Years ago I happened upon Fratelli-Rossetti shoe store as I was walking down Madison Avenue, taking in the city's energy and ambience. Spying blue patent leather shoes in the display window, I went in to see more. And yes, indeed, I came out with the prettiest pair of blue patent leather shoes I have ever owned. All of Fratelli's Italian shoes are beautiful and their styles are unique for Americans. Every time I visit Manhattan I swing by the store and usually come out with at least one pair. The craftsmanship is unbeatable and the shoes wear well. Best of all are the inquiries from friends and new acquaintances--"where did you get those shoes?" Ah, it's a well-kept secret....

Now that I am retired I am finding that every single pair I have purchased in the past 10 years still look gorgeous, fashionable and extremely comfortable. I have had one error - In Venice the woman gave me the wrong size and I did bring it into NY; but they would not do anything for me; I was extremely disappointed and to this day still have these soft grey shoes and they still are tremendous after spending quite a few dollars having them mde smaller; that is my only complaint so it looks like I am still out 345.00 on these shoes and until the store will do something for me, I will not purchase again.
