I was told just a couple of days ago that Ferragamo DOES make the main line Ermenegildo Zegna shoes (don't know about the lower Zegna lines though). Mind you, this was from a Harrods sales assistant, so not first hand from a Zegna specialist. She did sound pretty knowledgeable about various shoes though.
I personally don't fancy the style of shoe in the original post, but I do have a different pair of Ferragamo for Zegna loafer and the construction appears good. I'm not "shoe-aware" enough to say whether it compares to Tramezzas rather than regular Ferragamos. Just eyeballing them though, it appears superior to my regular Ferragamos and about equal to Tramezzas.
