If I am not mistaken, this are blake stitched and quality wise fall in the Harris category so at $150 and under they are good buy if you like the style.

Those look like the kind of shoes that we will nitpick and women will compliment incessantly. Not quite my style (for $150), but if I were given them, I'd rock them.

For an imitation, I like those shoes mata. Whilst being far from superlative on the quality scale, I have enjoyed my Antonio Maurizi's and have gotten a tremendous amount of compliments on them. If I am not mistaken, they are/were a division of Gordon Rush, but are now no longer sold in Nordstrom. You might be able to find them at Nordstrom Rack however.

So they aren't real Lattanzi's...who cares really?

If they're Harris-level quality, they MIGHT be worth it. I don't know...Bluefly has some good deals, but so many of the items there are actually overpriced, so it's hard to tell. As for the style, I think they're okay, but I'd definitely swap out the laces for something darker.

Save and then Buy a SF Tramezza on ebay for $300 and at least get a decently made shoe, with solid leather, goodyear welt, and a design women will dig.

Bluefly is still overpriced for alot of items, and those shoes smell of Baroni suits, and Mantoni ties. Knockoffs.

And a completely different style. Don't worry dude, those look good. You're probably not going to want to wear them 15 years from now anyway so no big deal if they don't last that long.

I own a pair of Maurizi's.... They look unbelievable! They are my most complimented pair of shoes - at least once every other time I wear them.

That said, I hate them, I loathe them, if they didn't look so good I would buy a dog just so he could chew them up.

The leather is the poorest non-corrected grain leather I've ever seen and it just won't take a shine. I wore them in the rain once and now the squeek nomatter what my cobler does - he suggested I return them. The tassels on the ends of the laces were glued on so I couldn't relace them. They were laced in the shoeshop method when I got them, which you will want to change. So I had to cut the tassels off, relace the shoes, and superglue the tassels back on. The stitching is already coming loose in a few spots and I've worn them maybe 15 times (maybe). The soles are already wearing poorly.

Quality wise I would rate them above Cole Haan but below Mezlan. Personally, I'd gamble buying another pair of Maurizi's at about the $80-100 price point. As a frame of reference, I'd snap up a pair of nice looking AE's at the $120 price point even when not out looking for a pair of shoes.

Hmmm...given that these are $200+ on Bluefly, I'd call that great advice from an experienced owner. Gotta love the boards.
