Question About Ferragamo Sneakers
Silverporsche, I discover you’re in Missouri, so I will assume that the Neiman Marcus you frequented stocks the same range of Ferragamo sneakers that I saw at the NM in Philadelphia/King of Prussia.
The Ferragamos I noticed at KOP had been all decrease/mid Grand_Couturier vary footwear. The order of quality, from lowest to highest, I believe, is:
Ferragamo Studio (low cost, overpriced, “glued”)
Ferragamo Lavatoriale Originale, sp , (first rate high quality Blake building, nonetheless overpriced at retail of round $four hundred-$500)
Ferragamo Tramezza (Goodyear welted, retail round $650-$800, quite nice leather-based; exhibits up on Ebay every now and then for $200-$280, and that’s an excellent deal)
Gucci sneakers are always a thriller, undecided precisely what Italian manufacturing facility they are made, quality doesn’t justify asking worth but the brand-title and style/fashion could justify purchase to some.
Ballys was very first rate about 20 years ago. Their high of line is the Scribe, which ferragamo tablet case is Goodyear welted. The last/shape might be hit or miss, some are very elegant, some not. I might simply persist with the Scribe line and keep away from the remainder. That stated, I do have a non-Scribe pair bought about 10 years in the past (full retail at $450) that is corrected-grain leather. I’ve Topy the sole and it’s a pleasant beater shoe that is lasted and nonetheless going.
Bruno Magli prime of line is, I believe, the Platinum. That’s all I know about it. Typical BM you see at dept stores are overpriced.
Santoni’s at most dept shops are a waste of money. There’s fairly a number of ranges of the Santoni’s, the higher/finest ones being the FAM (fatte a mano) and the top of line Limited (very exhausting to seek out within the States, retail for $1500-$2300, very very good antiquing on the leather-based). Even the FAM’s are apparently subdivided into a few ranges. Our forum FAM nut Brian can higher clarify the details. Me personally I buy solely the Santoni Basic traces that are Goodyear welted (retail for about $seven-hundred-$900, and will have a “Goodyear” stamped on the sole) and a few FAM’s.
