Question About Ferragamo Sneakers
Silverporsche, I notice you’re in Missouri, so I’ll assume that the Neiman Marcus you frequented stocks the same vary of Ferragamo shoes that I saw on the NM in Philadelphia/King of Prussia.
The Ferragamos I saw at KOP had been all decrease/mid Grand_Couturier vary footwear. The order of quality, from lowest to highest, I consider, is:
Ferragamo Studio (low-cost, overpriced, “glued”)
Ferragamo Lavatoriale Originale, sp , (first rate high quality Blake building, nonetheless overpriced at retail of around $four hundred-$500)
Ferragamo Tramezza (Goodyear welted, retail around $650-$800, fairly nice leather-based; shows up on Ebay once in a while for $200-$280, and that’s an excellent deal)
Gucci sneakers are always a mystery, undecided precisely what Italian manufacturing unit they are made, quality doesn’t justify asking value however the brand-name and vogue/fashion might justify purchase to some.
Ballys was once very first rate about 20 years in the past. Their high of line is the Scribe, which is Goodyear welted. The last/shape might be hit or miss, some are very elegant, some not. I might just stick to the Scribe line and keep away from the remainder. That stated, I do have a non-Scribe pair purchased about 10 years in the past (full retail at $450) that’s corrected-grain leather. I’ve Topy the sole and it’s a pleasant beater shoe ferragamo loafer sale that is lasted and nonetheless going.
Bruno Magli high of line is, I consider, the Platinum. That is all I find out about it. Typical BM you see at dept stores are overpriced.
Santoni’s at most dept stores are a waste of money. There’s fairly a few ranges of the Santoni’s, the better/best ones being the FAM (fatte a mano) and the top of line Restricted (very exhausting to search out in the States, retail for $1500-$2300, very very nice antiquing on the leather-based). Even the FAM’s are apparently subdivided into a number of ranges. Our discussion board FAM nut Brian can better explain the small print. Me personally I purchase solely the Santoni Basic lines which can be Goodyear welted (retail for ferragamo loafer sale about $seven hundred-$900, and may have a “Goodyear” stamped on the only real) and some FAM’s.
