What Is Your Opinion Kiton Pic 1 Or Santoni Limited Edition 2, 3
post #2 of 11
I like everything about the Santoni more, except for that huge sole outcropping*. Way out of character, ruins the shoe.

*Sorry, brain fart, can't remember the technical term

That Kiton is out of this world.

Kiton's is the winner to me; however, you are paying 1100 for marketing and probably the shoe is truly worth about 1000 if that. But it is superlative. And only say probably Lattanzi, Vass, some bespoke, etc. heck they all are getting up there in price. So you have to 1. love it (and you'll know when you just gotta to have something) and think what you will wear it.

So when do you bespoke/mtm shoes over RTW in pricing? (sounds like a thread topic)

Kiton RTW is $1100, for some reason I thought it was $2000+

It is! I was saying 1000++ is pure marketing expense/brand name mark up probably and the other 1200 is probably the actual value of the shoe=2200.

That particular Kiton shoes look nice. But does not look any special in my eyes. I like Santoni as those norvegese stitchings catch my eyes.

I like neither, but I prefer the Santoni shape a little.

I like the santoni a bit better; the fact that it only has three lace-holes makes it look less run-of-the-mill.
