I LOVE MY SHOES!!!
I just wanted to let you know I just received my first 2 pair of shoes from you and they are perfect! Love, love, love them! So glad I found you on the internet. Can't wait to order more.

Hello
thank you for despatching my shoes so quickly, I wore them for my Grandson's Christening, I was absolutely delighted with them, as I have been with the two pairs I bought last year, they are fabulous.

What a choice!
Thanks for the lovely dachshund shoes they’re a joy to look at and a joy to wear. I spotted the tantalising glimpse you’ve offered of your forthcoming spring collection and especially what appeared to be some rose-patterned ballet pumps. Any idea when they’ll be coming in? They looked blooming lovely! You’re in danger of turning me away from heels forever with your lovely ballet flats . . .

Oh wow………
from Angus to Takapuna in a week….amazing. I was sooooo excited to receive my order - I can’t tell you how long I had ‘lusted’ for a pair of Mandarina’s!! and now I have two pairs:) Absolutely thrilled with both  - made with love I can see -  and fantastic service. Many thanks, I love them:)

Delicious!
Oh thank you. They are all so utterly fabulous I want them all! Well done you for creating such delicious foot attire.

Congratulations
I would just like to congratulate you on your exceptional service. The shoes were delivered to my work address on Monday morning and they are ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!! Many thanks - I will certainly make you my first port of call when looking for special shoes in the future.

Delighted
What fabulous shoes - I am thrilled with the pair that I received this week.First impressions of even the packaging are well above average - I loved the orange box.Shoes beautifully wrapped & protected - far better than any other website I have used.The shoe bag reminds me of a certain shop - the head office being in Paris! Shoes are wonderful - I am really delighted with them."

Hello
I recently made my first ever purchase from Mandarina Shoes, certainly not my last! My daughter is getting married and I was looking for something really special to match my outfit. You have provided me with the most amazing shoes, not only are they totally beautiful, perfectly constructed but the are the most comfortable shoes ever - amazing. I ordered the shoes on a Sunday evening - they were with me by 9:10am on Tuesday morning - and the packaging made them even more special, congratulations to all the staff at Mandarina . 

Comments from Vogue
We were delighted to receive this message from a member of Vogue's fashion team the other day:
"Our readers love to have quirky original pieces you don't see everywhere! I saw someone in John Lewis the other day wearing a pair of your boots- I think they were bright green- they're so distinctive I knew instantly they were Mandarina!"

Walking on Air!
My shoes came in this morning.  I wore them, to get the feel of them for a stroll in the park, just around the corner, with my dog. Everybody was dressed in dark colours, heavy boots or shoes and here I was, in my velvet teal blue booties, walking on air! :-)

Truly Fabulous!
Just a note to say thank you for my beautiful red suede shoes. The presentation was a pleasure in itself and the shoes are just Wow, truly fabulous. They make me smile every time I take them out of the bag. Well Done and Thank You.

Admired by all!
I have a pair of the pink ones with leopard skin lining which I have had more compliments about than any other item of clothing I have ever owned! to the extent that at a dinner at Colefax & Fowler I was requested to put them on the table for general admiration! Obviously I tell everyone where to get them from!!

Fit like a glove
Just wanted to let you know that the Dachshund pumps arrived this morning and they are fab! They also fit like a glove! I also wanted to say that to find a company with such great customer service is extremely rare in this day and age and I very much appreciated your help and guidance with this purchase - it shall certainly not be my last! So, again, many thanks and congrats on having such a fantastic product!

Thrilled
Thank you very much for the shoes sent to our London address, I am thrilled with both pairs. I bought a pair of classic slingbacks in aqua last year and was equally happy with them. I met you at the Ardingly Fair last year whilst visiting my mother who lives nearby. Earlier this year I went to a School Reunion in Surrey and a friend of mine who lives in Lockerbie appeared in a pair of your tweed ankle boots in bright pink, they were very much the talking point of the day! I thought you would be pleased to hear about that. Keep up the good work of designing such lovely shoes and many thanks.

Very Jackie Kennedy!
Just a note to say how much I am loving my black and white bow mules I ordered! With a shift dress it is all very Jackie Kennedy! Please do let me know if you ever do them in other colours.
Yours sincerely, Gloria Nicholl

Amazing!
WOW!! The shoes have just LANDED here and with great excitement have opened them up and tried them on - the fit FANTASTICALLY and look just AMAZING!! The outfit is not actually here at the moment (with the 'fascinator maker'!!) so cannot put the whole lot on but they look really great - seem to have lost some weight recently due to SO much catering going on so should all be looking good. Will pay the bill (which I have to say is very reasonable for the great service you have given) as soon as this weekend and aftermarth is over, but thanks SO SO SO much for all your help and the great result. Will certainly continue to pass your name around to everyone who loves/needs shoes and hope I can get more happy customers for you! Thanks and I am sure I will be in touch again in the future.

my order arrived far earlier than I expected
I am writing to register my absolute surprise and pleasure on receipt of my first order with Mandarina Duck. To begin with, I was astonished that my order arrived far earlier than I expected - having only placed the order on Sunday, 15th November, I didn't think it would turn up until at least next week but in fact it arrived today, and in pristine condition. Secondly, the packaging in which the shoes are presented is divine, and the shoes themselves...there are no words I could have put them on and walked around all day in them, as beautiful and yet as comfortable as they are. Thank you so much, I am delighted with my gorgeous new kitten heels, and now I know where to come next time!
Yours Faithfully, Ms. S. Nugara

First Class Service
Just to say the mules arrived safely today. First class service, thank you...I think you could teach these other internet retail sites a thing or two!
Kind regards, Susie

I feel like Cinderella and the glass slipper...they fit perfectly
The shoes are beautiful and it is just amazing how jazzy pink goes with just about everything...I feel like Cinderella and the glass slipper...they fit perfectly & this could be the beginning of a very dangerous relationship between us!
Kind regards, Margaret Flaherty

A true work of art
The brocade slippers have arrived! They are a true work of art- I love them! I put them on and proceeded to glide around the house for the morning feeling very fancy. Thank you again for sending them straight away. I wish you continued success within your business and beyond.
Take good care, Kate McMahon

Perfect for the Wedding!
My spotty slingbacks were just perfect for the wedding I attended earlier this Summer. Comfortable all day and evening (well past midnight). I'll be back for more - soon.
Best Wishes

Yummy!
