Do you know about Camper shoes?

My friends in Italy tell me this shoe brand is very popular there. For all I know, it could be a best seller here in the US too, but I had never heard of it until last month, when my friend mentioned it.

Then one day, on a walk down the streets of Soho, I found a Camper store, and I had to take a look. Hmm. Very pretty shoes. Maybe a little too casual for me, or maybe they target a "younger" crowd. Or maybe I'm not hip enough for them. Or maybe they're just not my style. I don't know. I would have to try them on, and if I would discover them to be comfortable, I could buy a pair.

But they need to be very comfortable, because the price is on the steep side... let's say this pair I like:


I love that it looks like a pair of flats, but then it has a tiny bit of heel, and that is so much better for you than wearing flat shoes. But how much would you pay for something like this? I'll tell you how much they want: $165.

See what I mean? They're pretty and all, but I'm not sure about the $165.

This is another pair I like from their collection:


But again, I'm not a fan of the price: $160.

I don't know, there is something about these shoes that attracts me, maybe it's the fact that they are so popular in Italy and I know Italians are picky about their shoes and clothes, so there has to be something special about them, or maybe mine is just pure fashion curiosity. 

I'm not sure if I will cave and buy a pair, yet, but in the meantime, do any of you own a pair?

They are too pricey for me, but very appealing. These two, especially: http://www.camper.com/en/eshop/producto.xhtml?option=46305-007, http://www.camper.com/en/eshop/producto.xhtml?option=46452-005

I believe my mother recently bought a pair. Since we are of same shoe size I might be sneaky and wear them.
