There are different levels of quality of Testoni shoes. The pair you are looking aren't from their high end "Black Label" line but they are still good shoes. Without seeing them in person I would guess the quality is about the same as a mid-range Ferragamo, Bally etc. (Ferragamo and Bally also do some artisan-crafted shoes but not as many as Testoni.) I do like some of the high end Testoni's and have owned several pairs of their Black-Label shoes in the past. The styling of the line tends to be a bit more radical than other high-end makes. I always see a pair or two in their line that I like though. Have you checked out the Testoni website
? There is also a website for Testoni USA
. As for fit I've noticed they vary from model to model. They experiment with shape quite a bit and that of course impacts how they fit.
