wonderful as they look , they must be fantastic !! !!

Where do I get in line to buy some of these shoes ??

Size 45 please , thank you .
