From runway to retail, the women's ones became somewhat less exciting too:
I don't understand why you can't order the runway version, because the non-runway ones have to be made-to-order from Italy anyway. I persuaded the (very helpful) Prada sales assistant to say I was a VIP customer (ha ha ha) who wanted the runway verson, but he couldn't get Italy to send a pair. The runway ones surely can't be that much harder to make, not least because every Prada shop has mannequins wearing them, but no Prada shop in London or Paris sells them..
