I am delighted with my recent purchase of the Ellie-Fred 121. I have always made the "spectator shoe" a part of my formal shoe collection for it's beauty and nostalgic elegance. This shoe is very comfortable and attractive. It is well made and appears to be much more expensive than it's price. All my friends love it's two-tone elegance and compliments are given each time I wear my pair. I am buying a back-up pair and I hope there are other color combinations to choose from. All and all, this shoe is the best deal for the buck and well worth the investment. Just glad I happened to stumble up upon it while surfing for a pair of dress shoes on line.( They look great with jeans too).
