I've got two pairs but only 6 months each. I've seen plenty of examples in Japan though, that all look good. Very very comfortable. I expect it to be possible to change the elastic at some point, if necessary.

@Stefan88 It was a MTO or can you find it in a store somewhere? :)

Stunning. Santoni Limited Edition is VERY under-appreciated. 100% hand-stitches and hand-welted. The price point is high (around $2200 USD), but they are certainly rivals of Saint Crispins in terms of quality and workmanship.

I have another pair coming in next week. stay tuned.   :lurk:

This is exactly the main problem with the brand - they produce such a wide range of differing quality levels from the mundane to the superb that it dilutes the brand equity IMO.  With St. Crispin's you know what level of quality to expect from the product.  With Santoni, you don't - unless you are familiar with varying model designations and what they mean.

 

The benefit, though, is that if you know what to look for you can get an exceptional deal on the better stuff in the secondary market.  I don't, and that fact combined with their insanely variable sizing keeps me away from taking the plunge on web purchases.

New kicks, Italigente Stoccolma Mogano, chelsea with a single Vibram rubber sole (their version of the Dainite studded sole). I've been working with Italigente to develop the last they are made on, the new classic round15 last, quite pleased with how it turned out:

You are spot on Roger. These limited editions run almost 2 sizes bigger than US. I usually take 9.5 UK but in this case I took Santoni 9 and they have still have a little room to spare.

j ingevaldsson, you work for Italigente these days...I'm not sure if the mods will like you to share their company info or product photos in the future, given that you're not an affiliate vendor and all. We'll, the ways of the mods are mysterious and whimsical. We'll see how it goes.

Anyhow, I like the patina painting on this pair! It's a vivid mix of browns.

. I hear ya. A lot of garbage santoni out there and the sizing can be crazy. Luckily the sizing is pretty consistent for Goodyear and Ltd. Lines.

Still just do some consultancy work, won't work full time until beginning of next year. Anyhow, as I've interpreted things it's okay to post info and pics from your own work (for example me posting these, bespoke shoemakers posting their own shoes etc) as long as you don't link to the website/webshop, put out prices and try to market them in any way. And I know I mentioned the first time I posted Italigente pics that I work extra for them, and think the always so friendly Cleav gave his thumbs up if I remember correctly, so should be cool. But it is a bit confusing I have to admit, for example in the Yanko thread there are several members with shops who regularly put up info about their models and prices, link to their webshop, even gather GMTO:s without being Affiliate vendors, and seen it in other places as well, and it seems to be ok. So not sure exactly what the rules are.

And thanks!
