Paolo Scafora for Gianfranco Ferre shoes (I did not now there are so many GF lines).
I know we talked about these on another thread, but just for info's sake for others who may search "Ferre" on this forum in the future, there are currently only THREE Ferre lines. This may change, though, because the company has just been sold (in November) to a new Holding Company. All the licenses from the 80's and 90's have been diffused (so, no more Ferre jeans, GFF, Gieffeffe, Oaks Ferre, Ferre Studio, Ferre White, Ferre Red, Ferre Studio 0001, etc.), and there is now: Gianfranco Ferre: the mainline/runway (which includes clothes, shoes, bags, etc.) Ferre: Diffusion (think Valentino Roma, Armani Collezioni, etc.) GF Ferre: Sportswear and 'younger' (think Valentino RED, D&G, Emporio Armani) Within each line are sometimes collaborations, special things, etc. For example, the Scafora shoes are produced for a particular season (AW08, IIRC). As well, there were a few seasons in 2007 where they had a line of super suits made by Attolini. Ferre is very hit and miss, and changes licensee/manufacture all the time, with lots of shake ups in the company with the designer dying, new designers hired/fired, etc.
OK, the French Alan Flusser Marc Guyot worked on a line of shoes made in Portugal designed to compete with Lobb and EG in quality at a lower price. I've seen them (but never worn them) and they looked pretty good. Here's a pair on teh ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWAX:IT
